Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Atareao.es has created quite a few Ubuntu applications which include Picapy, My Weather Indicator, Touchpad Indicator, Google Reader Indicator and more. Starting yesterday, all these great applications will be available from a single PPA: ppa:atareao/atareao. Add the PPA using the following command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao && sudo apt-get update

My weather indicator

My Weather Indicator

Further more, 'My Weather Indicator' was updated today, the new version brining a new API for the Weather (the Google API is now used instead of the Weather Channel). In my test, there were't many cities available for my country but you can at least see all the available cities in a drop-down and if yours is not available, select one near it. Thanks to the new API, 'My Weather Indicator is a lot faster and there are fewer errors.

Other changes include new icons for the weather and new translations: German, Italian, Galician and French.

To install 'My Weather Indicator', simply add the Atareao PPA as stated in the beginning of the post, then use the following command:
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
