Liferea — GTK desktop news aggregator

Synopsis

liferea [Options]

Description

Liferea (Linux Feed Reader) is an aggregator for online news feeds. It can be used to maintain a list of subscribed feeds, browse and search through their items and displays their contents. Additionally Liferea allows one to sync subscriptions and read headlines with online accounts of Google Reader and TinyTinyRSS.

Dbus Interface

To allow integration with other programs Liferea profives a DBUS interface for automatic creation of new subscriptions. The script liferea-add-feed is a convenient way to use this interface. Just pass a valid feed URL as parameter and the feed will be added to the feed list. You can also pass non-feed URLs to use feed auto discovery. Example:

liferea-add-feed "http://www.newsforge.com/newsforge.rss"

Please note that Liferea needs to be running for liferea-add-feed to work.

Environment

http_proxy
If a proxy is not specified in the Liferea preferences (which uses the proxy settings provided by dconf), then Liferea will use the proxy specified in $http_proxy. $http_proxy should be set to a URI specifying the desired proxy, for example ‘http://proxy.example.com:3128/’.
