Same here. Just set up facebook. Nothing on refresh. :/

Comment 2 Agustin Ferrario 2012-02-20 22:17:42 EST
The problem is in the ferdora-gwibber application on facebook wich is not allowed to read the timeline. Problem is solved when lines 11 to 14 are commented from gwibber/microblog/plugins/facebook/__init__.py and the gwibber fb application is used instead.
Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-02-21 10:41:01 EST
I don't think Agustin is right here. I think the issue has to do with when people auth to facebook, along with a bug where the scope wasn't being properly set in the client.

I'm building a new gwibber for f15 and f16 right now that I've confirmed works for me. I would appreciate it if people having this issue could:

1) Update to gwibber-3.1.0-3.fc15 or gwibber-3.1.0-3.fc16
2) Reauthenticate to facebook. The easiest way to do this is to go into Edit->Accounts, then delete the facebook account and re-add it.

At this point, you should see the facebook posts in the gwibber main window and be able to post updates.
