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 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 have a problem with gwibber. It has emerged randomly for no apparent reason as I have not changed any settings. All of a sudden, when updating my status on Facebook, and I click send, gwibber appears to work for a while, and then just nothing happens. My status does not get updated. It works fine with Twitter. It's only facebook. I have checked my application settings in Facebook and gwibber has full permission to post.#
I tried setting up the account again in gwibber, but this just opened a can of worms, because I had to reinstall gwibber and delete all of the config files in order to reinstate my facebook account, (see URL...)due to a bug in gwibber, which was a pain.
I tested out Ubuntu 11.04's facebook status program called gwibber. I found the status updates always popping up a little annoying so I uninstalled it. But the statuses keep appearing.I still use the chat program empathy internet messaging, I wouldn't have to remove that too would I?
For some odd reason, Gwibber won't open at all. The process is listed as "Sleeping", but every time I try and open the app, nothing happens. I tried re-installing it, and even deleting it via Synaptic and installing, but to no avail.
I thought I would give Gwibber a a try, so I set up my Twitter account with it. Seemed to work just fine. However, when I deleted the Twitter account from Gwibber, the messages I previously downloaded are still in the main window. I've checked for ".gwibber" in the home folder, but there's not one. So, I did a search on the machine for all Gwibber folders, and none had any message history in it.
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?
i have a dual boot PC with Linux and windows 7. I have observed that facebook chat doesn't work properly when i use linux. and some sites dont open quickly or dont open at all.But there is no such problem in windows. What to do?
I am facing a problem concerning secure websites where I get the "Connection Reset" error in browser after a timeout of I think 1 minute.
OS: Fedora 14 ( I faced same problem with Ubuntu 10.10 )Browsers: Chrome and Firefox
The issue is not there on Windows using Chrome and Firefox so I believe this is a problem with how linux manages secure connections. I can access all the google secure websites too. There a few other websites apart from facebook.com that I know which I am unable to access.
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 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.

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?
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.
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 haven't ever had this working as I've never tried before today. Gwibber won't post to my ping.fm account. I'm certain the correct username and web-key have been entered (though Gwibber doesn't tell you one way or the other). It doesn't matter if I try to post via the Gwibber interface or the indicator-applet-session textbox... neither work. No error messages.
- I know Gwibber is working because it will post to twitter, facebook, identica, etc. - I know my ping.fm account is working because it will post direct from website and/or browser extension
