Gwibber doesn't show Twitter messages anymore

Asked by Sense Egbert Hofstede on 2010-02-19

Twitter messages don't show up in Gwibber anymore. How do I get them to show up again?

I've found the following error messages that have something to do with this issue:

When running 'gwibber-service' in the command line the following error messages appear:
2010-02-19 16:47:21,291 - <twitter:receive> Operation failed
2010-02-19 16:47:22,367 - <twitter:responses> Operation failed
2010-02-19 16:47:23,442 - <twitter:private> Operation failed

When running 'gwibber-service' in debug mode the following error appears in ~/.cache/gwibber/gwibber.log:
"error: (60, 'server certificate verification failed. CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt CRLfile: none')"

According to mdeslaur this is caused by a cert sync we did with Debian in the Karmic cycle that has since been fixed but on upgrade your file will not be changed back so it seems to only affect upgraded machines.

In your /etc/ca-certificates.conf file:

Remove the '!' out of the Equifax line.
Save the file, then "sudo update-ca-certificates"

I should add that this should only affect people who were running alpha/betas of karmic and who upgraded from there.

Can you help with this problem?
