I have just downloaded a portable version of RSSOwl. However it doesn't seem to keep the settings when I exit nor does it keep the feeds that I download. I would really appreciate any advice. Thank You
What do you mean with portable? Are you referring to keeping an install of RSSOwl on a usb-stick? You would need to specify the profile path then using the "-profile" argument.
I've got a good hint for you.
Just try to launch
javaw.exe -Duser.home=. -Djava.library.path=. -jar rssowl.jar
This way the program will use a folder ".rssowl" in your main directory.
Yes. RSSOwl is installed on my USB Stick. How do I specify the profile and then how do I use the "-profile" argument
Very easy: Run rssowl with:
rssowl.exe -profile <Path to Directory on USB Stick where RSSOwl shall store the profile>
Sorry I don't seem to understand. How do I get what you told me to do to work. IE how do run RSSOwl with the command rssowl.exe -profile <Path to Directory on USB Stick where RSSOwl shall store the profile>
You could create a link where you supply the parameter. like:
"rssowl.exe -profile F:/rssowlprofile", where F is the drive letter of your USB Stick.
Where do I put this information, is it in RSSOwl, or do I create a file, or where do I put this.
I assume you are on windows right? Then do as follows:
I have a german version of windows so the text might be labeld different.
Sorry I think I can't become more detailed without you coming over to my place and I show it to you :-)
