Newsbeuter is an RSS feed reader that is extremely fast becuase it runs from the terminal (no pictures). It was compiled in Slacko 5.3.3. To make it easier, I've added an icon and made a list of some RSS feeds to get you started.

It requires STFL as a runtime dependency:

I've modified the pet and added a config file for Newsbeuter.

The main changes in this pet include:
- newsbeuter will launch in LXTerminal, if it is found
- In an article; when you hit the "o" key, the defaultbrowser will open the full article
- all URLs will auto-refresh upon startup

Hi Tman,

Thank you. A most useful and flexible addition, and as you said "fast".
When I first tried it, it was so fast that I didn't realise it had worked and the display had updated.

My regards
