A quick collection of my favorite RSS feed reader applications for Ubuntu desktop. Even though it is totally out of place in my Gnome desktop, Akregator is my favorite among the lot. But after exploring a bit further, I found feed readers like Yarssr really good and easy to use. So here is my list of favorite 4 feed reader applications for Ubuntu.
Akregator RSS Feed Reader For Linux
- Akregator is my favorite rss feed reader app for Ubuntu. The only drawback is that, it is a qt based application and it fits better with KDE interface. But still a worthy candidate to become your default desktop feed reader.
- It is available in Ubuntu repositories by default and you can install the app either directly from Ubuntu Software Center or you could use the following command.
sudo apt-get install akregator
Yarssr RSS Feed Reader For Linux
- Yarssr or 'yet another rss reader' is a quick little feed reader app for Ubuntu. It is available in Ubuntu repositories and and it easy to install and configure.
- In the Browser Command field at the bottom, you can change it to your favorite browser. In my case, it's Chromium and I have changed it to chromium-browser.
- You can install Yarssr directly from Ubuntu Software Center or you could use the following command.
sudo apt-get install yarssr
Liferea Feed Reader For Linux
- Liferea or Linux feed reader is a simple news aggregation app for Linux. It supports the major feed formats including RSS/RDF and Atom and can import and export subscription lists in OPML format.
- Liferea is intended to be a fast, easy to use, and easy to install news aggregator for GTK+ that can be used with the GNOME desktop.
sudo apt-get install liferea
Blam Feed Reader For Linux
- Blam is simple and it integrates well with your desktop. Blam is comparatively newer and is a bit rough around the edges. Still it does what it is intended for.
