I don't use the default lcd-weather plasmoid so won't offer any
suggestions or theories on it, but I do have installed and on my desktop,
kde-misc/yawp (yet another weather plasmoid), and in the system tray, I
have "Weather Forcast" activated (system tray context menu, system tray
settings, display icon, unlock widgets if necessary, extra items, select
weather forcast, after which you can context-click it to configure).
yawp appears as a system tray optional item as well, but it doesn't work
well with vertically arranged systrays such as mine, so it's disabled
there in favor of weather forcast, with yawp as a desktop plasmoid instead.
The location selection and general functionality of both of those work. I
know as I'm using them. (Gentoo/~amd64 no-multilib with kde 4.6.2 and
including the kde overlay, tho yawp's in the main tree and I /think/
weather forcast is default.) So if you can't get the LCD weather plasmoid
to work, there's two options that I /do/ know work, here on Gentoo. =:^)
