@z3ntu I believe you're using the git release, so this probably isn't relevant for you anymore. I've backported the webkit2gtk vapi fix from upstream just to get this working, so it builds successfully now. Once there is a new stable release, I'll remove the patch.

Thanks for reporting this problem.

I can't build the package:

WebKit2-4.0.gir:14882.11-14882.10: error: `WebKit.WebView.show_option_menu' already contains a definition for `rectangle'

@JustinZ I have had that patch in place since my last update. It builds fine.

@Romanovzky @meanjollies

Newer Vala version breaks the build, this patch fixes.

I have the same problem as @holunder, also using Antergos so I guess feedreader is broken upstream on it.

I can't seem to be able to compile the feedreader-beta version on AUR though, I get

==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

And feedreader-git on AUR does not seem to work with a TT-RSS source (which is my case).

So all and all, there are 3 feedreader versions and none work on my computer. Strangely enough, I was able to build feedreader-beta on another machine, so maybe something is locally broken?

@meanjollies: Oh… Thank you very much for your effort. My system is up to date, I'm running Antergos (which uses vanilla Arch repositories), maybe they have broken something.

@holunder, I just stood up a new system, installed Plasma, and was not able to reproduce the problem you're seeing. I can see the initial list of RSS services without any problems. Not sure what to tell you, other than to make sure your system is completely updated. :(

@meanjollies: "gtk_widget_event: assertion 'WIDGET_REALIZED_FOR_EVENT (widget, event)' failed"
A couple hours before, this didn't show up. It reposts when I move the window.
Edit: Did a relogin, now it's gone again. No errors.

@holunder, there should indeed be a list of RSS services to choose from. I don't use KDE, so I can't say for sure what you might be missing. If you execute it from the CLI, do you get any errors?

holunder commented on 2017-05-07 19:49

Hm, installed this for the first time. The first window in which I should chose a feed service has an empty list. Is something missing? I'm using Plasma, not Gnome.
