Small Oddity

Recommended Posts

I've noticed, that when I create a weblink for weather (weather.desktop), using U.S. weather.gov in Moksha, no matter which browser I use, I land on this web page...

But in another DE such as LXDE, it goes directly to the forecast as you would expect. 

 

Just seems strange only Moksha or Enlightenment behaves this way.

Could there be something incomplete in the map reference? I do see a latitude number but miss a longitude for your geographical location.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Can you post the contents of the .desktop file you are launching?

Hello Randy

 

I do not know why it does not work but the solution is easy (At least it is working here after some testings). Just put (") quotation marks around the link in your desktop file and that's it...

 

Exec=xdg-open "http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=41.364125082307794&lon=-85.05901555682169"

As I was looking at the Lat/Long I was thinking, Damn, he's close to me. Then I realized it was Randy and, well, he is relatively. Only an hour.

Yep, I've spent a few hours working in your town. The contractor I worked for liked to do a 100 mile radius.

New it was gonna be something like that. Thanks! I think Enlightenment is a little persnickety though!  :rolleyes:

 

-edit-

 

It definitely fixed it. Funny thing is, I have weather radar set up the same way but it always worked. Must be some of that PC voodoo Jeff talks about! Lesson learned, just use quotes.
