If you are an active user of Twitter, You do not like to access the service of microblogging from the browser and use Linux, You have it frankly wrong. This is my case. As a Mac OS X user as well, I’m used to the great Twitter client Tweetbot that spills out each and every one of my needs, but when I’m with any Linux distribution, what I’ve found for years is little less than a shame. I tried it a long time ago CorebirdBut the installation was tricky and didn’t work too well, although it pointed out ways.
Today I found out that Corebird has received new version. This is Corebird 1.1 and no longer needs to be done nothing complicated to install, Although not yet available via repository. In any case, its installation is as simple as downloading the .deb file for our type of computer, double-clicking it and waiting for our package installer to do all the work. It will automatically download the dependencies and Corebird will appear the corresponding section (internet), which did not happen when the installation was much more complicated.
Corebird, perhaps the best Twitter client for Ubuntu
Once installed, the Corebird image may not be the best in the world, but the features allow us to access:
- private messages
- Search option
Nothing else will start will ask us for a PIN. We just have to ask for it, which will take us to the Twitter website (enter username and password if we were not logged) And it will provide us with a number that we will enter in the program. If it closes on you, don’t worry. It has happened to me too and it happened to me in previous versions. This is the only bug I have encountered so far.
What maybe what I miss is the ability to add columns, Something I think was available in previous versions and now I am not able to find. In any case, I’m very happy to be able to use Twitter on Ubuntu again in good condition. Below are the download links for the .deb packages for the 32 and 64 bit versions.
