I'd like to substitute the default URL with an XML one, but the theme turns invisible and doesn't work properly.
How can I get rid of this?
Thanks.

You can tweak the SKRSSReader to display more than one feed on your desktop. It is very simple:

Copy the folder with the theme, so you have as many copies as you want feeds on your desktop.

In each folder rename the .theme and the .py files to a unique name. Rename them to for instance skssreader.theme and .py, skssreader2.theme and .py, etc.

In the .py file look up the "rssfeed =" and "currentnewsf =" variables. Change the rssfeed to the feed you want to display and also make sure the currentnewsf variable contains a unique filename, like /tmp/.skssreader2.

You can now load each theme, and they will behave independently with their own feeds.

Have fun!

With some tweaks to ui this has some interesting potential. Good work.
