Hello all

I currently use Twhirl on AIR for my win machine and would like to add twitter (and others some day) support for VL

I've run across a bunch of offerings but I haven't a clue which one to choose. I thought the Adobe AIR linux beta thing might give me what I have on my win box but AIR doesn't seem to install. It's just a bin file that you set the chmod to +x so you can run it. But nothing happens. There are some KDE things but they are all very new and untested.

Any opinions / suggestions would be great.

Thanks  Smiley

Hi Monty67,

I use Twitux , it has a simple interface but works great for me.
U can find more info on their website : http://live.gnome.org/DanielMorales/Twitux

I use TwitterGadget integrated into Gmail. Is that the same as you mention?

I am still wondering if it is more efficient to do chat, twitter en gmail in a browser or by seperate applications (eg pidgin, twitux and firefox)

Yup, twittergadget.

Twitter clients seem a bit thin on the ground for the penguin
