    I found a hint for a solution via bug 523327.

    Basically, check your /etc/hosts file ("sudo gedit /etc/hosts" into a terminal window to open) has the following:

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.1.1 your computer name

    Mine had "username-laptop" where it should have had "your computer name". After changing this it works perfectly.

    I must apologize to the Gwibber community and its developers. After adding the daily builds to the repositories, it is now working like a charm (dare I say it is Magical and revolutionary?).

    Facebook updates are still a bit slow, and I do wish they would add Linkedin, but I can say that I now no longer have to run TweetDeck, and the exceedingly icky Adobe Air, which just made me feel dirty every time I used it...

    Well done Gwibber Team!
    Currently happily running Ubuntu/Xubuntu 12.04 and Precise Puppy...

    Sorry for being so noobish, but how do you add the daily builds?
