MythWeather Release 0.10 BUILD/CONFIGURATION INSTRUCTIONS -------------------------------- Requirements: MythTV (v0.10) installed and working Internet Access (to get the weather!) Once you have unzipped the data file and if you have met the requirements above, simply type 'make' in the main directory to begin compiling. Compiling note: If you get an error on building this, that says something about 'mkspecs', then you don't have the QTDIR environment variable set. On debian, this should be set to /usr/share/qt. I hear on mandrake, it's /usr/lib/qt3. You'll need to figure out what it should be on your system, set the variable, and attempt to compile again. Once the make is completed, do a 'make install'. - libmythweather.so will go into /usr/local/lib/mythtv/plugins - images and data files will be put into the newly created /usr/local/share/mythtv/mythweather directory CONFIGURATION ------------- MythWeather configuration is now done in MythWeather... To enter the configuration section, press 'i'. From here you can select: 1. Units (lets you pick between Imperial and SI) 2. Location (pick the letter your city begins with, then find your city in the list, see below for key binding which should make this quicker). 3. Aggressiveness Value (this is how fast MythWeather will timeout while trying to get weather data). NOTE: You don't need to do anything other than pick the desired setting. Once highlighted, just hit the left arrow key to go to another setting or when you are finished with the configuration, hit the 'i' key again to save. If you want to cancel your changes press the ESCAPE key. NOTE: If you keep getting "!!! 3 Failed Attempts !!!" (everytime you try), pick a city that is nearby. NOTE: If you can't find your city but you can find it at MSNBC.com's Weather Site, let me know the city name/accid. MYTHWEATHER KEYBOARD COMMANDS ----------------------------- Left Key Goes back one page, this also extends the time spent on the page you are at. Right Key Goes forward one page, see above. 'p' Key Pause, wait on the current page until space is hit again. Numeric Keys You can check other weather by keying in other ZIP codes. 'm' Key Switch between celsius and fahrenheit. Can also be used a way to force a data update. Enter Key Resets the location to the database default, then updates the data. From within Configuration: Key Action --- ------ 1 Up 25 2 Up 50 3 Up 100 4 Beginning of List 5 Middle of List 6 End of List 7 Down 25 8 Down 50 9 Down 100 i Exit & Save Configuration ESC Exit Without Saving OTHER INFORMATION ----------------- Current the program cycles through the three pages. Each page is shown for 10 seconds. When the user intervens and changes the page it waits for 20 seconds. The weather data is updated every 30 minutes or until the user selects a new zip code (or even the current zip code again). TODO LIST --------- - Finish list of weather types and icons KNOWN ISSUES ------------ I don't have all the weather descriptions and icons. If you see a '?' icon or weather description as 'Unknown [XX]', please email and let me know the XX number, the type of weather at www.msnbc.com for that day. THANKS!
