Your saved places somehow got corrupted. In the next unstable release, Weather Indicator will detect this and reset them, but for now you can do one of two things:

Either run this command in a terminal, which will reset your saved places:

   gsettings rest apps.indicators.weather places

Or apply the patch I have attached here to Weather Indicator, and restart it, and it should not crash again.

I got the same crash and applied the patch. Now I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/indicator-weather", line 2551, in ok
    old_place = wi.places[wi.placechosen]
IndexError: list index out of range

This is after adding one location and pressing OK.

Had the same error and it turned out that the culprit line was

apps.indicators.weather places '["[", "]", ["115958", "Chihuahua"]]'

I did ran "gsettings rest apps.indicators.weather places" in the terminal and tried setting the location again via the GUI but it seemed to leave an empty value as the first value in the list, as seen above. So I closed the app and ran "gsettings rest apps.indicators.weather" places again and then ran "gsettings set apps.indicators.weather places '[["WOEID", "NAMEOFYOURCHOICE"]]'"

You can get the WOEID for your location at weather.yahoo website. If I search for New York the ending part of the url looks something like "new-york-2459115/" and that number is your WOEID.

e.g. if you lived in New York, New York you would run something like "gsettings set apps.indicators.weather places '[["2459115", "New York"]]'"

Sorry I left the original typo from the previous poster it's supposed to be "gsettings reset apps.indicators.weather places"

Hope this helps some people.

Gracias, ahora está funcionando en Ubuntu 12.04 para Buenos Aires.
Ejecutar en una terminal gsettings set apps.indicators.weather places '[["468739", "Baires"]]'

Put even update from here: «ppa: weather-indicator-team/ppa» adding its repositories and working too slow (3 + minutes to change).
