weather panel app can't get weather

Restarting X was just a random thought, probably from my MS Windows
days. Anyway, it sounds like you've identified the problem, no data for
your location or perhaps the data is there and the weather applet can't
access it. Where are you located? I presume that your location is not
listed in the Location tab. Are you located near enough to a location
that is listed for it to be adequate? I would suggest going to the
official web site but I don't know where it is or if it even exists.
Good luck.
