How to Install Pino's Microblogging Desktop Client on Ubuntu 10.04
Pino is a simple open source microblogging desktop client for your Gnome or XFCE desktop. It allows you a single place to keep up to date and post to Twitter and Identi.ca. The default microblogging desktop client in Ubuntu 10.04 is Gwibber. I have come across a couple bugs on a few of my machines, so I thought I would give Pino a try. I have used Pino on Fedora but never gave it a try on Ubuntu. The steps below are how I installed Pino on Ubuntu 10.04.
Since Pino is not included in the default repositories for Ubuntu we will need to add it.
Open a Terminal by going to Applications > Accessories > Terminal
Issue the following command to add it to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino
You will be prompted to enter your password
You should see something very similar to below.
You will need to do a apt-get update to refresh your list of available packages.
sudo apt-get update
Everything should of updated successfully. If you see an error message about not being able to connect. The repository may have been moved. Check to make sure you typed the sudo add-apt-repository ppa:troorl/pino correctly.
You can now do a quick search to make sure Pino is available to install.
sudo apt-cache search pino
You can install Pino by entering the following command
sudo apt-get install pino
Enter "Y" and hit enter to install.
You should now notice the Pino application in Applications > Internet > Pino - Twitter and Identi.ca client
