Lightread: RSS news client for Ubuntu


Found Lightread in the Synaptic suggestions today after a repo update. Frankly speaking, I haven’t come across such a cool GUI-based RSS news reader on Linux before. It works offline as well. It uses the yelp library in the background, the same library used to show help pages. The indicator icon shows the unread count in Unity launcher. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my news reader for a while.

To install on Ubuntu:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cooperjona/lightread
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install lightread
