Gnome clock weather not updating

Conky needs Double Buffer Extension (DBE) support from the X server to prevent flickering because it cannot update the window fast enough without it. When using a dual screen configuration, you will need to play with two options to place your conky window.

I am not sure as of yet whether or not this is something an update from ATT/Samsung will fix, or if the app writers need to update code for the SGS4. NONE of the 3rd party launchers have this issue and widgets update perfectly.Versions older than the latest and greatest may be maintained and supported by your distribution, but we don't support them - if you create bug reports on the Xfce bug tracker for older versions you will simply be told to update your version of the plugin and the bug report will be closed.The first time you open the configuration dialog, the weather plugin automatically configures itself to fetch weather data from a place which should be near you - based on your IP address.After recently purchasing Samsung’s new flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4, I have had a weird issue with some of my beloved weather widgets not updating.I had tried several different ones and after a period of time, the widget would stop updating or responding to the manual update input from touching the widget.Later on, they continue and explain why it’s been added.

Saving you the technicalities, basically what CM guys are saying is that the default sources of weather providers have changed their frameworks (APIs to be exact) quite a bit and as a result, CM userbase is now too big for them to contain at the current format. So now, in order for CM not to exceed limits imposed by weather providers, the widget has been modified to allow each user to connect to a certain provider (from a limited selection), thus remaining within limitation boundaries.

Conky is a system monitor software for the X Window System. It is free software released under the terms of the GPL license.

Conky is able to monitor many system variables including CPU, memory, swap, disk space, temperature, top, upload, download, system messages, and much more. For a few example configuration files, see this page.

IMHO, this should be addressed by Samsung and carriers ASAP.

As you may have noticed, the transparent clock and weather widget in Cyanogenmod (CM) have changed a bit recently.

It will also try to determine the units used in your country, but you can alter these on the units page. button and searching for the city, country, address, monument etc. Only latitude, longitude and altitude will be used for the data requests, so you can change the location name to something you like.
