I present Harmattan the weather conky  :)

This conky was inspired by various awesome weather widgets from deviantART and other sites.
Also, the awesome flatts rainmeter skin served as an inspiration for one of the  display modes:…


The font used for the preview is the amazing Infinity font:…

The modified weather icons belong to the faenza icon set:…

For further credits of all the photos, open the "Credits" file from the "README" folder!!

4 display modes:

This is some super great work i might say! beautiful conkies!

However, i am running into a bit of a issue here. The weather bit seems to be empty, and i keep getting the message "Conky: Unable to load image '/home/umar/.cache/weather-1.png" in my terminal ("umar" being my username). 
I have checked and rechecked my WOEID and that seems to be fine.  The yahoo weather api for that WOEID also seems to be returning the correct data.


Could you please help me with this? Thanks

PokerLegion Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014 I am not sure but.. see red arrow? I think there should be icons :o
zagortenay333 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Did you modify the conky yourself?
PokerLegion Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2014
Yeah but after i tried with one of  "default" config and it was the same, no icons. Strange isn't it? But now i am using your Jelly conky and so far so good :) Thank you.

What is your terminal output after you start conky?
PokerLegion Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2014
"Conky: Unable to load image '/home/legion/.conky-weather/assets/Transparent/God-Mode/separator-v.png"

Is that all? Also, did you put the ".conky-weather" folder into your home directory?
