Description:

This theme can fetch news in rdf format from any website and put in a panel in your desktop. You can also set your favorite image on top. When you click over a new, konqueror opens its url. If you click over the image, the site is opened. Suggestions, comments and bug reports are welcome.

Hi, I was wondering if you could indicate a place where one can find a list of rdfs available on the net, besides the ones you included in the text file. All those are mostly technical or alternative sites. What about New York Times or Washington post or USA today?

Thanks!

I have the same problem. I have the rdf.pl in the correct directory, I've even tried copying it to every sub-directory in the theme just to make sure it was where it needed to be. I get this problem with almost every news theme I try, except for Glas.

I think you haven't read README. You should do that, it explains news_panel usage :)

I got the same error. For me, the problem was that rdf.pl is not in the path. Changing line 174 in news_panel.py to read
texto = commands.getoutput("./rdf.pl " + url)

worked for me.

The rdf.pl script is generally great...I built a reader for my favorite news site, The Register (http://theregister.co.uk) with it. The only other thing needed is a list of RSS feeds...and a very good list can be found here:

I can post the Register reader if anyone wants it,but you can add a new URL to news.theme faster than you could download and untar my file, frankly.
