I suggest you try Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.  That is working fine for me with the 9th February build and WD runs happily with the default Unity desktop.

I also have a VNC server installed which uses the XFCE desktop.  WD crashes if I try to change any settings under XFCE, but Brian has written a WD Client which allows remote viewing of the main screen using XFCE.

No way... I tried in /home/Documents/wdisplay,
I did mean for you to run it from there
you can install and run it from any where
but that is where WD tries to save its data and settings files
what shows in the file
location.txt

That's the clue... it contains /root/Documents/wdisplay/ and I've changed that path but when WD starts it changed to the default path again so I've created /root/Documents/wdisplay directory and it worked

Thanks for the help and I hope this will help another newbie in Linux like me  :wink:

Thank you for your suggestion but it was sounding strange to me that WD was not working neither latest Ubuntu 17.10 nor Debian 9 Stretch. Finally it was a location issue with ini files.

Hi
I had the same problem but found that if you just double clicked the 'weatherdisplay' icon it starts OK.
I had it running an old ws2307 that only gave me indoor and outdoor temps and humidity.
hope this helps

as long as the /home/Documents/wdisplay/
folder and the settings files have the right privaledges it should be OK

That's what I found out today ...

Mint19.1 seems to have a problem with symlinks ... I had to restart rigel last night only to find out after work today that Weatherdisplay wasn't working anymore, because the symlink to Dokumente/wdisplay was gone.

Hi I am running WD on Debian 9 and had the same problem as you, for some reason it cannot be opened using sudo.
Try clicking on the weatherdisplay icon in the WD folder , It works for me

As soon as the symlink to "Documents/wdisplay" was gone, WD stopped working for good. I did set up Documents/wdisplay as a copy of Dokumente/wdisplay now ... that worked for me.
