A while ago i wrote a news-scrolling program for windows that worked exactly like the good old KNewsTicker on linux.
2008 i switched completely to linux and now i wanted also to step up to kde4. The only thing missing was the KNewsticker, which was discarded from kde4.2. The old Kde4.1 KNewsticker was unusable.
So i decided to get my beloved newsticker back on linux and wrote the NetNewsTicker for KDE 4.2.
I heavily used parts of the KNewsticker and rewrote the scrolling view and added some features i wanted to have.
I would like to share my work with anyone that also is longing for the good old KNewsTicker.
I prepackaged a deb file for kubuntu 9.04.
If you like to build it from source, invoke the following (after unpacking)
$>cd build
$>sudo make install


Initial version 0.5 uploaded
Fixed cmakelists.txt to correctly link on 64-bit systems
Changed source code to version 0.5-1 that fixes a bug in the feed updating.
Changed deb package for Jaunty to version .6 which fixes a bug in the size behaviour. It's now ready to be used on KDE 4.3 also.

Thanks for releasing this widget. It is the only one in it's class now for Linux afaict.

Any ideas on how to modify the width of the widget?

Hey, I'm looking for a horizontal feed ticker. Could I see a screen shot of this program? And maybe a 64-bit binary too, the i386 one is incompatible with my Kunbuntu.

Very nice that someone has the mercy to make this desperately needed applet.
But: is it really supposed to consume about 50% processing power on a 2600MHz Pentium for scrolling?

Updates per second: 3
Pixels per update: 8

More than that doesn't really make sense with a ticker like this one. That will lower your CPU usage dramatically, because you seem to have driver issues.

Great job! I've been looking for plasmoid like that for ages!;) thank you :)

ps: there're invalid download links, but i've quickly found valid one: http://netnewsticker.org/download/?lang=en

ps2: there's probably some bug on kde 4.8.0 cause I can't change colour text:/

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
