Weather does not find Duisburg

I have installed weather on my librem5. But it does not find Duisburg in Germany, which is a rather big city. Any ideas?

You’ll probably have to go with Essen.

Thank you. It did find Kalkum, which is in the vicinity of Duisburg.

Odd that Duisburg isn’t there, but at least you have the nearby cities.

It finds it, you will need a bit of patience: write Duisburg in the search box, then delete a couple of characters with backspace and write them again … while doing this nonsense a list of four Duisburg will appear :slightly_smiling_face:


five, actually!


Funny! I tried that at first and it wasn’t working. Guess I didn’t wait long enough. :laughing:

Maybe Duisburg is like Bielefeld and does not really exist ?!


I’ve never been in either “place”, you?

Nope. But as I was told Germans just create a rumor, that there is a city called Bielefeld. So you really can not go there, because it does not really exist.

Although there is no Duisburg, I only dream that I live there, today it has been found.

In my case it finds my location although I am on an island and not in a big city. It gives current conditions and then it says:

“Forecast not available”

Does anyone know why this? Is it the app that fails or the data it gets is not complete?

That’s a known bug that started a couple of weeks ago. And I think it’s probably not a malfunction specific to the L5, but to Weather itself.

Edit: Just confirmed… also happens on my Linux Mint machine, and I see comments in the software manager that others are seeing that error.

Thanks @amarok So this will be corrected as a bug sooner or later by the application.
