Bug Description

When adding a new facebook account gwibber does not complete authorization on facebook page. It displays APP NOT SETUP.

I found a solution for this problem. Just use the Ubuntu facebook app key instead of gwibber app key that is not setup.

Edit the file /usr/share/gwibber/plugins/facebook/gtk/facebook/

On line 101 replace FB_APP_KEY with 302061903208115

Save the file and then restart the add facebook account process. It will add your facebook account without errors.

I haven't been able reproduce this on a fresh install of 12.04.4. I had no problem adding a facebook account, however I did hit the refresh bug 1287211. Switching app key at this point wouldn't be a good idea, and the Gwibber key seems to be working just fine.
