Feeds database gets reset upon quit

Since the last update (or before, I'm not exactly sure,) my feeds.db located in ~/.local/share/data/QuiteRss/QuiteRss/ gets reset to default (53248 bytes) and my feeds are gone. I am able to "import" my old feeds by replacing this file with one from the ~/.local/share/data/QuiteRss/QuiteRss/backup folder.

I am running Ubuntu 13.10 on Linux version 3.11.0-19-generic. QuiteRss was installed using the Ubuntu package manager. apt-cache show quiterss returns this:

Everything else seems to work just fine.

Thanks for reading,




I would like to second Pyro's reported issue ... I'm having exactly the same problem with Ubuntu 13.10 32 bit. After shutting-down QuiteRss , I look at the feeds.db residing within the ../share folder and I notice that its down from 46 Mb to a mere 5 Mb and all feeds are gone.

I restored the feeds.db from backup and tried again several times , changed the file permissions but no help - it gets deleted and reset to an empty reader everytime. I even re-installed the app but no use.

I've been using QuiteRss for more than a year now and never faced such a serious problem. Is there anyway I can revert to the last stable version , it would be a big help.



Please don't misunderstand me

Please don't misunderstand me, but I actually find it relieving to hear that I'm not the only one with this problem, as I seem to be the first one who reported it.

Thanks for explaining the issue in a more detailed way.

What I could draw up until now is that:

  • The issue seems to only happen whenever the application is quit.
  • The resulting size of the file "feeds.db" can vary. Yours got about 100 times as big as mine.

I guess it might have something to do with the 0.15.2 fix "Removing symbolic link to file feeds.db". Though I have not been involved in the development at all.

Later will be available test

Later will be available test version.
