Have you upgraded from Lucid before this issue happens? Please can you try to reset the gconf settings of gwibber and try to reproduce this issue? for do that you should run something like "gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/gwibber"

Could you please execute gconftool-2 --dump /apps/gwibber > gwibber-settings.xml and attach gwibber-settings.xml here?

gwibber settings

@tobias_t: resetting gwibber-settings (like in #2) and setting up settings from Gwibber again should help.

Yet I'm curious - how come you have a setting called "refresh_interval"? It should be called "interval". Did you rename \ edit the setting yourself? Please, specify which gwibber version did you use before the error has occurred.

any news about this issue?

Gary M (garym) wrote :

This error just occurred for me on a system with current updates based on a maverick alpha-3 desktop install. A possible contributory factor was a recent install of the netbook package, with this error happening the first time I logged-in using a netbook session. Desktop sessions since that install had been ok.

Traceback below shows problem occurred while the "interval" setting was involved. Attached gwibber-settings.xml has no "interval" parameter, FWIW.

Strange... got the same error logging into a GNOME desktop this time. Did UNE eat my gconf or my dbus? Will I ever be able to use my python to gwibber again? Who invents these names? :)

I believe this issue to be not happening in gwibber 2.32.2 could anyone confirm that? and also the last duplicate was in 2.31.94

I get this bug in Ocelot from Evolution :/

I don't run gwibber and I get this error. I have evolution running most of the time, so I think yes, It could come from Evolution too.

For what is worth I get this dialog box every time I install updates.

Lisa Simpson (lisa-p) wrote :

As far as I know I don't use gwibber. I have a a clean install of Oneric 64 bit. And I get it a LOT when I run updates now too. It seems to be getting worse, not better, but then again my Evolution has other problems. For example, I cannot add a 2nd or any subsequent email addresses because the account assistant crashes. POOF. Gone... Nothing.

I only get this sometimes, when I start evolution. Evolution runs ok after confirming the error notification. My settings are, that mailboxes are automatically checked when evolution starts. I dont use gwibber.
