Imposible to add aplace

delocoyo's picture

I cant find a place in

Juanro49's picture

GPS location doesn't work fine. If I moved to other location, it doesn't updated. Other app, such as Nightly Clock, update location fine

gncobben's picture

Missing my location in openweathermap locations.
It is impossible to select Rotterdam because the “Provincie Zuidholland” is missing from the list for locations in The Netherlands. After using Meecast for many years (from N9 to Xperia10 ;-) it makes me sad.

ade's picture

There are alternative apps like for the Netherlands or you must select other weather sources in MeeCast.
But if you insist on using MeeCast along with openweathermap as a source, Zuid-Holland indeed has been wiped off the map ;-)

64-bit only (Sony Xperia 10 ii and Pinephone); the 32-bit version is great as it is.

Sorry, guys - I messsed up the relative links. I installed 64-bit Sailfish on my Pinephone yesterday and tried to follow my own advice.

This actually works - if you followed my faulty advice use ln -sfn instead of ln -s (-sfn redirects the link, -s tries to create a new one and fails if you donẗ't delete the faulty links with rm):

cd /usr/share/harbour-meecast
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/buttons_icons /usr/share/buttons_icons
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/db /usr/share/db
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/html /usr/share/html
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/iconsets /usr/share/iconsets
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/images /usr/share/images
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/qml /usr/share/qml
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/sources /usr/share/sources
ln -s /usr/share/harbour-meecast/xsd /usr/share/xsd


* * *

You can check if it worked:
ls -l /usr/share | grep meecast

The output should look something like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Jun 27 15:17 buttons_icons -> harbour-meecast/buttons_icons lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jun 27 15:20 db -> harbour-meecast/db
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root 4096 Jun 27 08:07 harbour-meecast
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Jun 27 15:18 html -> harbour-meecast/html
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 Jun 27 15:14 iconsets -> harbour-meecast/iconsets
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Jun 27 15:16 images -> harbour-meecast/images
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Jun 27 15:16 qml -> harbour-meecast/qml
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Jun 27 15:20 sources -> harbour-meecast/sources
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Jun 27 15:19 xsd -> harbour-meecast/xsd

* * * Foreca, FMI and are reliable, OpenWeatherMap isn't.

* * *

This is relevant only to developers:

Changing the path in



to  <base>/usr/share/harbour-meecast</base>

won't help because it gets overwritten almost immediately, and MeeCast won't start if config.xml isn't writable. I believe config.xml is meant to override the default - some users might want to use ~/.local/share/harbour-meecast - not the other way round.

The /usr/share/harbour-meecast/lib directory is referenced in config.xml but missing.

janssoni's picture

I did this but it doesn't seem to work. Not any services can be seen when trying to add location.

Ahti30708's picture

I fixed my post. Sorry it took so long.

kan's picture

ln -s buttons_icons ../

should be 

ln -s ./harbour-meecast/buttons_icons ../

and so on.

delocoyo's picture

How to do that?

ninepine's picture

Thanks for providing a 64 bit version but no weather sources are available. "Select the weather source" is shown but no options to select one.

TMavica's picture

Same issue

vasvlad's picture


I have no any free time.  Could you please show me a link on how to install 64-bit SailfishOS in an emulator to investigate this issue.



delocoyo's picture

Hei. Could be check out meecast and update? It will so appreciated. I have been working it around but still doesnt get to get places from yr, openweather. Using 4.2 in a X10 II

TMavica's picture

Sorry i dont know, but there is some info in forum

levone1's picture

Just me, or does neither the lock screen nor the events widget work on 4.0? They were both working for me until update...

TMavica's picture

Can u build a 64 bit package?

vasvlad's picture

Done. Try it.

TMavica's picture

I cant see any source in settings, the page is dark, but other page is not

vasvlad's picture

I'll try to do it.

miqu's picture

Hey thanks for this nice app. I would love to ask to add wind information on the hourly screens. Speed and direction arrow would suffise. The wind information is available but not shown. Its used in daily weather anyhow.

I might even be able to help with a PR if you guide me to the right direction in the source.

vasvlad's picture

Hi. Can your draw the design of this page?

Hello! Thanks for a great app! One thing about the MeeCast icon set: a cloud with 3 drops is rain, but a cloud with 5 drops is showers/ light rain? Isnt the icon with 5 drops missing a sun behind?

It seems the icon for heavy rain (5drops) is the same used for rain showers (that would in theory need a sun behind as most other icon set (eg glance) do in the app...

vasvlad's picture


The icon is selected using the number (N) from the weather forecast data.  See it



yusssufff's picture

thanks for the link!
Well the number 12 Heavy Rain (5 drops) is same with number 39 Scattered rain...
I think number 39 better be with a sun behind...
Exactly same issue for Scattered snow (41) better have sun behind...

glanternier's picture

Hello, would you be able to add maritime weather network among the sources such as Meteo Marine for example?

vasvlad's picture


I don't have any free time for it. :(

skyjumper's picture

Hi Vlad,

Sorry to say this is still happening. Right now it's Thursday morning 3/9/2020 in Melb Australia, but the app is still showing data for Wednesday. The current observations match real time.

Can you have a look at it? I am using Bureau of Meterology data (BOM).

vasvlad's picture


I just checked  this issue and can't confirm it.
