I also use kdenetwork-3.1-5 and have problems with knewsticker. But in my case
the symptoms are slightly different. The news are scrolling, but though it is
configured to update every 30 minutes it keeps showing old news. It apears to
actually download the news frequently, but keeps showing the old.

Comment 2 Than Ngo 2003-04-28 10:19:25 UTC
Please install kdenetworks-devel-3.1-5 package, it will work again.

This bug will be fixed in kde-3.1.1
