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.

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:/

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
