Pino-twitter – Twitter and Identi.ca client
Pino is Twitter and Identi.ca client for Linux desktop. It's simple and fast. It written on Vala language and compiles to the native binary code
Install pino-twitter in Ubuntu 10.04/9.10
Open the terminal and run the following commands
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vala-team/ppa
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pino
I get this error when executing “sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vala-team/ppa”.
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error
Ubuntu team, please replace gwibber with pino!!
Gwibber is the worst I’ve ever seen
Great ! I like… but …
-1- with 2 accounts (Identi.ca + Twitter), impossible to have both at the same time, or both in different tab… I must go in a menu to switch to the 2nd account 🙁
-2- when I switch from one to the 2nd accound, Pino reload messages … take some seconds (it’s not keep in memory ?)
-3- no option to configure the color of the messages or background (I want different colors between my Identi.ca and my Twitter) …
Seem great, but need very little improvement
ok, I see …
I really need the futur Pino : 0.3.x 😉
General features for 0.3.x release:
Support for multi accounts without switching <— Great !!!
Support for OAuth in Twitter
Support for any other services, not only for twitter-like
Using librest for Twitter (and maybe for Facebook)
Complete coincidence you publish this article on the same day I’m trying to work out how to install it…
+1 on rEnr3n’s comment – I’m getting this:
gpg: requesting key 7DAAC99C from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn’t connect to host
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0
It lacks feature to make the tweet read/unread. It’s not flexible. I hope it could be in the next versions.
@Chris Keyserver might be down at that time. I’ve installed it successfully after few hours.
no maverick pino ppa ?? 🙁

There are no packages for lucid. Development on this project kinda died off a while ago. Which is a pity as it showed potential. Gwibber is a terrible client, but sadly the only one that I’ve found even remotely usable on Ubuntu which is a sad state of affairs indeed.
