gNome3 getting hibernate in the menu and the weather with correct location

Posted: 2012-05-07 in Linux

2 apps you should install. Weather and the alternative menu.

Weather

$ sudo yum install git
$ cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
$ git clone https://github.com/simon04/gnome-shell-extension-weather.git gnome-shell-extension-weather
$ gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.weather woeid SWXX0020

you get your woeid from http://edg3.co.uk/snippets/weather-location-codes/ your contry is down the bottom of the page

The alternative menu

$ sudo yum install gnome-shell-extensions-alternative-status-menu

If it DOES NOT work you need to change the version supported in metadata.json with your current linux version.
So for the below copy the 3.3.4 in the version list from the gedit.
$ uname -r
3.3.4-1.fc16.i686
$ gedit ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/gnome-shell-extension-weather/metadata.json
