        foreach (@fctfile) {
            if ( m{\s*aria-label="The forecast for (.*?) is (.*?). High of (.*?)° and low of (.*?)°.">.*} ) {

  2. Hi,Param

    Conkywx cannot be executed(^^;

    The following message appeared on the console.

    Donald@Donald:~$ /usr/share/conkywx/
    Donald@Donald:~$ Conky: desktop window (24c) is root window
    Conky: window type - normal
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x3e00002)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer

    Downloading main data file...

    Weather update download completed.
    Conkywx program execution completed in: 0m4.963s
    Error parsing time at /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/perl/5.20/Time/ line 469.

    This problem occures Fedora 21 64bit and Ubuntu 14.10 64bit.

    Conkywx moves normally mysteriously in ArchLinux.

    Could you please advise me about the following problem?

    Thanks and Best Regards!
