I recently installed 13.04 and successfully updated the whole OS. There was this friends app that came with Ubuntu to replace Gwibber, but now its gone and can't find it anywhere.

  • What is that app named ? Please explain to us, we dont know what application you mean – Denny Apr 26 '13 at 10:37

    sudo apt-get install friends-app – Qasim Apr 26 '13 at 10:39

How to fix your problem:

Open up the program named "terminal" on Ubuntu, and type this:

sudo apt-get install friends-app -y

This will install the friends-app, and it will come back.


  • Maybe this is a bug, since I don't have Friends preinstalled as well, but this command solves it all – Alen Apr 27 '13 at 6:49

Unity has a social lens installed by default in Raring. While you can’t tweet from it you can view statuses, mentions, messages, etc.
