[Solved] Weather plugin 8.10 on Ubuntu Studio 16.04

Hi everybody,
in order to avoid manual insertion of latitude I just compiled xfce4-weather-plugin 0.8.10 form archive.xfce.org.
I removed the old version with Synaptic and restarted the panel, but it's still not recognizing the new plug-in.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance,

Andrea.

Can you post back the configure and build commands that you ran and the output of those commands? It's possible that the library prefix you used was not accurate for your distro.

And specifically, where was libweather.so installed to?

Re: [Solved] Weather plugin 8.10 on Ubuntu Studio 16.04

Hi ToZ, you always answer quick.

I did

sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr

than

sudo make

and finally

sudo make install

For what concerns the outputs, if I scroll up my terminal shows only the "make-install"'s output and part of the "make" one.

Is there a way to view the full output?

Where did libweather.so get put?

locate libweather.so

Also, ./configure shouldn't be run with sudo - only "make install" should.

I'll have a look on my xubuntu machine.

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/xfce4/panel/plugins/libweather.so

I run "sudo ./configure" with no real reason (just because I saw "/usr"), but "make" gave me an "access denied" error.

Re: [Solved] Weather plugin 8.10 on Ubuntu Studio 16.04

Here are the instructions that I used to get it to work (using this package):

./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
make
sudo make install

Edit: after uninstalling the original package and:

sudo apt-get build-dep xfce4-weather-plugin

Thanks a lot ToZ, everything works fine now.

Could you please tell me what those "prefix=" and "libdir=" are?

Edit: I forgot to say that

sudo apt-get build-dep xfce4-weather-plugin

returns me something like "no source package found for xfce4-weather-plugin", but it works anyway.

They let you specify installation directories of the different components. Here are a couple of links that explain it:
