Just a thought kalwisti - have you tried restarting your desktop?
Thank you for the suggestion. I followed your tip, but the weather widget is still significantly larger than before the update.
: When the update first completed, Synaptic had a message prompting me to open a Konsole terminal as root user, and type the command "init 6
". I followed this instruction exactly, and it did a complete reboot of my PC).
As I mentioned before, this is a minor annoyance. And if I decide to remove the widget, I can still easily get current weather information from the Forecastfox add-on I've installed in Firefox . . .
Thanks again for trying to lend a hand.
