nn-tk-16.4: description + notes
nn-tk retains the basic structure of screen mode nn
where you first select the articles in a group you want to read and
then page through them. All the old nn commands should still work.
The TCL/TK code provides a GUI interface with command menus and
buttons, the use of the mouse to select articles, a scrolling panel
for displaying articles and group selection using either of scrolling
panel or cascading menus. There is a panel that displays the Reference
thread tree structure and this can be used for selecting and
unselecting articles. Killing and selecting of articles can be
configured using a GUI interface. If exmh is available then
there is also an internal editor for posting items and the ability to
send and read MIME and PGP messages as well as to turn URL's into
buttons for passing to netscape (or another WWW reader). With
exmh v2 there is the ability to display inline HTML.
After installing nn or nn-tk, you may wish to
setup some configuration files.
- Putting the name of your news server into
/usr/freeware/lib/nntp_server will simplify startup.
/usr/freeware/lib/nn/init contains system-wide
init.sample in the same directory
for a template.
- Text placed in
/usr/freeware/lib/nn/motd will be
displayed each time nn starts.
- Creating a publicly-writable
file will let you gather some usage statistics. Although this version
of nn was not built with
AUTHORIZE defined, you will still need to trim the
Log file periodically.
/usr/freeware/lib/nn/nn-defaults can also be used to
customize nn. See the man pages for details.
- In the unlikely event that your mailier does not understand domain
routes.sample for a template.
