Weather applet does not automatically refresh

Bug Description

The weather applet gets stuck on refreshing (with a strange black square icon) when my system starts. I guess that this is happening because awn starts before my wifi connection and so, does not refresh the wheather applet. I have to manually make it refresh after the internet connection starts.

* Distribution: Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic)
* Method of installing Awn: From ppa repo:
* Awn version: 0.3.9-rewrite-bzr1631-karmic1-1
* Window manager: Default of karmic with compiz
* Video card and driver name/version: nVidia GeForce Go 6150 - Driver version 185

I got A patch :

In file, find
     def activate_refresh_cb(self, widget=None, map=True):

(line 275 but I have modified the file so I'm not sure).

Remplace the line :


by this code :

        if self.refresh_conditions() == None:
            print "Weather Applet : Failed to retrieve data, refresh in 10s . . ."
            self.applet.timing.delay(self.activate_refresh_cb, 10.0)
            return False

So, if the applet cannot retrieve data, it try again in 10s .

Thanks for the patch. I'm going to review and refactor some of the network code of weather to make it more robust and I will hopefully also fix the missing-icon icon (black square) (it should show the logo of The Weather Channel).

Sorry to not have done a more complete patch, but I don't know python so I have made a quick fix.

Fixed in revision 1873. If the applet fails to retrieve conditions, forecast, or map, it will retry up to 3 times (10 seconds currently between each attempt). If it still fails after 3 times, it shows a notification.

seems to be working on my system fine as of 1873.
