MWI won't run anymore on Ubuntu 12.04, either from the Dash or the terminal.
Could you take a look at this?

Thanks in advance.

You provide a wrong latitude and a wrong longitude.The program can not found your location ,city,coutry etc. All the information is blanck .So the MWI won't display. Maybe you have a wrong config file.Try to delete the ~/.config/my-weather-indicator/my-weather-indicator.conf,after that to restart your program.

Hello wangyan and thank you for your prompt response.
This absolutely did the trick.
No idea how I got to to this point, though, since it was working before.
Anyhow, thanks again :-)

When the program first starts or it doesn,t have config file, it will present the preference interface to get your location.The programe must have a way to get your location automaticly because when i first start the program the location is ok( just name is not coincident) ,i guess the program gets your location from your ip adress . The weather service world weater online can get your locations information from your IP,such as city ,country,latitude, longitude an so on.
