With Gwibber you don't use a specific syntax to specify a Laconica server. When you are creating an account (Accounts > Add) select Laconica as the service. Enter in your username and password, and for domain you enter in the domain of the Laconia service you are using. In your example, that would be You then select whether you want to receive messages and/or send messages to this account and save. Gwibber should then be able to interact with that account.

It appears that does not support SSL. Please try modifying the account in Gwibber and checking the checkbox that is labeled "Allow insecure connection". This should resolve the error you are receiving.

This option is available on newer versions of gwibber. I'm using 1.2.0 and it's available.
