The Gnome-Do Weather Docklet – Totally Awesome

Filed under
Software
HowTos

Gnome-Do comes with a variety of different docklets for use with it’s ‘Docky’ interface.

For example the ‘Trash Can’ docklet lets you right click on it and choose to empty your trash directly, or simply click it to see your deleted items. The ‘Clock’ docklet when clicked, shows a mini-calendar within the dock pane itself. There are also CPU Monitor, battery status and even a volume control docklet!

The Weather Docklet is even more useful than these to me, and can provide up-to a 6 day forecast right inside your dock! No floating Widgets or Screenlets – detailed forecasts just a click away!

The weather icon will sit in your dock and tell you both the current conditions (via an icon) and the temperature (in either Degrees of Fahrenheit depending on which you choose.)
