How To Install QuiteRSS 0.13.2 On Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10, 12.04 And Linux Mint 15, 14, 13

Hello Linux Geeksters. After the shutdown of Google Reader, everybody is looking for RSS reader alternatives. As you may know, QuiteRSS is an open-source RSS reader, written on Qt and C++. The latest version available is QuiteRSS 0.13.2, which has been released soon. For a full list of features and improvements, see the official changelog.

In this article I will show you how to install QuiteRSS 0.13.2 on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia and Linux Mint 13 Maya.

Until QuiteRSS 0.13.2 will be added to the official PPA, you have to download the archive, extract it and compile and install the app from source:

$ wget -c quite-rss.googlecode.com/files/QuiteRSS-0.13.2-src.tar.bz2
$ tar -xjvf QuiteRSS-0.13.2-src.tar.bz2
$ cd QuiteRSS*
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

Or, you can wait until it will be added to the PPA, and do the following (for now, the repo contains the previous version QuiteRSS 0.13.1):

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:quiterss/quiterss
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install quiterss
