I downloaded lynx = lynx- command is in my
apps. folder and the Terminal sits in my dock.

I did try to enter few lynx -dump “for weather and temperature” on either
Shell and Image but it aint working…
Am afraid Lynx do not recognize geektool… or vice verse.. or I an cooking up elsewhere… any idea?

ie:
lynx -dump http://printer.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=YOURZIPCODE|head -n 7|tail -n 1|awk ‘{print $2 $3}’

or

lynx -dump http://printer.wunderground.com/auto/printer/global/stations/03772.html

Thanks for your time!

I changed something because it didn’t write on /tmp folder (maybe a SL issue). Using a home subdir works perfectly fine ;) thank you

You could also look at pulling in a weather image by referencing an image from a weather site

About weather, I’m using yahoo feature at the moment.
Any idea how adding yahoo weather images using geektool shell code and/or images?
(Nice template btw)

Once you install it then Geektool should pick it up, you don’t have to do anything special with it.

Hope that helps JeffreyK

Once you download the Lynx browser, is that it? Do I have to do anything with Lynx to let GeekTool recognize Lynx? Or do I just download Lynx, let it sit as just an installed program on my system, and then start using the “Lynx -dump” scripts in GeekTool and all is well?

Also, there are a couple of versions of Lynx on the Lynx site: Do I download the 2MB file (Rev 13) or the 3 MB file (Rev 6)?

Thanks.
