Bug Description


The preferences menu shows the system setting panel instead. I run Gwibber and it always happens. Running it in terminal I get this error:
** (gnome-control-center:6895): WARNING **: Could not load setting panel "credentials": Unknown error

I'm using Gwibber 3.6.0 in Lubuntu 12.10 in a clean installation.

I have the exact same problem on a fresh Linux Mint 14 install.
Note that if you can't add any accounts Gwibber is completely useless!!!

Occurs when:
Gwibber is started, or Edit->Accounts is clicked in the Gwibber menu.

What should happen:
A dialog should open where you can manage accounts.

What happens instead:
The System Settings dialog opens (or if System Settings is already open it takes the focus).

Additional info:
If Gwibber is started from the terminal the following output is produced:
** (gnome-control-center:29371): WARNING **: Could not find settings panel "credentials"
** (gnome-control-center:29371): WARNING **: Could not load setting panel "credentials": Unknown error

Exact same issue for me. I'm running Linux Mint 14/Gnome 3.6
