My Gwibber app in 10.04 seems to have fallen victim to the OAuthcalypse. I understand that the latest version of Gwibber has this corrected. What is the easiest way to install a version of Gwibber that will work once again with twitter?
The gwibber version with fixed Twitter OAuth is now in
lucid-updates Running your update manager via either: System -> Administration -> Update Manager , (or
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade) should trigger the update process.
The easiest way to grab the latest version of Gwibber is to add the
ubuntu-desktop PPA (which includes the latest updates for desktop software, including Gwibber)
From command line:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
If you don't want the whole
ubuntu-desktop ppa (which you may not - though it can be quite helpful to avoid issues of this nature in the future) you can simply add the Gwibber Daily PPA which will only provide the updates for Gwibber
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwibber-daily/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
After the upgrade you will need to restart Gwibber:
If that method does not work open the Gwibber interface then choose
Quit and Launch it again either from the Message Indicator Applet or via
Gwibber Social Client
Once Gwibber has restarted you will need to authenticate your Twitter account. Open the client and navigate to
Accounts then click Authorize on your Twitter account in order to complete the process.
The Oauthcalypse caught me off guard too - even though I was watching the Countdown to OAuthcalypse I failed to relate that to Gwibber
Add the Ubuntu Desktop PPA
sudo add-apt-repository sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-desktop/ppa
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade\
then restart Gwibber
