New Weather Application Needs Testing And Feedback

Those of you who visit my homepage know that I work closely with WeatherBug in a consulting capacity. After much work on the by the WeatherBug software developers, I am thrilled to announce that they have released a Java based application into the wilds of the Linux world. Available both in Deb and RPM format, this self-contained app will install easily on most popular Linux distributions. Just remember to make sure that Java is already installed first. if you need help with that, do not hesitate to leave me a comment below for immediate help as always.So here is where I need your help. I have done extensive testing on Ubuntu Feisty, but I need some help with Gutsy. We are aware than one needs to add this to Sessions or autostart in order to get it running with each system boot. More on this and other features we would like to see can be found here. If you have additional features you want to see added - no matter how out there, come into the forum there and speak your mind. Please remember though, this is a Labs project as is currently in Beta.

Why not use the existing Weather apps in Linux? Besides being rather unattractive and not being updated nearly as frequently, weââ¬â¢re in BLUE. And we combine the data from both red and blue together. ;)

And if you prefer to leave constructive feedback here instead, please feel free to do so. Thanks!
