Bug Description

Using quantal beta2, gwibber-service in french hits that issue:

" File "/usr/share/gwibber/plugins/facebook/", line 370, in __call__
    return getattr(self, opname)(**args)
  File "/usr/share/gwibber/plugins/facebook/", line 394, in receive
    return [self._message(post) for post in data["data"]]
  File "/usr/share/gwibber/plugins/facebook/", line 273, in _message
    m["html"] += " " + _("at") + " <p><b>%s</b></p>" % m["location"]["name"]
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 1: ordinal not in range(128)"

replacing the 2 _("at") instances with _("at").decode('utf8') fixes the issue, thanks Ken ;-)

gwibber (3.5.91-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
    - Default action on the preview should be view, retweet could
      be dangerous (LP: #1058222)
    - work around bug in libunity's SocialPreview by explicitly
      setting title and subtitle (LP: #1058198)
    - decode the translated string for "at" (LP: #1055762)
