I'm running Karmic on an Asus netbook and can't get one single Twitter app working -- all of them fail on authentication.

choqok goes

Code:
kdeinit4: preparing to launch /usr/lib/kde4/kio_http.so
findServiceByDesktopPath: kded/networkstatus.desktop not found
findServiceByDesktopPath: kded/networkstatus.desktop not found
as the authentication times out.

when I try to "authorize" gwibber, it simply stops instead of bringing up a Twitter screen.

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/gwibber/plugins/twitter/gtk/twitter/__init__.py", line 76, in on_twitter_auth_clicked
    web.load_uri(url)
AttributeError: 'webkit.WebView' object has no attribute 'load_uri'

Twitter works fine via the web, and all those apps work great on my desktop running Lucid.
