I updated your PKGBUILD to use the stable version of FeedReader. CMAKE is set to build without libunity, so its dependency's are removed.

Here is the Pastebin:

It builds successfully, so feel free to use it...

Just a heads up:
You don't need to replace the webkit version in the build script anymore. There is a build switch now ;)
Just append "-DUSE_WEBKIT_4=ON" to the cmake command.
Also there is a stable branch now. So no need for unstable anymore ;) (lp:feedreader/1.2)

Actually I must say I don't see any problems using python-html2text package, feedreader works for me very well and I don't have issue you described. I will investigate this and try to make some compromise, for now I changed dependencies form python-html2text package to html2text-with-ut8, but when I would find any problems then I will change it back to python-html2text as it could be find in official repos.

Using FeedReader with Feedly (and maybe with other sources), FeedReader never actually passes the loading screen.

Enabling the DEBUG mode in dconf-editor shows that feedreader-daemon is in a loop forever throwing the following error:

html2text: error: no such option: -u

After opening a bug in Launchpad and talking with the developer (, it seems that this comes down to a packaging error, since "python-html2text" is listed as a dependency in the PKGBUILD and not the actual html2text binary (

However, I couldn't find an official html2text package in the repos, but there is an "html2text-with-utf8" package in the AUR. Changing the dependency in the PKGBUILD and building with that works and FeedReader actually loads all the feeds.

I have no idea why there is no simple "html2text" package in the repos, but I would appreciate it if you could for now change the dependency from "python-html2text" to "html2text-with-utf8".
