Guest_13xfce4-weather-plugin stopped working on 18.04LTS.  This commit fixes the bug.  https://gitlab.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-weather-plugin/-/commit/97601ab2ad1f9810516be6d3d91c5c9b16d6397a  Is there any way to get this version backported to 18.04LTS?12:53
Guest_13I'm running a 32-bit version of 18.04LTS and can't update to 20.04LTS to fix13:02
pmjdebruijnyou can download the sources and rebuild them locally13:08
pmjdebruijnor put the commit in debian/patches (and put in in series) en rebuild your current version locally13:09
pmjdebruijnnot sure if that patch will apply though13:13
pmjdebruijnoh it might13:13
pmjdebruijnit's simply enough13:13
Guest_13Those patches won't apply cleanly to the 0.8.11 version of xfce4-weather-pugin.  Can I build the newer version from focal or groovy on a 32-bit system?14:13
pmjdebruijnI doubt it, given that xfce moved to gtk314:28
Guest_13So if the patch won't apply cleanly, how do I go about getting a working xfce4-weather-plugin working on 18.04LTS 32-bit?14:42

pjotterDoes anybody know what;s going on with xfce4-weather-plugin? It stopped working a couple of days ago.22:27
tomreyndid you look up the latest bug reports, yet?22:31
pjotterI'm not sure where to look. I searched google and came up with some discussion about it on a mint forum.22:31
tomreynhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfce4-weather-plugin is where bugs filed against the packages in ubuntu (by running "ubuntu-bug xfce4-weather-plugin" ony our system) would end up.22:33
tomreynbut this is actually a package maintained by debian as seen at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xfce4-weather-plugin22:33
tomreynso you may want to look at https://bugs.debian.org/xfce4-weather-plugin also22:34
tomreyn(keeping in mind that xfce4-weather-plugin versions in your ubuntu release and those current debian releases may differ)22:35
pjotterSeems they switched to a new API version22:37
pjotterJust wondering... is it hard to recompile this package for 16.04 and 18.04?22:38
tomreyni wouldn't know, never tried. there are few dependencies, though, which should be a good thing.22:40
tomreynxubuntu 16.04 has been EOL since april 2019, though: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOL22:41
pjotterI understand22:41
tomreynpjotter: if it's really as simple as applying those two patches then you should be able to just do this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpdatingADeb22:49
pjotterI've never done this before. I can just edit the files mentioned in the patch and then recompile?22:50
tomreynyou'll need to add "deb-src" lines to be able to download source packages with apt beforehand22:51
pjotterWhere can I find the source for  xfce4-weather-plugin22:51
tomreyn...to your /etc/apt/sources.list, that is22:51
pjotterI can't download them manually?22:51
tomreynsure, you can, it's just less convenient22:52
tomreynapt doesn't ust download, but also verifies the digital signatures. you can also do this manually, but it's not as easy.22:53
pjotterOk, so I added the deb-src line.22:53
tomreynxfce4-weather-plugin is in universe, so you just need the deb-src for that22:54
pjotterdeb-src http://nl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main universe multiverse restricted22:54
pjotterSo how to I download the source? (sorry for the many questions)22:55
tomreynapt-get update && apt-get source xfce4-weather-plugin22:56
tomreynsudo apt-get update && apt-get source xfce4-weather-plugin22:56
tomreyn^ that rather22:56
pjotterit worked :)22:58
pjotterI now have the 08.9 version source22:58
tomreynyeay :)22:58
pjotternow edit the files... ;)22:59
tomreyni jumped ahead, though, you need to start form the top of https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpdatingADeb22:59
pjotterI understand. But I first need to apply the changes, right?23:00
tomreynwhether oyu first install the build dependencies and build tools or do that after editing the source code should not matter23:01
pjotterI think the build depenencies are already on my system from previous attempts to compile stuff23:01
tomreynyou mean the build utilities, or this very packages' build dependencies?23:03
tomreyni.e. first grey box on the wiki23:03
pjotterMo, just de build dependencies.23:10
pjotterI made the alterations to the files.. let's see how this compiles.. :)23:10
tomreyngood luck, that's the point where i need to weasel off23:17
pjotterit;s running... :D23:19
pjotterHurray! we got some errors :S23:21
pjotterundeclared something... I'll dive into this23:21
