you need the python-imaging library (PIL) installed (it is available from Ubuntu repositories)

did you install via PPA or from source? if PPA then we need to make sure python-imaging is listed in the dependencies for the archive

Dominic, You a star ;)
Thanks

I installed it from the repos:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwibber-team/ubuntu jaunty main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jorge/ubuntu jaunty main

I also updated to a later one from:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/fta/ubuntu jaunty main

This also had the error, before installing python-imaging

hopefully either jorge or fta will upload a new build to PPA with the fix in :-)

Changed in gwibber:

Hi BarryW

Did you try:

sudo apt-get install python-imaging

Jorge or I should push an update to the gwibber-team PPA soon.
