I decided to try the Snownews.dsl. It said in the info file that it would convert the OOXML file that I exported from Reader. Anyway I downloaded snownews, put it in mydsl, and rebooted. I opened a terminal, typed snownews, and the program started with errors. I needed to change the permissions on the /home/dsl/.snownews directory and files to dsl staff. After that it ran good but I couldn't find the import feature. I went to the snownews web page and found out the import tool is actually a perl script. I tried this script but it failed because of a missing lib. I finally decided to open the OOXML file in Beaver to cut and paste my links into snownews using shift insert. This worked great and snownews is really fast. I soon discovered that I wanted to open items and to open links modify the /home/dsl/.snownews/browser file with a dillo %s line.
