Docky weather Docklet stopped working (CLOSED)

I use mint 13 64bit (mate) after update manager did an update yesterday the weather docklet in Docky stopped working.

I have the latest version of Docky any clues…

have you tried uninstalling it then reinstalling it?

Hi Tramlink

Have you tried after booting quitting docky the restarting you’re problem may be related to this take from the Ubuntu forums

Ok, I have identified the problem (I think).

I have had the dockey on automatic startup when the computer starts. But the problem is something to do with the lock-in. The keyring comes after the dockey program in startup. In this way somehow it does not get activated when dockey starts up.

On the other hand if I first start the computer and then manually startup Dockey the pop up with the keyring comes and after entering that dockey works fine.

I have tried to reverse the order of program start up, with out succes. Anybody have an idea of how to fix this, so Dockey can start up automatically on computer start, and the applets still work?

Thsi seemed to do the trick for some people

Good luck

Graeme

If restarting docky helps, let us know … maybe we can add a delay to docky’s startup.

Docky is not the problem.

Docky itself starts just fine but the weather docklet has stopped working. It’s as if it stopped receiving infomation have tried changing the location in the docket.

Tried installing and restarting but no go.

We’re not saying it’s a docky problem … we’re wondering if the weather applet is attempting to get its info before networking is available.

What happens if you set dock to NOT autostart … reboot … when at the desktop, wait 30 seconds … then manually start docky (preferably from the terminal to see if there’s an output)

Starting Docky manually has no impact.

The weather docklet is set to check every 10mins for an update.

The update that caused this issue was for HP printers.

can you run:

sudo updatedb

then post the output from:

locate docky

OK, here’s what I’d try next

a) Purge docky

sudo apt-get remove --purge docky

b) update the locate database again

sudo updatedb

c) search again for docky

locate docky

d) manually delete anything in the results that is in your home folder.

e) reboot … to clear anything that might still be memory resident or in tmp

f) reinstall docky

It had no effect as weather still not working.

Thanks for all your help but have opted to move to Cairo dock as weather is working OK on that dock.

The problem is taking me away from my work.

Okey dokey … cheers for closing the topic :slight_smile:
