Asked by Benni on 2010-03-06

after "add-apt-repository ppa:gwibber-team/ppa" which does fine, i cant install the actual version via ppa.

"apt-get update" says: "W: cant load 404 Not Found"

actual there is no "karmic" directory at

is this a bug or can i find the karmic stable ppa elsewhere?

I dont want to install a daily build, just the latest stable release. Is there no such thing for karmic?

Omer Akram (om26er) said : #3

the latest stable release is gwibber 2.0 and that already is in karmic.

Benni (benni-obda) said : #4

Ah, thanks.

Maybe you should change the description at

But now i have another problem as i tryed to install the daily build:

W: can't load The requested URL returned error: 404

is there a problem with 64bit binarys? What to do about it?

Thanks for any help again.

I am having the same exact problem - it seems there is no binary for amd64 Ubuntu Karmic.

The error message is:

Failed to fetch 404 Not Found
Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

This happens when the "gwibber-team" ppa is added (regardless of whether the "gwibber-daily" ppa is added as well, or not) to 64-bit version of Ubuntu Karmic.

If somebody know how to use the latest stable build in Karmic, please share, thanks!

Oh, and this does not happen when only the "gwibber-daily" ppa is added.

Isn't 2.30.0 now the latest stable version? There doesn't seem to be any (official) repository which would offer it for Karmic. The daily repo seems to be a bit too unstable...

Omer Akram (om26er) said : #8

gwibber 2.30 is not yet released, when it does you should find it in the gwibber team ppa

Can you help with this problem?
