Sun Jun 05, 2016 10:05 pm

this is the address of it
http://www.open-tickr.net/

it works on linux btw


so the first step for me is to run it correctly and then i wish to make it full screen (meaning that i want many rss tickers that each will be in different color and different rss source)

thank you

Try
cd /tmp
wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/pool/main/t/tickr/tickr_0.6.1-1_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i tickr*.deb

hey
ok then

and after i will do that, how to make it appear multiple times over the screen so all the screen is loaded with rss feeds?

will it be complicated?

Ask the developers on their forum or contact page.

It's a simple question to take some random program that outputs a single line of text from a single source and convert it into a program that outputs a full screen of text from many different sources? Or is it simple to answer with it's likely not simple to do? The reason you'd want to ask on a support forum for the program is because it might already have these capabilities in which case the answer might really be that it is simple.

Yes, it's a simple question. But the answer is not simple unless someone has tried it, and can report on the success or problems found. You are more likely to find that "someone" on the forum for that software, rather than here.

When you have tried, you can report your experience here for others to learn from.

Just be sure you have your insurance paid up, all that screenshot is missing is the flashing and you have an epilepsy machine ready to go. (Not to mention everyone else will just get a headache, there is no possible way a human can process that much information at once, I wouldn't go past 4 tickers on a screen at one time, but that's going off of the working model that a human brain has 4 'buckets' for active memory, or can process 4 chunks of information at a time.)

Now the graphic designer in me looks at that mishmash of colors and just wants to start crying.
