@kiankasad sorry for the late reply. I've create a new issue to track this plugin installation issue Pls note that the plugins can be added to the ~/.config/safeeyes/plugin folder. For more details, see

@gobinath I forgot that the weather plugin was a third-party one that I installed manually. Your logic makes total sense, since the plugin isn't part of the safeeyes package.

What do you think of creating a safeeyes-plugin-weather package that installs the plugin into /usr/lib/python3.9/site-packages/safeeyes/plugins/weather/? Is that a bad idea since we shouldn't be touching the site-packages/safeeyes/ directory since it's not technically part of the safeeyes python module?

@kiankasad dependencies of third party plugins will not be added to the Safe Eyes installation package. Though we have only two plugins at the moment (weather and zoom), if the number of plugins grow, we may need to list a lot of optional dependencies here. At the moment, third party dependencies have to be installed manually and I have a plan to automate this process. By that time, we can have an option to install the dependencies automatically.

Would you mind adding python-pyowm to the optional dependencies list? It's required for the Weather plugin.

@piotrv: Fixed with python-croniter 1.0.5-2.

Settings windows doesn't popup if optional python-croniter 1.0.5-1 has been installed

It seems it lost its transparency on my Xfce desktop. I wonder if anyone else has the same problem? Or is it Xfce's fault? They had a big update recently that broke things.

@hexchain: See the open issue and here for the autostart entry.

It seems that the .desktop file and the xdg autostart entry are gone.

This now requires python-croniter.
