My desktop with Typhoon
This article was originally written on Stormcloud which now is a paid app. Typhoon is the free fork of Stormcloud.
I am not much into weather apps but the simplicity and beauty of this tiny weather app, Typhoon has taken me by surprise. Installed it in my laptop and planning to keep it for a while. Does it’s job well and adds a new dimension to the look and feel of your desktop!
To install on Ubuntu:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apandada1/typhoon $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install typhoon
Another way to integrate weather information on your desktop is My-Weather Indicator. When you click on the indicator icon it shows a lot of details (more than Typhoon) on the weather. To install on Ubuntu:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
