Well, for a perfect work the plugin should be a python file called loader (name is not really importat, but if you don't use it you have to change somethings).
Loader is a file that use everything you want to write a file called newstemp whith this sintax:
Headline
Link
Headline
Link
...
...
Then, copy the file called getNews from anyone of the other plugins to your new plugin. Add a logo.png minilogo.png and minilogo10.png. If you still have a problem with the program launch PNM from a xterm (konsole) after turning on the debug variable. - Jun 19 2003

If have detected the bug, it won't be hard to repare, next version will work. But now, to fix it, go to your newsreader dir and exec:

./bin/installnews news1 $PWD

and restart newsreader, this will fix the bad configuration(You will see a symlink called "news" in the newsreader dir, be sure that after executing that command it won't be broken - May 28 2003

I had some problems since last updated, so the file you donwload was the 0.1 version. I have fixed it, you have to download newsreader-0.2.tgz for newsreader with all news features, like new plugins, Fast Tab switch, Color & Shadow text change... - May 19 2003

I will try to explain how does it exactly work.
The theme never connect to the internet, it takes the news from the file ./news/news.
This file has text with the format:
HeadLine
Link
HeadLine
...
If you only get white lines it means that the theme can't find this file. The theme searchs for ./news/news, so its very important to launch the theme from it own dir. Run "superkaramba ./newsreader.theme" and wait 3 o 4 secons while it charges. If you still have problems mail me and I try to help you. - May 19 2003

No, you don't need karamba, this theme use superkaramba, so you must launch it trough last one. - May 19 2003

The installnews script is inside the ./bin directory. The themes ask for ./bin/installnews, so its very important to launch the theme from it dir. I explain, if you untgz the file in $HOME/karamba/newsreader you HAVE to change firs to that dir and then exec karamba newsreader.theme
I have just released version 0.2, try it - May 18 2003

For those who have downloaded newsreader, tell them that the project is not stopped and new update will be released soon.
This update will include more plugins (20 plugins in total), new internal architecture that will allow newsreader to use more powerful plugins (some of this plugins will be included in 0.2, such as mailreader (reads local inbox) or DiskUsage (shows monted devices information). A new skin will be released too, this skin will be made in python, and will include fast tab switch with less resources. I have opened a sourceforge page for the proyect, and the cvs server will be up soon.

For gnome users, I will try to do a implementation of newsreader for this desktop, like gdeskcal - May 12 2003

Don't worry, it is not a really problem, just a warning. It says you that you aren't running a newsreader theme designed for Superkaramba. In the main dir of newsreader exist a symlink to ./themes/"active_theme"/newsreader.py
If the theme hasn't a python module the symlink is broken, but program should work perfectly. I forgot to add this to the README, I will do it now. Thanks for the comment - May 02 2003
