Description Dimitar 2010-12-10 20:42:03 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.5.4) 
OS:                Linux

Ok i've set it up and what is telling me is that outside is -273C ;no-wind;0.0mBar; __% humidity.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
I just set up my location:Sofiq,Grad-BG(weattercom) and it never updated or show anything different than -273C...(details)
Comment 1 Anne-Marie Mahfouf 2010-12-10 21:19:20 UTC
Confirmed, all wetter.com locations give -273°C and no other information.

I did not look to see if other providers are available and if they work.

[Comment from a bug triager]
Just tested on KDE SC 4.6beta2, "Buenos Aires, AR" location. It doesn't work with "wettercom" (empty information and -273ºC temp), it works with "bbcukmet". 
So it seems to be related to the "wettercom" engine

This looks related to bug 236309.

Comment 3 Thilo-Alexander Ginkel 2010-12-11 01:47:00 UTC
wetter.com does not report the current weather conditions, only the forecast. So, practically, there is no data for the LCD weather station to display. One should think about displaying some more sensible values than -273 ºC, though...

SVN commit 1205588 by mart:

show N/A if the temperature is not available fr engines like wetter.com.
the plasmoid is completely useless in this case, but this isn't
something we can do anything about, since the data is missing from the
web service
