Summary: application/rss+xml feeds do not get recognized
Component: akregator konqueror plugin
AssignedTo: akregator-devel lists sourceforge net
ReportedBy: davidlee berkeley edu
Version: 알 수 없음 (using KDE 3.5.5, Kubuntu (edgy) 4:3.5.5-0ubuntu3)
Compiler: Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.17-10-generic
It seems that akregator (konqueror plugin) is not able to detect and handle feeds that have the MIME type "application/rss+xml". When clicking on a link that points to such a file, konqueror pops up the standard dialog that is shown when unknown file types are downloaded. Also, right clicking on the link itself does not display a "Add feed to Akregator" menu item.
go to http://bugs.beryl-project.org/ticket/116
click (or right click) on "RSS Feed" at the bottom of the page.
clicking on the link should add the feed to Akregator, or at least confirm if the user wants to.
Right clicking on the link should display a context menu that has the "Add feed to Akregator" option.
It is possible that the file is only sent with the MIME type upon clicking the link, and therefore, can only be determined to be an RSS feed once the file is requested. If this is the case, what should be the proper workaround for the Akregator plugin to notice such a link?
