Could you please update oxygenate to work with thunderbird 24? - Oct 11 2013
Thanks for your latest fixes, now nearly all my issues are fixed, except one:

go to menu->extras->filter, click "add" and focus the text-field for a the filter rule. it is white text on white background, when focused. Could you please fix that? - Mar 26 2012

I really wish these improvements:

- when marking all feeds as read (per shortcut), currently the current opened feed and article are deselected (complete view is resetted), showing a blank page: you wrote it is by design. why? its really annoying.

- refreshing all feeds, makes the gui unresponsive (~ freeze). it would be nice, if that could be done in background.

- add shortkey-configuration-option for backward/forward-actions in internal browser

- differentiate between "unread" and "new" (different colors?)

- when I define to display the complete webpage for a folder of feeds, it would be nice, if the feeds in that folder could adapt this setting, at least optionally.

thanks - Oct 04 2013
Sometimes quiterss crashes on loading some websites in internal browser (seems to relate to webkit), should I send you the urls, where it crashes? (the websites crash reproducable).

And it would be nice to have shortcuts for "back" and "forward" in the internal browser (like ALT+left/right) - Apr 16 2013
that only works for "un-minimize" but not for "minimize". so when clicking on the icon quiterss show, when it was minimized. but when it is shown, and then I click on the icon, it is NOT minimized again (I have to click on the close-icon of the window). - Apr 08 2013
A single click restores quiterss from minimized system-tray-icon. But then, a second click on that icon should minimize quiterss again. so clicking should toggle the minimized state. - Apr 08 2013
sorry, instead of

- left-click on a feed (option-menu) should show an option "copy link address"

I meant

- right-click on an article-link.... - Apr 06 2013
After using quiterss some weeks, I still found some possible improvements:

- when configured with system-tray icon, and 1-click to show from system-tray-icon, another click should minimize again

- when marking all feeds as read (per shortcut), currently the current opened feed and article are deselected (complete view is resetted), showing a blank page

- left-click on a feed (option-menu) should show an option "copy link address"

- the internal browser is a little bit slow loading pages, perhaps you could speed it up?

- in the shortcut-configuration view there should be a "live-filter" for filtering the shortcuts

- Apr 06 2013
After some time I installed the newest version of quiterss and I am very impressed!

You succeeded in making me switch from akregator to quiterss.

Thanks for this wonderfull piece of software. - Mar 30 2013
thanks. this feed does not work:,5291,,00.xml

(very popular german online news portal) - Mar 26 2012
Thank you for this great piece of software. I would switch from akregator, if you would add:

a) feed-hierarchies (tree structure on the left), and be able to refresh a subtree
b) shortkey configuration
c) an option to open the webpage immediatly in internal browser (now I have to double click) - Mar 21 2012

It would be very nice to be able to define parameters of cdparanoia like "-Y" or "-Z". It is so terrible slow for me. - Aug 15 2013
In settings I activated all checkboxes, to remember my previous settings, but my settings are not restored at restart:

I choosed in detail-view "enter bitrate" with "192kbps". but always quality "middle" is selected, so I have modify select box every time. - Dec 04 2010
When ripping with cdparanoia I don't get a progress bar for the tracks. Is it not possible with that library?

And are you making progress with the kde4 version? SoundKonverter is really the best konverter&ripper on linux (and I tried most). - Feb 26 2010
I succeeded in building 1.0 alpha

Would be nice, when you could use/provide cmake-"find"-files for cdparanoia and taglib. the lib dir was hardcoded in cmakelists, but I had to change it to lib64 for me. also nice would be included cpack in cmakelists for more easy rpm/deb building.

after installing I had no backends in gui.

here are my installed files:

I activated the option to switch off the touchpad temporarily when typing (for 0.5 seconds). everytime I type a notification is shown, and everytime stop another. "the touchpad is switched on,the user is typing"...

It would be nice, if the notifications could be turned off. - Feb 13 2011
thanks for your wonderfull app. please try to get this into official kde4 realease!

I also encountered a few very nice synaptics options which I would like to get integrated:


These allow very easy "tap and drag" operations over longer distances (when the touchpad space is not big enough for the drag).

also nice would be options for disabling touchpad when another mouse is plugged.

for me the option to disable touchpad while keyboad is in use is greyed out. and the tapping timings/pts seem to have no influence. - Dec 26 2009

thanks for this great tool.

It would be nice, if there would be an option, to watch the clipboard automatically, and translate new clipboard-content automatically, and then show it (reasonable count of results) in a tooltip right at mouse-position!

For longer texts, pressing a complicated shortcut and focussing and defocussing the kding window is too intrusive. - Sep 15 2010

no, I think it will not. - May 28 2010
nice to hear you like it. for me it serves its purpose. I would be glad, if someone likes to take over this project. There is already a new version of libircclient-qt. some donations could also motivate me to implement some new features. - May 20 2010
from which repository did you install kopete? and from where libircclient-qt? If all other fails, you have to compile it by yourself. - May 08 2010
I have found a bug in kopete, which make this plugin always connect without password. I hope this will be fixed soon, so that the password from configuration will be used. - Mar 05 2010
have to correct myself:

"do you have installed kopete in /usr/local? if not you should configure cmake to install it in /usr (run ccmake)"


"do you have installed kopete in /usr/local? if not you should configure cmake to install the irc-plugin in /usr (run ccmake)" - Jan 18 2010
yes, change "/usr/local" to "/usr" in ccmake. then "generate" the makefiles. then do "make". then

a) sudo make install

or (if you are able to install DEB packages):

b) cpack -G DEB (then a deb package should be created, which you should be able to install with your distributions package tools) - Jan 17 2010

seems to be a problem with the ircclient-lib dependency. try my new package. - Oct 15 2009
You have to adapt the CMakeLists.txt file

replace the line


with your ircclient-qt directory.

someone seems to have removed the time display ON the applet, but you can check the second checkbox in the options, to have it displayed there. If someone has two batteries and is willing to do some testing for me, I could perhaps make it work without that option, too.

Thanks for your work. I replaced my notifications with colibri and love these notifications much more!

Only problem was the install: I generated a RPM with CPACK, but that conflicted against another packacke because of the dbus-service-file. Is there a possible way (for packagers) to generate packages, that do not conflict with the present service-file?

By the way: I think developers on kde-apps should by default include CPACK-code like


into their CMakeLists.txt, and drop a few lines describing how easy to create a package after compiling, like "cpack -G RPM" - Feb 17 2010

I found a solution, too:

I installed tweak. I only changed the option "allow access keys" to off.

Bad results:

Kicker does not start anymore at kde-startup (but I can start it manually). I don't know why. The kicker-config-files are not responsible for that. Where do I have to search?

Another problem: tweak changed the settings for kdm: in the shutdown-dialog I had not the right anymore to shutdown. Autologin in kdm also did not work anymore. I had to reconfigure it.
