Works ok, but there's nowhere to type in an address. that would be a nice addition

I installed this, but it shows only white screen.
What's the matter?

Cool screenlet, but a search function would be great (and an option for a starting location). Also, I tend to use the mouse wheel a heap on google maps but it doesn't work in the screenlet.

Really a great screenlet, kudos, but simple as it is, the command interface is not very powerful and it's very uneasy to start at the same predefined location, almost a couple of light-years far from earth ;), every time the screenlet is launched.

Because this is just a screenlet and not a web browser, I think that its interface may go well as simple as it is, but it would be very nice to be able to search for your desired location.

Anyway, you see that the most of your wanted places are likely to be near where you live and near the last place you where looking for last time.
So I think that the screenlet should log and remember the last coordinates shown and start from there the next time it's lauched.
This should (just supposing, I'm no programmer so maybe I'm wrong) be easier than implementing a search dialog.

Again: thanks for this beautiful screenlet and for all the excellent work you are doing on the program.

Hi.
Your screenlet is really nice as it doesn't look like a web page.
Do you think it would be possible to do the same kind of screenlet with the SystranBox translator ? : http://www2.systranbox.com/systranBox.php?path=systran/systranFR&lang=fr&urlmode=window

Really nice.
I was wondering would it be possible to do a Radar in Motion screenlet?
One that would show your local radar weather.

I am actually working on a weather radar addition to the SmoothWeather screenlet. It didn't make it into the 0.2 release, but hopefully in the next release it will be there.

I hate to be a bother...but unfortunetely I use Fedora Core 6 and use Sceenlets version 0.7 and for some reason I'm unable to get the latest version of Screenlets working on my system. Anyway...would it be possible for you to release a version of your Weather widget that would work with Screenlets version 0.7. I'm certain many people would like that.

Thanks for you great widgets,
