    Anyone got suggestions for X newsreader?


    I'm looking for a newsreader. i used to use tb but it's kind of plain & boring. I use evolution for email now, but i don't see newsgroup capabilities. I also installled nn but doesn't look like i runs under X. Oh yes, one more thing, i don't want a KDE component, as i'm running a GNU exclusive GNOME desktop. Know of any cool one's for X?

    Firefox has something for RSS and so does Thunderbird.

    And what's wrong with KDE/Qt?

    looks interesting i will try it out, thanks for the suggestion. i forgot to mention though, if possible, i would like something that's part of the Debian Sarge distribution, since i can simply apt-get it instead of taking a trip down dependancy lane

    and so does Thunderbird.
    like i said, i used thunderbird before, but i wanna try something else.
    And what's wrong with KDE/Qt?
    Like i said again, i want to stick with my GNU theme. Don't misunderstand, i've got no beef against KDE stuff, i have KDE running on my other internet PC, my laptop, and also on my FreeBSD Machine.

    So KDE fans, please don't start flaming me

    Hi, GNU_man

    I'm curious to know what you wound up going with?

    Thanks!

    Okay, thanks for the reply. I've not tried pan, so maybe I'll check it out.
