I have not tested it myself on the Aura H2O, but it should work. The weather app cannot run at the same time as Nickel, you have to stop Nickel to start the weather app.

Using the file in this thread I got the telnet and ftp connections going on my H2O. However, the ftp connection is terminated after about 2 minutes of inactivity. The wifi connection is terminated rather quickly too if I don't have the experimental browser loaded. Is there something I can do to extend the connection time?

Have you killed the "nickel" process? If you don't I think it drops the wifi connection when idle.

Andy, I'll try killing the nickel process.

Do you know how to start and stop the web browser using the console terminal? Because it's full screen every time I do a revision to the the html file I have to use the power button to power down and then back up again and go through the menu to restart the browser.

I'm looking at the process list under "top" but I can't identify the process or name.

Andy,

Killing nickel also kills the web browser. The browser doesn't get a separate process id.

I don't use the browser for my application so can't help I'm afraid. After a reboot I start the browser just to get the wifi connection up then I telnet in and kill nickel. My weather and calendar displays then run every hour under cron and update the screen from the python script.

WEATHER APP ON H2O

I just tried it on the H2O. It went as described on the OP but after it asked for my LAT and LON coordinates then it flipped the settings screen upside down and went away.

I had to restart the H2O and now when I run the command:

Code:
/mnt/onboard/.python/weather.sh
the weather screen does not come up but the stuff under the main menu shows up upside down. Inverted 180degs. The touch screen commands think the screen is still rightside up so you can't just turn it and use it. Powering of and back on restores the correct orientation. Something is wrong.

I thought the problem might be that the image file might have to be different for the H2O. But the write to /tmp/img.raw at line 31 in weather.py is not happening at all so something else is up.

Where does python leave its error logs?

Hello,

I just found this article, and I realise its quite old now but hopefully someone can help. I am getting a URL error, I am imaging that the weather service in the original is no longer around or something. Or maybe I am reading this wrong.

Either way here is the error and I would appreciate any help.

Code:
[root@(none) koboWeather]# /mnt/onboard/.python/weather.sh
Kobo Wifi weather forecast started.
Getting weather information . . .

Look through this thread for some changes I posted that were needed due to changes in the website.

That was it, thanks for the help! I may return for advice as I wish to modify some things but I will attempt to do it on my own first of course.
