Newsbeuter Installation:
Open the terminal and type following command:
sudo apt-get install newsbeuter
After successful installation, you can open the application from Unity 'Dash'

Using Newsbeuter:
To add feeds to newsbeuter, you can either add URLs to the configuration file $HOME/.newsbeuter/urls or you can import an OPML file by running command:
newsbeuter -i pathoffile.opml
To manually add URLs, open the file with your favorite text editor and add the URLs, one per line

Now you can run newsbeuter again (from command line), and it will present you with a controllable list of the URLs that you configured previously. You can now start downloading the feeds, either by pressing "R" to download all feeds, or by pressing "r" to download the currently selected feed. You can then select a feed you want to read, and by pressing "Enter", you can go to the article list for this feed.
