Have you had a chance to address that? I'd prefer system GPS was off.

I hadn't read this thread before today though I'd been hoping to try Witter out based on the good reviews you've gotten (like here) - today I finally erased those .witter* config files, reinstalled, and it works like a charm, thanks!

Hi, since about 10 days ago, witter has failed to return my tweets, the application starts up but is in a permanent state up updating.

edit: I've unistalled, then removed all the .witt* files from home/user
I reinstalled then setup the account again, and got exactly the same error.

I'm running with CSSU testing 21.2011.38-1 Tmaemo3.1, I did update to this a while back but from memory Witter was still working though I cant be sure. Has anyone got witter working on this CSSU version?


I,ve started it from the command line and got the following, can anyone help me in poiting out why it's not working?

Code:
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 3:1.10.2.legal-1osso30+0m5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

~ $ run-standalone.sh python2.5 /opt/witter/witter.py
-sh: run-standalone.sh: not found
~ $ sudo gainroot
Root shell enabled


BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 3:1.10.2.legal-1osso30+0m5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

Hurrah! sucess

I did exactly what I did the first time, uninstalled witter, deleted all the config files, re-installed and it's now working.

No idea why that didn't work the first time.

Out of interest is anyone still devolping this great program?

Returning trends has never worked for me on Witter.

I get 'Error retrieving trends Server returned 404:'

I'd like to fix this and a search has suggested that Gettrends is now deprecated and now needs to be replaced by GET trends/:woeid

I have no programming experience, other than SQL but if I could find the files I need to look at I'm quite good at reverse engineering.

Am I correct that the Witter programs files are stored in /home/opt

if so can I just change the code in one of the files to try and fix this issue?

Th witter.py file has functions in it are these functions called from the same file or will they be located in separate files?

I'm guessing the file I will need to amend will be either

witter.py
or
twitter.py

Am I on the right lines? I don't want a solution just a pointer in the right direction, I've never been that good at learning from text books, but if someone could just confirm I'm digging about in the right area that would be enough.

In the meantime I'll keep reading...

Thanks

I think the developer motion moved on awhile ago, though he occasionally stops by here. This was a nice program at its peak and it would be nice to see someone pick it up again.

It might be caused by an out of date copy of the python twitter library. I'll have a look at it over the weekend and try and figure out whats going wrong. I've not used the trends parts of witter so I'll have to dig into it.

Last release to testing never got approved and took a long time to get votes iirc. I'll look at trying to get some fixes in place and a new version out over the weekend. Lets see if we can get a new version up and running.
