This is usually a two part solution. NOTE: I am using Slackware 12.0 but kde
is kde so most everything should be in the same place(s).
Part 1. Add your location to the /usr/share/apps/kweatherservice file using
your favorite text editor. VI works just fine.
Most of the information is self explanatory if you use another (MAJOR)
location as a pattern. I say major since they have most of the fields filled
in. If you do not have the information for a given field just leave it
blank. Be sure to enter a semicolon to indicate the end of the empty field.
In your case Part 1 is not necessary since Haifa is already present.
Part 2. Add your location to the /usr/share/apps/kweatherservice file using
your favorite text editor.
Find your Country, add a line at the end of the entries for your country and
add your location. In your case in my file which has 3 entries for Israel, I
would add "loc3=Haifa LLHA ------ ---' without the quotes of course.
save the file and exit.
Now when you go to your kweather icon on the Desktop/in the applet tray, when
you click on configure KWeather, select the Weather Service Icon, then your
Country in the Middle East drop down, Haifa should be present.
