    Lightbulb FBuntu: Facebook Notifier for Messaging Menu

    Download the code from launchpad; follow the instructions in the README to set up authentication; and finally run it!

    All feedback gratefully received (preferably constructive).

    Code:
    bzr branch lp:fbuntu
    cd fbuntu
    mv auth.py.example auth.py
    [follow the instructions in the README file to set things up]
    python fbuntu.py
    [wait. and look in debug.log if thing's aren't going as expected]

    Re: FBuntu: Facebook Notifier for Messaging Menu

    just tried it, having problems with the "url=" field in the auth.py file

    I followed the instructions in README , and ended up on a page with a long url with "success" written on it, I copied that url in to the auth.py file and i got an error


    AttributeError: facebookAuthentication instance has no attribute 'user_id'
    im sure im probably miss reading the README file.

    The long url with "success" is exactly what we need. Sorry that was my mistake, I've updated the code. Please let me know if it still doesn't work.

    Another month or so (don't hold me to it!) and perhaps I'll have something stable and usable to the average user. At that point I'll have a look at PPA packaging.

    You can download the files individually if you wish.
    thanks, just downloaded the new version, it appears to be working (no errors so far) right now its just in a "Checking Facebook..." loop but I haven't received any notifications so far, but will report back when I can get a friend to "like" a post.

    edit: one of my friends "liked" my statuses, and I received the notification as expected

    edit1: seems good so far, but could do with an icon as currently it looks a bit ugly in the messaging menu (screen shot attached)

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    I'm actually ahead of you, so 'bzr update' and take a look at the README file once more
