Description Christian Tietz 2014-10-09 15:53:40 UTC
There is an upstream bug:

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Gerold Schellstede 2014-10-09 19:46:36 UTC
My weather plugin suffers from the same bug. It says "no data".
Comment 2 Christian Tietz 2014-10-09 20:01:47 UTC
I could fix it for me by recompliling the plugin after applying the patches that are mentioned in the upstream bug and have already been pushed to git.
Comment 3 Greg Kubaryk 2014-10-11 23:50:47 UTC
I can confirm that applying patches 1ff71669644a0b824a8a5ba9b40771ee4fb8a76b and 7df303bc5fa649299e18efeb5d4b801614030488 from upstream git resolves this issue locally.  For users not interested in waiting, this ebuild is epatch_user enabled.

Backported fix

Sorry, your patches doesn't apply for me to xfce4-weather-plugin-0.8.3-r1. Attached is backport that we have used in Fedora, it works for me.
Comment 10 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2014-10-29 17:06:49 UTC
patches committed, and directly to stable, special case, because this relies upon external services
