    I tried that, but it did not work for me.

    There is no directory gwibber, but a directory main. I used there the command: sudo python setup.py install and it installs gwibber.

    Unfortunately I could not get a step further, because, when I run gwibber it opens the window, but hangs and in the terminal I see:

    desktop:~$ gwibber
