gnome evolution logoLuci Langa’s Evolution RSS Reader Plugin enables support for feeds in the Gnome Evolution mail reader.The newest version (0.0.6) of this plugin has the following changes against previous ones…

Support for feeds enclosures. Support for renaming folders and the main folder (News&Blogs). Support for adding SSL feeds. This release will make a channel name unique in case of duplicate channel names. Crashing when the evolution-rss plugin is disabled has been fixed. Feed IDs have been moved from crc32 to md5. Feeds setup has been moved to gconf. This release supports Evolution’s network hooks. HTML entities in the channel name and article title are decoded.

To install this plugin in Ubuntu, make sure that you have the following packages installed by apt-get or aptitude:


If they aren’t installed, you know what to do ;)

sudo apt-get install automake evolution-dev libglib2.0-dev intltool libtool evolution-data-server-dev libcurl3 libcurl3-dev libsoup2.2-8 libsoup2.2-dev build-essential firefox-dev build-essential -y

Fedora users should run:

sudo yum install automake evolution-devel evolution-data-server-devel glib2-devel libsoup-devel intltool libtool firefox-devel -y

Then run:
cd /path/to/extracted/directory
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install

and add RSS feeds in Edit -> Preferences…

I recommend to add Linux Screw RSS feed first ;)

    I don't know if this plugin will make me abandon liferea, but I would definitely like managing my feed items at the comfort of my email client. I was not aware of its existence and I think I'll take this plugin for a test drive soon. Things look great in the provided screenshot.

    Thanks :)

    Hi there! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!| tickets air flight

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, awesome blog!

    And also supports downloading videos from many streaming video sites.
    In case your personal computer lets the Autoplay
    function, there'll be the Autoplay screen and then select “Open folder to view files". By being in a mastermind group you have in effect an accountability manager.
