Description Oleg Atamanenko 2010-09-20 22:57:48 UTC
Version:           1.6.5 (using KDE 4.5.1) 
OS:                Linux

Akregator doesn't add feed from commandline if it is already running. Thus, it is impossible to configure firefox to add feed to akregator.

Also, it will be great if parameter --addfeed will not be required. (So, when user chooses akregator to use as web feed handler it will work as user expected. Nowdays akregator just shows its window and *nothing* happens).

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start akregator.
2. Run from konsole akregator --addfeed http://feeds.feedburner.com/blogspot/hsDu

Actual Results:  
<unknown program name>(11052)/ main: akregator is already running, exiting.

Expected Results:  
Feed is added to the akregator.

OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.35-ARCH
Compiler: gcc
Comment 1 Christophe Marin 2010-09-24 02:17:09 UTC
Works as expected in trunk, even if akregator is already running.

akregator <url> without --addfeed exists since 07/2007 (http://websvn.kde.org/?revision=683223&view=revision)
