I try to install it in Kubuntu 15.04 beta (via plasma and manually), but I cannot see the Widget in the list.

Whats wrong?

Hi, I don't know how it can be installed via plasma but here is how I would be installing it manually to my home folder:
1) Download the source (weather-widget.zip)
2) Unzip
3) Copy folder plasma-applet-weather-widget-master/org.kde.weatherWidget to ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/ (so you will have now existing folder: ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.weatherWidget/ with some stuff in it)
4) Copy file plasma-applet-weather-widget-master/org.kde.weatherWidget/metadata.desktop to folder ~/.local/share/plasma/kservices5/ and rename it as you like (e.g. weatherWidtget.desktop)
5) Restart plasma (e.g. by logging out and in again)
6) Now try to add the widget. Its name is "Weather Widget" in Widgets selection.

Hi clearmartin,

I have done all the steps without any success.

OK, lets narrow the problems:
1) What version of plasma do you have installed?
2) Make sure you have also qt5-graphicaleffects package installed (or something like this in your distribution).
3) Can you see the widget in widget selection?
4) Or is the widget added to panel but does not show anything? Or some error after clicking on it?
5) Please post output of this command:
tree ~/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.weatherWidget/
6) And this command:
tree ~/.local/share/kservices5/
(maybe you will have to install "tree")

Great plasmoid. Would it be possible to have an option to disable the blue text about "xxx minutes ago" in some future release? I is not at all legible in most panels or task bars and looks like broken pixels more than anything else. Would be awesome. Good work!
