Any ideas?

## Edit
So I poked around a bit more and realized I don't have a "mouse" binary. The Kobo touch uses a binary called "pickle" to write to the screen. I guess I'll have to poke at it a while and see where I get.
The "init mouse failed" error is perfectly normal, because the Kobo doesn't have a mouse input,
and it doesn't prevent the app from continuing to run.

The Wifi and Touch both use pickel to display images. (Though I have been able to drive
the Touch's screen directly, see my Tetris port)

From the error you posted, the script hasn't even gotten to drawing anything yet, but is
trying and failing to load a font file. Did you double-check that the font file "Cabin-Regular.ttf"
was in the same directory as the "weather.py" script?
