View Full Version : [ubuntu] Evolution RSS Plugin Reader

November 2nd, 2009, 05:03 PM
Hi all

I have just upgraded to Karmic and I am enjoying it quite alot! Unfortunately, there is one thing that is really bothering me and maybe someone could help me here.

I am running Evolution 2.28.1 with Evolution RSS Reader plugin 0.1.4 (in the Karmic repositories). I cant seem to get all my RSS feeds into Evolution? I can only get these two (1 (http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/rss/new/mit-newcourses.xml),2 (http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/rss/new/mit-newcourses-6.xml)) for some odd reason?

I read here (http://gnome.eu.org/evo/index.php/Evolution_RSS_Reader_Plugin) that there is a patch (http://gnome.eu.org/patches/evolution-rss-0.1.4-recv-feeds.patch) which should allow the reception of rss feeds in Evolution versions after 2.28.

Excuse my ignorance but I am not too sure on how to apply this patch. I did some reading and found this post (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=417658). But it does not say where the directory is to paste the actual patch?? It just says paste it into "evolution-rss-0.0.1 directory", but I am not sure where this is?

Please excuse my newbie-ness here and help me out. I have been using Ubuntu since Jaunty and I am really enjoying it so far.

Thanking you in advance.
