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)
$>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.
