I’ve been, over the course of a month or so, trying to add DarkSky to HA. I keep coming back to it as I’m having a bizarre issue. I actually have everything working and showing up in Lovelace except for the icons. I can’t complete this step in the installation instructions:
Download the amcharts icons from https://www.amcharts.com/dl/svg-weather-icons/ and put them in <config-dir>/www/icons/weather_icons. Create the directories if necessary.
You should end up with the following folders: <config-dir>/www/community/lovelace-darksky-card/lovelace-darksky-card.js <config-dir>/www/icons/weather_icons/animated/ <config-dir>/www/icons/weather_icons/static/
I can create any other folder in /www/ except for one named “icons”! I can create a new folder, but the moment I try to rename it “icons,” I get a Windows error, “could no longer find this item.”
However, despite editing lovelace-darksky-card.js to point to the icon directory, the icons don’t show up in Lovelace. I suspect that lovelace-darksky-card.js.gz also needs to be changed, but I think that’s compiled. Ideally, I’d be able to figure out why I can’t create the icons folder so I don’t run into any issues down the line (for plugin updating, for example).

what hassio installation are you under?vm,supervised,OS or docker[/quote]
Argh, sorry, I meant to include that but rushed my post. Supervised HA Core 2021.6.6, running on VM.
you should try with ssh and check folders, files and permissions if needed (ls -l)
In all my attempts to SSH in, I’ve been unable to (via PuTTY), HA VM IP, port 24. I can however use the Terminal & SSH plugin and navigate over to the /www directory in the “web UI.” For whatever reason, the resolution is terrible, but here’s what I’m seeing:
I had this same issue for almost a year and just kept avoiding doing anything that required the folder, thinking that the issue was isolated to my system. I decided it was time and after a few min I found this thread and of course, you had the answer immediately. Just wanted to say a long overdue thank you. You have saved me so much time over the past year. Really I appreciate it, you are the man.
