Bug Description

I'm using archlinux, and an "homemade" version of gwibber 3.0.0.1, using gwibber-light PKGBUILD.

On first start, after creating first account, I got this error message :

/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gwibber/gwui.py:753: GtkWarning: IA__gtk_range_set_range: assertion `min < max' failed self.scrollbar.set_range(0, len(self.messages) - 1)

And every single time I switch to / from search UI to timeline UI.

Forgot to add packages used by this PKGBUILD :

http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47233

dbus-python libwnck python-distutils-extra python-egenix-mx-base python-feedparser python-imaging python-mako python-notify python-pycurl python-simplejson python-wnck python2 python2-gconf python2-oauth pywebkitgtk pyxdg

Here are the lines around line 753 :

self.messages = self.message_view.render([selected_stream], count)
pos = self.messages.index(id) if id and id in self.messages else 0
self.scrollbar.set_range(0, len(self.messages) - 1)

or maybe, it is a new libwebkit version bug for this empty and unusable box ?!

summary: - Cannot type text in input box.
+ Can't send status message. Box is grayed and not editable.

Note : I installed a virtual archlinux with gnome 2.32.xx and gwibber 3.0.0.1 works flawlessly.

More infos. Gwibber 3.0.0.1 is broken with gnome 3.0, but works with both xfce 4.8 and gnome 2.32.

Some infos.

Got this in console :

ERROR:dbus.proxies:Introspect error on com.Gwibber.Messages:/com/gwibber/Messages: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name com.Gwibber.Messages was not provided by any .service file

Could you please give any idea on how to fix it ? Thanks.

Have the same problem with Arch Linux and gwibber 2.32 (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=24544) and gwibber 3 (http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=48086). The write box is grayed and one is unable to write anything

Don't know what was the fix, but I can use gwibber 3.1 on Archlinux. Could it be solved as fixed ? Thanks.
