I found out how to install it in another question: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/indicator-weather/+question/223343

But when I run indicator-weather I get the following error:

ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for GConf
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/indicator-weather", line 58, in <module>
    from indicator_weather.helpers import *
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/indicator_weather/helpers.py", line 34, in <module>
    from gi.repository import GConf
ImportError: cannot import name GConf

Do I need to make a bug report for this?

Hi, this is a dependency problem, it requires the package gir1.2-gconf2.0 The dependencies have been fixed in the latest version, but you probably need to install that package manually for now

Hi Joshua,

Thanks, this solved my problem, but created the next...

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/indicator-weather", line 2574, in <module>
    wi = indicator_weather()
  File "/usr/local/bin/indicator-weather", line 1313, in __init__
    self.settings.check_autostart()
  File "/usr/local/bin/indicator-weather", line 175, in check_autostart
    os.symlink(desktop_file_path, autostart_path)
OSError: [Errno 17] File exists

I followed the error and found out that .config/autostart/indicator-weather.desktop pointed to /usr/share/applications/indicator-weather.desktop which doesn't exist any more.
I removed the autostart file and ran indicator-weather again and now I get this error:

(indicator-weather:3433): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: Settings schema 'apps.indicators.weather' is not installed
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Probably an easy fix, but with this one I couldn't find the source of the problem...

I see here (https://launchpad.net/~weather-indicator-team/+archive/ppa) that the package was build, so I installed it with apt-get...
Problem solved!!! :-)

Did this override the tar.gz install?
I tried to remove that one first, but there was no remove command in the package.

Thanks Joshua Tasker, that solved my question.

It's the same contents as the tar.gz install, it just runs setup.py automatically. Also, the gsettings schema error meant you needed to copy the schema file to the proper directory and recompile your schemes for gsettings; this is all done automatically when you install it via the package.
