Gnome Blog -post entries to your blog right from the gnome panel

The latest release of Gnome Blog is 0.8


Building Gnome Blog: is pretty easy because there's nothing to compile. Just download the tarball, untar it, cd into the directory, and run "./configure --prefix=/usr". Then run "make install" as root and that should be it. Note that the GNOME panel requires applets to be installed in its prefix (usually /usr) or it won't see them.

Running Gnome Blog (applet): after installation you may need to logout of Gnome. Then right-click on the panel, go to "Add To Panel->Accessories" and select "Blog Entry Poster". A Blog button should appear on the panel, and a preferences dialog should pop up. Please note that unlike gnome-blog 0.5, except for "Self-run Other", the URL is to the base of your Blog. If you have used a non-standard install you will have to select self-run other and hardcode the XML-RPC URL.

Running Gnome Blog (application): after installation you may need to logout of Gnome. Go to Application->Accessories.
