Trouble adding groups

Postby crashman » Sat Jul 27, 2019 2:54 pm

Im running this in linux 16.04 and newsbin works but does not import new groups. I have not used your program in a while but at the add group interface it is fully populated and when I pick a group I imagine it should show up on the screen under groups. It does not.
Thanks for the last 20 years of your killer program although I am new to this interface.

Linux seems to have problems with hit testing the list controls meaning checking things on the list might not work. What happens if you select a group then click the "Subscribe Groups" button? Maybe you're already doing that.

The new groups will end up in the "Unsorted" folder on the groups list.
