View Full Version : [ubuntu] Simple RSS-Reader with notification-OSD support

June 1st, 2010, 10:31 PM

i'm looking for a simple RSS feed reader, witch shows new news-items through the notification OSD.

I found this program: https://launchpad.net/rssn
But it doesn't work for me - perhaps it's because i'm connected through a proxy.
Liferea is great, but i'm looking for a program that shows the content (i.e. feed, item-title) of the feed in the OSD, not only the number of unread items (as Liferea does).

You could try RSS-aware: http://freelanzer.com/rss-aware/index.html It displays the titles of the news, but lacks much of the functionality of Liferea. That's why I use the two programs simultaneously: RSS-aware to display the OSD notifications and Liferea to read the feeds.
