Elementary Rainmeter 1.5.1 (old) by FlyingHyrax Elementary Rainmeter 1.5.1 (old) by FlyingHyrax

*Elementary has been updated!

This is the old version,

Click here to go to the new version!


I'm leaving this old deviation up instead of replacing it with the new version because of changes in the translation system.
(The new version may not support all the languages supported by this older version for quite some time.)

*If you experience a problem with these skins then try the new version first to see if it has already been corrected.
Thanks!




How to:


:bulletblue: Make sure you have Rainmeter installed (version 2.5 or later).  If you are new to Rainmeter, you may want to check out some walkthroughs to get familiar with the program, like the "Getting Started" section of the manual  or this Lifehacker article.
:bulletblue: Download the .rmskin file from the link near the top right of this page. You should be able to run the file with Rainstaller, which will put all the files in the right places on your system.
:bulletblue: Edit the file "...Skins/Elementary/@Resources/Settings.txt" to change settings. "...Skins/Elementary/ReadMe.rtf" has explanations of all the options!

Love your skin.
Everything works just fine except for the forecast (I use "rotterdam,nl" but it is the same for e.g. "newyork,newyork"
Did Weather Underground change something?

Thanks.

Hi ruudje62,
I'm not sure.  At the moment "rotterdam,nl" works OKAY for me; you might also try using an airport code (EHRD).

Just started using this... Fantastic.. One question, How can I add a second weather location. Do I start by adding a second Weather directory to \Rainmeter\Rainmeter.ini? example: Weather2?
Reply
:iconflyinghyrax:
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2013
You can just dupliacte the weather skin folder, but you'll have to change some variable names to get things working like the original.
To start, just copy "...\Skins\Elementary\Weather" as "...\Skins\Elementary\Weather2".
At that point you can have two weather skins but they will both use the same location.
So edit settings.txt (in ...\Elementary\~resources) and add a new variable for the second location, like "location2=(someWeatherCode)".
THEN in the copies of the weather skin, you need to change the "URL" line in the [msrCurrent] and [msrForecast] sections so that it uses your new variable.

Hopefully that is clear; if I did not explain in enough detail or you have further questions just ask.  :)

Very nice and looks great. I'm using it right now.

The only issue that i've found so far is that some spanish words are too wide and they look cut. So i've replaced some of them for a less wider synonim. A precise case is with the word "Actualmente" (now) that i've translated to "Ahora" (now). Is a little less formal and represent the same idea but it looks nice.

FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2013
Thanks MyCompleX!
That does tend to happen.  I spaced everything for the English words so when using different languages things can be a bit off.  In that precise case, you can also modify the "X" position of the string to move it further to the right, so the left side doesn't get cut off.  I might change the Spanish translation to use your synonym, that way people won't need to edit the weather skin...

I'm sorry but I still don't understand. How exactly I should change my weather location? I'm editing the settings.ini file in the Resources directory, but I don't know what code/link I should put in. I'm looking for a code for Krakow in Poland. Code from weather.com (PLXX0012) doesn't work. I don't know how I should change it. :/

:iconflyinghyrax:
FlyingHyrax Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013
No problem, kryptonim! :)
You're on the right track, but the weather skins use the old WeatherUnderground.com api, not Weather.com. Try editing the "location" line in the "Settings.txt" file to:

location=Krakow, Poland

I couldn't get decimal coordinates to work, but the above seems to function okay.
