[SOLVED] No weather in conky on new ArchMergeD Openbox install

Post by batman » Sat Dec 09, 2017 8:51 pm

I am using a modified version of the AP-Weather conky that I copied from my laptop running ArchMerge. The time/date/system info are displaying correctly, but the weather portion is blank (just degree symbols, but no temp/icon/city etc.). Is there something additional that needs to be installed on ArchMergeD for conkys with weather? I did double check to make sure my API and city code were correct.

Did you install jq

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S jq

If you changed the conky, it is best to post the code in here between code tags.

Adding jq did it--thank you!! If you had told me a few months ago I would be installing a distro and using/creating scripts on github, I never would have believed it. Your time, patience, and knowledge are much appreciated.
