Ubuntu :: Remove Gwibber Status Indicator / Gwibber Status In The Panel While Keeping The Shutdown Button?
Mar 16, 2011
After a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 I uninstalled empathy (im using skype). The empathy menu in the evolution indicator was gone after that.I also uninstalled gwibber. But the gwibber status indicator remains within the about-me panel... Uninstalling the gwibber package also removes the me-menu which I want to keep actually. Especially the shutdown/restart... part of it. See attachment.I know there is a shutdown panel-app...but its butt-ugly and it doesnt allow to logon/off.
In another thread I read that the gwibber status shouldnt be there if no account for it is configured... which it is not... I do use ubuntu-one though which is in the same menu... I saw that this issue was addressed at some bug report before, but not fixed yet...
Does anybody know a good workaround to get rid of the gwibber status in the panel while keeping the about me and the shutdown button?
The text entry box that you can normally type a message into when you click on your name in the top right of the screen is missing. It's there on my laptop, and I set up a couple of broadcast accounts and then noticed it was missing on my desktop. I've uninstalled and reinstalled gwibber and it's still not there.
I'm currently using the 10.10 beta of Ubuntu with all of the most recent updates installed. When I boot up the computer, gwibber fails to start up and when I do open it, it shows an icon in the notification area (Which I flat out do not want) and does not use the indicator applet at all (even when closed).
I booted up my laptop as usual and found that when I opened Empathy IM Client it would not allow me to login when I changed the status to Online (or equivalent). Normally as soon as I open the client the Messaging Status can be changed in the top right next to the clock so I tried to remove it but unfortunately it took the shut down panel with it.
To try and bring them back I used the restore panel commands in terminal:
I have tried remove from ubuntu software center and Synaptic Package Manager, but when I reinstall Gwibber, it directly load from software list, and not download from internet. I want completely remove Gwibber, so if I want to reinstall Gwibber, my system download from internet and not install from database previous installation.
I have just upgraded to Lucid on Ubuntu. I am a long time Pidgin user. I tried using Empathy with Gwibber, but I can't get Gwibber to update my IM status(es) in Empathy, so I want to go back to using Pidgin. (Additionally, I can't get Skype to work with Empathy.)I installed pidgin-microblog and pidgin-mbpurple, and they allow me to view my Twitter feed in Pidgin and update my Twitter status in Pidgin. However, in Karmic, I was also able to specify certain "status availabilities" (one named "Twitter-Available" and one named "Twitter-Away", for instance) to have the IM status message for these statuses become populated with my Twitter feed. This capability seems missing in pidgin-mbpurple in Lucid (and it seems to be the only thing missing from Karmic).
Is there a way to have pidgin-mbpurple update certain "status availabilities" in Lucid (and I'm just missing something) or is this no longer possible?Equivalently, is it possible to have Gwibber update my status message in Empathy? (I just want to be able to update my status once on one of my three computers - and have it propagate to all my other accounts (IM and social networking) and computers).
I am on a DELL Latitude 6500 laptop. It has a physical button to enable wifi. On Kubuntu 10.10 it was working perfectly. Now that I have made a fresh install to 11.04, whenever I try and turn the wifi on, I get a status message that my wifi is enabled. But the led indicator does not glow. and I could not find my router nor any other routers in my building. The following is some of the that might be useful to debug.
According to this website [url] the wifi is compatible with ubuntu and does not need any external drivers I guess.
I did some maintenance and had to reinstall indicator applet on the panel. Now I'm missing the status applet (the one with the logged in username, and quick access to change chat status - power button to restart, shut down, hibernate...).
There's a way of getting it back? What package should I install again that maybe I missed?
I have deleted notification area from the top panel and now I need few items from there, like volume mixer. It is a way to restore top panel at the default status in Lucid Lynx?I've tried wit add to panel but i didn't succeed to get what i want.
I'm not quite sure what it's called, but it's the one with the speech-bubble next to my account name... I've looked everywhere, but because I don't know what it's called I can't find it.on the forum I can only find ways to get the mail icon back.
everytime I try to shutdown/reboot, it gets to the screen where it has the green/bold status messages on the side, but then it simply stops. The cursor doesn't blink, nothing happens...you could wait 10 minutes, and it would still be at that same screen. I don't know if I've described this well enough for anyone to understand, but I hope so! I don't have a camera, but if I did...I'd post a picture of where I mean...
But like I said, after getting to a certain, without actually shutting down, it simply stops and does absolutely nothing. This is rather inconvenient, and I'd like to find a solution to this if possible. EDIT: I'm sorry I didn't provide any hardware info, but I'm using Gnome...This didn't happen 100% of the time KDE like it does now though. (But it DID happen in KDE as well) I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2... I'll be back in a moment with hardware info, assuming it may aid in a solution.
I moved things around a bit and I added a top panel to make my lubuntu be more what I'm use to with gnome but I deleted the bottom panel and now I can't find a way to add a shutdown button to the panel..
I installed KDE on my ubuntu 9.04. I was using kde for some time. Then later on I switched it back to gnome. I found that the shutdown button on the right top of the gnome panel was missing. How to restore it back? and has my gnome panel crashed?
I installed ubuntu 10.04 today..but when i clicked on "broadcast accounts" of nothing happened at all.I tried to run gwibber manually but again nothing happed at all...the "chat accounts" are working fine..the problem is only with gwibber..I searched different forums and found that some users are experiencing this problem and others are not.
I am having a problem getting my facebook account to add to gwibber. I have searched the forum for the last couple of days and found several others with an identical problem but to date no solution is offered other than keep trying.I have run gwibber in terminal and attempted to add the account. Below is the output. For information I am trying to add an existing account not create a new account.
** (gwibber:1986): WARNING **: Trying to register gtype 'WnckWindowState' as enum when in fact it is of type 'GFlags'[code]....
I recently updated my Lenovo laptop to Lucid Lynx, and everything works great, however Gwibber will not open. When run from the terminal I get the following errors.

Lucid is adamn good release and in my opinion, one of the best till date. If I have to rate Lucid on its OOB Factor (Out Of Box), I would rate it 9.7/10.I have an AMD based laptop with ATI graphics chipset and this used to be a major headache (ATI's fault ofcourse) previously and I was gearing up for another hour or so of installing the video drivers from ATI and getting it to work.But,suprisingly it just worked out of the box with visual effects enabled. Every component on my machine worked as it ought to be.
I cant say enough about the interface overhaul. Its like a F16 got upgraded with some slick Alien technology. Ubuntu 10.04 is surely a GOLD standard for all Linux Distros out there. Coming to this minor issue, I am unable to add the facebook account in Me Menu via gwibber. It takes the login credentials and prompts me to allow or deny publishing to facebook. Clicking on allow doesn't do anything, it just sits there.
I've recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and I've got to say that for me (been using Ubuntu since 9.04) that this has to be the best release yet, however one of the main added features doesn't successfully work for me? Unless I'm doing it wrong? So I'll list what I do just incase the problem is me.Firstly I access Gwibber (either from the Me Menu ( i think that's what it's called) and click broadcast account, or access it through the applications menu) then select Facebook from the drop down menu. I then click authorise and take all the steps needed to authorise Gwibber (logging in, accepting etc) and it says Facebook Authorised. I then click Add and it just highlights the box and doesn't actually do anything?
So I would like to know if I am doing something wrong while trying to authorise it and add the account, or if it just isn't working for me at the moment?
