liferea feed reader and rss feeds in firefox

May 20th, 2007 by

I use liferea as an rss feed reader – and until today, had not figured out how to add the rss feeds automatically to liferea.

It turns out to be rather simple, as liferea provides a DBUS interface script to add feeds automatically. From firefox, click on the RSS icon (orange icon) that appears in the address bar. A page will load with a yellow header from which you select a number of predefined applications (or webservices).

Select ‘Choose Application‘ from the ‘Subscribe to this feed’ drop down. In the file locater that appears, enter ‘/usr/bin/liferea-add-feed‘.

If you select the button that reads ‘Always use liferea-add-feed’ – anytime you click on the rss feed icon – that feed will automatically be added to liferea.
