I as a user of KDE and at Twitter, I almost just received news that hurt me as if it were a blow to my lower area: Choqok, the best client for Twitter / Status.net de GNU / Linux, is officially out of support.
And I have no idea if something has had to do with it, but this morning it didn't work anymore. Ready, he died. And is that Twitter turned off its old API. The point is that its developer (who was also who was in charge of Blogilo), you have made use of your rights and just put the project asideWell, now we are going to dedicate the time to Choqok to photography.
But not all is lost. At least for me there is always a worthy replacement, which has a version in Qt and which we have already talked about in FromLinux: Hotot.
Twitter shuts off old API. Old versions stop working. please update to latest version of Hotot Chrome. It works on new API.
Installation on Debian / Ubuntu
To install it on Debian what I did was download the packages from Sid's repository:
And I installed them using the command:
sudo dpkg -i hotot-qt_0.9.8.13 + git20130311-4_amd64.deb hotot-common_0.9.8.13 + git20130311-4_all.deb
In the case of Ubuntu We just have to add the line to sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/hotot-team/ppa/ubuntu [lucid / maverick / natty / oneiric / precise / quantal / raring] main
We update and install:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install hotot-qt
