Lightread won't sync with Googe Reader

Asked by Dale C. Miller on 2012-08-05

On Ubuntu 12.04 using Gnome Shell, when I open Lightread it shows that it is trying to sync but never brings in new articles from Google Reader. I am using Lightread 1.1.1.

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy lightread

I suggest you contact the PPA maintainer.

Yip, mine is also broken and doesn't want to sync any more... Pity as I really enjoyed this reader. Hopefully the developer can look into this issue.

George, a couple of days ago, I re-input my password and it now lets me sync. Somehow the password must have changed.

I was also having an issue with Lightread not updating. I signed out of Google Reader and back in via Edit -> Preferences and it updated fine.

Thanks. I had the same problem lightread not updating on ubuntu 12.04 /w gnome3.42. the solution was to log out of Google Reader in the Preferences and log back in.
