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!!

Apologies if someone already asked this, but what is your current theme for the rest of your desktop (icons, windows, fonts, etc)? I like the way you think :) Great conky!

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
