I finally downloaded and installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my Macbook Pro under Parallels.  I did this so I could try buzzbird on Linux, and it worked quite well, requiring very few tweaks.  In fact, the only difference with the windows version is that the buttons in the statusbar don’t have an icon in the Linux version, as the default behavior for XULrunner is to draw the button outline on hover– thus, having the outline on the icon just looked weird.

Now I’m going to take a few days off to work on a few other things before tackling version 2beta.  I’m going to need to make some significant changes in the next release to support themes and multiple tabs.

Oh – one more thing, the forum on planetblur seems to be totally hosed.  Not sure what’s up with that.  But until now, no one has really used it anyway.



  1. Just downloaded and running on linux (Sidux 2009.1) and it works good. Really like. Well done.
    Any chance of adding identica accounts?
    I will keep an eye on this and if you need any testing on various platforms (linux, windows, BSD, and some strange ones, sorry no mac) send an email.

    • Thanks! I’ve got a bunch of features I’m probably going to want to add before I tackle, although the APIs are pretty much the same, so I might be able to squeeze that in when I add support for multiple accounts and saving account info.
