    Tried this app out yesterday. It worked OK, but broke Compiz. I’ve un-installed it and also un-installed and re-intsalled Compiz, but it still won’t work. Any ideas on what the problem is?

    Nope, doesn’t work on 10.04. I added the PPA and installed as advised in the post. I see a menu entry for it in Accessories, but clicking it does nothing. I can add it as an application launcher, but again, clicking it does nothing. It does not otherwise appear in my panel, even after a restart and I don’t see any other way to add it to the panel as an indicator.

    Any ideas?

    I had the same problem with 10.04 and had given up, but then I removed the social networking items from my panel and indicator weather suddenly showed up.

    sudo apt-get remove indicator-me

    Michael: thanks for the tip, but unfortunately it still doesn’t work for me. Oh well…
