Evolution RSS Reader Plugin

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:

automake

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

Then run:
cd /path/to/extracted/directory

and add RSS feeds in Edit -> Preferences…
