I am considering returning gwibber to the version from the standard repo (as opposed to the unstable ppa) so I can use the me-menu again. However, I use twitter quite a bit, and I'd hate to be hit with OAuth problems. Will this be safe?

I would be interested in figuring out why the Me Menu in maverick doesn't work with gwibber from the unstable PPA. I am a Gwibber developer and the maintainer of the Me Menu, and as far as I know that combination should work, but I haven't tested that lately. Please give me some details of the symptoms you are seeing. – Ken VanDine Jan 26 '11 at 2:17

What version are you downgrading to?

I believe maverick-updates has a backported OAuth fix. Either way, it's had several version bumps since maverick-proper.

If it's before Maverick, again it may have been backported in the updates repo but I can't say for certain.

I was referring to what ever comes with maverick (as you mentioned - maverick-updates - should be what I mean). – RolandiXor Jan 26 '11 at 1:46
