Gwibber seems to default to one account when sending replies & messages

Asked by Craig Huffstetler on 2009-05-07

I am having an issue wrapping my head around how Gwibber handles messaging.

Right now I only have two accounts setup:

- One for Twitter
- One for

It seems that no matter what I do it defaults replies and messages to -even if- the reply is meant for a Twitter user (and Gwibber recognizes that the incoming message came from a Twitter user).

Why does it do this?

I know in choqoK for example there was a tabbed interface so it kept them separate. Twhirl also kept the accounts separate via windows. Now, Gwibber keeps them separate via colors. So:

- For replies: I would expect hitting "Reply" would reply to the "correct" account because Gwibber has already recognized the origination/source of the message (in my case -- either Twitter or
- For simple outgoing messages: Shouldn't there be a source to select where I am sending it to?

Am I missing something simple?

This is something that bothers me too, so I started working on it (among other things) in It's working now, the only thing missing is to recreate the buttons when the accounts list changes, which I haven't been able to find a place for yet.

Also, I believe replies are (at least in trunk) sent to only the account that the original message came from: it's just that the target account isn't indicated in the UI at all. Segphault said that he's been thinking about how to best do that.

Thanks Ilkka Laukkanen, that solved my question.

Thanks! That works wonderfully. I just wish they would add it to the main source tree or come out with a better solution to the current handling. It's very confusing that they can "handle" multiple accounts, but at the same time they really *can't.*
