Version: (using KDE KDE 3.2.3)
Received through the Debian BTS (#236813).
It looks like kweather uses konqueror (or both kweather and konqueror use the same functionality in KDE) to get weather data from the remote site. If konqueror has been configured to use a caching proxy, then kweather will be fetching cached weather reports while offline, and possibly even while online. It would probably be preferable to be able to configure kweather as to if it should use the proxy.
Thanks - Ben.
1. But are there any sites where users *must* use a proxy in order to get web access? For example, is that true for people who work in the Canadian government?
2. Do the weather report web servers send the "Pragma: no-cache" and "Cache-Control: no-cache" HTTP headers? If not, why not?
3. Do all proxy servers respect those headers?
4. Is there some way Konqueror could ask the proxy server never to return a cached copy of the webpage?
kweather isn't maintained anymore. A replacement could be the weather plasmoid.
If this bug is still valid for the weather plasmoid please open a bug against
it (Product: plasma, Component: widget-weather).
