I looked at Cairo a few weeks ago, but I've now really settled on what is pretty much stock KDE 4.8.5, but with the Lancelot launcher rather than the default Kickoff. And I use LXDE, when I want a quick start-up for when I'm teaching in the classroom.

Saw the desktop one, but can't see it under the browser or whatever else might be running. I'm currently using what is basically a netbook, with a 10 inch screen.

I doesn't really matter, I was just was curious if a weather widget existed would work in the standard KDE taskbar. There is one, but it seems to have the same broken dependency issue as that Nixie tube clock widget you posted about last month Nick. Presumably they require someone with a knowledge of Python and KDE development to go in there and fix them. I usually look at my phone's screen for the weather.
