I'm happy to have finally found plasma-widget-networkmanagement/weather widgets in experimental but I have some problems with them.
The weather applet is very similar to the other one bundled at the moment with KDE4.2 that allows only to choice weather services among a subset of countries belonging to the Commonwealth. Since I live outside these Countries (actually in Italy) this renders useless such applets to me like to many other people. I have compiled by myself and tried another of this applets from kde-look it's called yAWP licensed under GPL:
It has a nice way to configure and it's able to be set just entering the name of my really small city. May I propose this weather applet for future packaging instead of the two or at least as a real alternative to the old one?
About the networkmanagement applet, I'm completely unable to make it work. It an not connect to hidden AP, like mine, and even if I change the AP options to broadcast the ESSID, since I have a WEP128 passphrase encoded network I can't still connect. What happens is that the applet changes the passphrase from the original 128bit to 40bit. Why? I have tried to put directly the hexadecimal translated password in the proper configuration field but unsuccessfully. Does anyone know if it's actually possible to use this applet on WEP128 encrypted networks and give me hints? Thank you
