Many people find it convenient to have the weather forecast or current weather at their fingertips. This guide will help you do just that!
Adding a Weather Widget, or any applet in Plasma, is easy. Widgets and applets are one of the things that makes Plasma unique to most other desktops. While this widget is built-in, there are many more made by other users in the KDE Store.
There are two methods, the latter of which is described in this Guided Solution:
Configure System Tray....
Miscellaneous, click on
Apply, followed by
Configure Weather Report...
Once set-up, this will become an easy at-a-glance way to see your current weather. You can click on it for more detailed information, such as your current forecast.
Content will be added as needed.
