Get no updates of tweets in Gwibber

Asked by Oliver Duerre on 2010-08-29

Hi there,

since couple of days, I don't get any updates of Tweets in Gwibber. If I start Gwibber in the Shell, I get following messages:

ich@ich-vaio:~$ gwibber -d

after authorise, the add button disappears, gwibber officially sucks

Great, that fix's the Gwibber updates issue. However, it's broken the neat little panel in the top right of desktop that had the shutdown button, the mail/chat/broadcast button etc.. Any ideas how to get that back?

Scratch that. After _another_ restart it has 'fixed' itself. Spooky.
