Here's the backports, then. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KkmvB ... 1Rb5tx_aaF

Sending to main.
I can download it but I can't install it. I get as far as extract. Extract to where? How do I install it?
Just right click on either .deb file (xfce4-weather-plugin_0.8.10-1~mx17+1_i386.deb or fce4-weather-plugin_0.8.10-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb) depending on what arch your system is (i386 == 32 bit) (amd64==64 bit)
As for me, I'll be doing this on a 64 bit system with the file called x

Code: Select all

fce4-weather-plugin_0.8.10-1~mx17+1_amd64.deb
and from the popup menu pick open with then select gdebi package installer. You 'll get a warning that there's an older version available. Click Close. Click Install package, your su pwd. and when it's all done, you can close the
package installer window.

I installed and checked and it location still wasn't working. So I removed it, restarted, reinstalled and it now works. It might just need a logout and login after upgrading for it to work.

OWO - thanks for screwing this one together for me/us. :number1:

Still doesn't work.

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i $xfce4-weather-plugin-0.8.10
dpkg: error: unknown option -w

Type dpkg --help for help about installing and deinstalling packages [*];
Use 'apt' or 'aptitude' for user-friendly package management;
Type dpkg -Dhelp for a list of dpkg debug flag values;
Type dpkg --force-help for a list of forcing options;
Type dpkg-deb --help for help about manipulating *.deb files;

Options marked [*] produce a lot of output - pipe it through 'less' or 'more' !

Man .... hmmm.

I am not very sure that dollar sign is correct or not, in front of package name. If you have no any other deb file on directory where you saved downloaded
xfce4-weather-plugin-0.8.10.deb
also you can use command dpkg - i *.deb from terminal to install it.Or you can use command
aptitude install *.deb
(needs aptitude to be installed before if missing).Have a look on aptitude's manual here:

Code: Select all

https://wiki.debian.org/Aptitude
Or simply as advised, install gdebi and after that double click on the deb package that you want to install.

penguin,
1 - using dpkg -i <package to install.deb> has trouble installing necessary dependencies if not already on the system so either RC on the .deb file you want to install to get to gdebi or substitute gdebi for dch -i.
2-The $ (dollar sign) is not needed.
3-the new plugin is in main now so just open mxpi (mx package installer), select full app catalog, paste

Code: Select all

xfce4-weather-plugin
into the search box and click the checkbox next to this package and click install.

Thank you MX developers for putting it in the MX Package Manager. Now it installs the way it should and works.

Anytime you upgrade a running program like the weather plugin, you'll have to shut it down and restart it to start using the new version. Rebooting accomplishes this, but isn't really necessary.

The manual also has a section on how to install deb files. I would have thought that would be the first place to look...
