Kticker is a news ticker widget that downloads news headlines from selected sites and displays them on the screen periodically. Kticker is part of the KDE project, whose aims are to develop a powerful, free graphical desktop environment for Unix/Linux computer systems.
Kticker can download news from ten sites: the BBC, 7am.com, ITN, SlashDot.org, Segfault.org, Heise, Tages Anzeiger, CentralEurope.com, FreshMeat.net and The Age.
Kticker is free software. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License, which means the entire source code is available for download and/or modification.
Kticker has now gone Beta, hence I am in bugfix mode. The current version is 1.0.0beta5.
Kticker can also be found in the KDENONBETA package. You can get this from the CVS snapshots.
NOW AVAILABLE: A package for Debian Linux (potato) i386, with KDE 1.1.2: kticker_1.0.0beta5-1_i386.deb
