how to setup statusnet with gwibber

Asked by twoodcc on 2010-03-23

i am trying to setup gwibber with my statusnet install, but it doesn't seem to work. i've put in my username, password, and domain, but my site does not support SSL. is SSL required? i do not see an option to not use SSL. i'm using gwibber version 2.29.92.1

I am having a similar problem when trying to add my account from brainbird.net which also I do not think is secure. I am unable to see the time line but instead of the time line I am seeing my direct messages.

Try entering 'http://' in the domain part of the configuration, that should force gwibber not to use SSL.

@Daniel I've tried and no luck. The other question that might help here is that when you log into brainbird firefox alerts that the certificate is not secure or something akin to that and that I click on it is "trusted" so I don't know how gwibber reads that if it is sent the same info.

@Stephen brainbird uses a Cacert certificate, that's why you get the warning, but if you use http instead of https the certificate shouldn't matter. It's also very difficult to troubleshoot that server as it is invite only.

I'm also not sure this is related to the original question, so maybe we should discuss this somewhere else and not bother the original requester. I would be happy to help if you open a new question, but with the information I've got and no account on that server, it's hard to guess what the problem is.

May I suggest that
1. "laconica" be changed to "status.net" everywhere in field labels etc., and
2. The label "Domain" in the account creation/editing form be renamed to "Base URL" or something along these lines. Not everyone is running statusnet at the root of the server; it's important to hint the user that it is possible to enter "http://my.domain/path/to/statusnet" in this field.

Thanks for consideration

Eugene

@Eugene: 1 is already implemented in later versions, 2 is a very good idea. I will try to come up with a suggestion.

I have registered a bug regarding this and attached a patch and a screenshot of my solution:

Does this make things clearer?

Can you help with this problem?
