5. DBUS INTERFACE

To allow integration with other programs Liferea profives a DBUS interface for automatic creation of new subscriptions. The script liferea-add-feed is a convenient way to use this interface. Just pass a valid feed URL as parameter and the feed will be added to the feed list. You can also pass non-feed URLs to use feed auto discovery. Example: liferea-add-feed "http://www.newsforge.com/newsforge.rss" Please note that Liferea needs to be running for liferea-add-feed to work.

6. ENVIRONMENT

http_proxy

    If a proxy is not specified in the Liferea preferences (which uses the proxy settings in gconf), then Liferea will use the proxy specified in $http_proxy. $http_proxy should be set to a URI specifying the desired proxy, for example (oqhttp://proxy.example.com:3128/(cq.
