I am using the new release of Sailfish OS. On the lock screen I can see the weather information. But do not need it. How can I change it?

I'm searching for that too, where to choose whether I want to show the weather or not: "Also, you can choose to see the current weather information on the Lock screen." (blog.jolla.com). In next release, perhaps? :)

A workaround rather than a concrete answer, but an answer nonetheless;

You'd need to edit the appropriate file. This means using terminal. If you are comfortable with using terminal, edit the following file in;


Add this simple line of code; visible: false to line 7, so it looks like this;

import QtQuick 2.0
import Sailfish.Silica 1.0
import Sailfish.Weather 1.0

Row {
    id: root
    visible: false     `<---------adding the line of code here`

    property alias weather: savedWeathersModel.currentWeather
    property alias autoRefresh: savedWeathersModel.autoRefresh
    property alias active: weatherModel.active
    property alias temperatureFont: temperatureLabel.font`

Save the changes and restart lipstick with systemctl --user restart lipstick.service, the weather 'indicator' should now not be visible. Hope this helps.

If not comfortable editing with vi, I use tIde root from openrepos... It's pretty slow on anything but small files, but works well...link text

@Paraiso - no need to add any code, just remove one of the exclamation marks where it says; visible: !!weather and the widget is gone.

It would be great if an option would be part of one if the next releases.
