How to Install ‘Gnome Feeds’ News Readers in Ubuntu 18.04

Gnome Feeds is a minimal RSS/Atom feed reader written in Python 3 and GTK+ 3.

It offers a simple user interface that only shows the latest news from your subscriptions. Articles are shown in a web view by default, with javascript disabled for a faster and less intrusive user experience. There’s also a reader mode included, built from the one GNOME Web/Epiphany uses.

Gnome Feeds doesn’t integrate or sync with a cloud-based service, like Feedly or Inoreader, but feeds can be imported and exported via OPML.

1. Open terminal either via Ctrl+Alt+T keyboard shortcut or by searching for ‘terminal’ from application menu.

2. Paste below command and run to install flatpak framework:

sudo apt-get install flatpak

3. Add flathub repository, which hosts a large list of flatpak applications:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub

4. Finally install Gnome Feeds via command:

flatpak install flathub org.gabmus.gnome-feeds

Once installed, launch the software from application menu and enjoy!


To remove Gnome Feeds flatpak package, run command in terminal:

flatpak uninstall org.gabmus.gnome-feeds
