Description gerion 2015-10-12 17:57:58 UTC
There is a new application for RSS-feeds, Feedreader.

It would be nice, if you provide an ebuild.

Here is the website:

There are already Arch packages and some other distrubtions:

The code is on launchpad:

Hello gerion, it seems like a nice application. I've checked the arch package, the building/installation doesn't look that complicated. Maybe try creating an ebuild an attach it here?

Here's quick-and-dirty ebuild, just put together something which works on my system (x86), there's likely missing some deps or useflags for deps.

Feel free to try it.

Thanks for the ebuild. 

The "work" dir where portage unpacks the package is at ${WORKDIR}, you can replace these: 

You can replace:
emake DESTDIR="${D}" install
just with "default", because that's what normally src_install() does.

Updated ebuild to use gnome2-utils & fdo-mime classes as suggested in forums.

Seems I overlooked the first time, but ${PN}-${PV} can be substituted to simple ${P}. Nice job, keep polishing it.
