    Default NNTP client for BT?

    Howdy fellas,

    Does someone know a decent NNTP client that works on BT3 KDE? I was browsing the net but all I managed to find was either some old junk or not properly working stuff at all.

    Well as much as I wouldn't like to disappoint you but all these links are useless... Just old (6 years!) junk, not working download mirrors, etc. But I've found something called GTK+ and I'm fighting now trying to install it. Not sure if it works after all...

    Also GTK+ is not a NNTP its a UI framework.


    GTK+ is a highly usable, feature rich toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces which boasts cross platform compatibility and an easy to use API.

    newsbin is for windows... It's really funny, there is indeed no decent NTTP client for linux. It is so obvious yet so unbelievable

    If you have bothered to click the link you'd see it a Howto run NewsBin under Linux FFS.

    For someone that is looking for a handout you sure are rude when help has been given. You aren't likely to get help in the future if all of your responses mock those in this thread....

    How about thunderbird. I'm sure you can install that. Pine and mutt can probably do NNTP too.
