Is social networking possible on Linux environment? This is the open question for those developers who are working on Linux machines and still want to get connected to the outside world from the server environment they are working in. You can make the twittering facility available to all the end users who are working on these machines with the software TweeGTK rev11 which is the lightweight and easy to use twitter client that will best suit for the GNOME desktop. This can be installed in the environment that is intended to support the authentication facility through the use of OAuth.

You can try your hands in bringing new features into this software. You can also explore if the tray notification support can be enabled in this software. Though there is a big set of goals that are targeted by the developers of this software not all of them are still incorporated into the coding. One simple thing about this software is that you bring this up very quickly and easily. You just have to give the common line ./tweegtk.py from the directory where the necessary files are downloaded and kept ready by you. After ensuring enough permission is provided on this file to execute you can issue this command at the command line prompt.

A lightweight twitter client for GNOME

TweeGTK is a lightweight twitter client for the GNOME desktop environment that supports authentication using OAuth.

Please help me in the development of this application. In the future, this app is expected to get the following features:

* URL Shortening (is.gd and bit.ly)
* Twitpic support
* Tray Notification support
* Twitter profile viewing, following and unfollowing
* New Retweet support

Right now, the app is very very far away from its goals.


This app runs directly. To run it, type the following command in the command line:


in the directory where this file is located.

This app requires Tweepy python module to be installed. Unfortunately, it isnt in the repositories. To install it from source, go to:
