I removed the old files using the instructions in
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=878457

then plasmapkg command worked.
the previous idea of creating a new user account came from here:

http://code.google.com/p/gmail-plasmoid/issues/detail?id=8

Thanks rangalo for your help ... I stay in canada and will inform you if the plasmoid runs out of icons in the winter!

I created a new user account. That solved the plasmapkg problem. I don't know how it solves the problem but I got this idea after some googling.

Then I manually downloaded your updated plasmoid and installed via the plasmapkg command and then created .weather.cfg manually. Now it remembers my location even after startup. So the problem is solved... but I guess I have to move my files from the other account :)

I did. Here is the result:
~$ plasmapkg -r plasma_pyweather
Plugin plasma_pyweather is not installed.

then tried reinstalling:

$ plasmapkg -i 110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid
Installation of /home/username/110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid failed.

the command ~$ plasmapkg --list shows the plasmoids. I tried to remove rssnow to see if the removal command works or not:

~$ plasmapkg -r rssnow
Removal of rssnow failed.

So is it a problem with the plasmapkg not working on my machine?

Thanks

then

~$ apt-cache search plasmapkg

but it returned nothing - Aug 22 2009

I saved that file on desktop. The command lines and results are as follows:

~$ cd Desktop
~/Desktop$

~/Desktop$ plasmapkg -i 110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid

Installation of /home/username/Desktop/110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid failed.

I also tried the sudo

~/Desktop$ sudo plasmapkg -i 110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid

to get

Error: "/var/tmp/kdecache-username" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Error: "/tmp/kde-username" is owned by uid 1000 instead of uid 0.
Installation of /home/username/Desktop/110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid failed.

then, according to
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1190829

problem may be due to plasmapkg:

~/Desktop$ plasmapkg
plasmapkg: One of install, remove, upgrade or list is required.
plasmapkg: Use --help to get a list of available command line options.

Installation of /home/username/110137-plasma_pyweather.plasmoid failed

same with the command

I created the file as you said and restarted. But still it shows the weather of Munich Germany. The file does not get deleted with startup. I may be wrong, but my guess is somehow the machine does not see the config files while startup. I had a similar experience before with a .fonts.conf file which still doesnt work.

The seamless theme is working fine now.

I looked into my home folder but there is no .weather.cfg file even just after changing the weather settings.

about seamless: as instructed, I copied the seamless folder in /.kde/share/apps/desktoptheme/ (i have .kde in my home folder and not .kde4), and restarted. But it didnt work. Do I have to include it in startup option somehow?

I am using kubuntu-desktop on ubuntu, macbook machine.

Thank you for your time. - Aug 20 2009

Hi,
this is a great plasmoid indeed. However, would it be possible for you to give me a step-by-step guide on how to save the config file. Everytime I login, I get the weather for Munich, Germany.
Also how did you get the transluscent background?
