The bug report is there for 11 days now, but there is no much activity... Too bad, since earlier Git versions worked beautifully.

Please create an upstream bugreport.

I am also getting the same error as @cephalostrum since I last updated, a few days ago it worked, though.

Gtk:ERROR:gtkicontheme.c:3956:proxy_pixbuf_destroy: assertion failed: (icon_info->proxy_pixbuf != NULL)

After applying the fixes pinball-fixer suggested, I get a crash. It starts up and appear to retrieve some tweets, but midway through it outputs
Gtk:ERROR:gtkicontheme.c:3956:proxy_pixbuf_destroy: assertion failed: (icon_info->proxy_pixbuf != NULL)

and then core dumps.

After successfully building birdie-git, I ran into this error trying to run it (I should say at this point that I am running KDE4 as my desktop):

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/birdie", line 8, in <module>
from gi.repository import Gio, Gtk
ImportError: No module named gi.repository

After some research, I found that I needed python2-gobject installed.

This lead to the next error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/birdie", line 25, in <module>
from birdieapp.application import Application
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/birdieapp/application.py", line 37, in <module>
from birdieapp.utils.network import Network
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/birdieapp/utils/network.py", line 24, in <module>
import socks
ImportError: No module named socks

Again, after some research, I needed to install python2-socksipy-git (from AUR).

Now birdie runs!

I hope this helps...

Fixed, thanks.

For the last few months. building this package has failed for me.

Today I decided to pay attention to the build failure:

Running ./configure --enable-maintainer-mode --prefix=/usr ...
.....
./configure: line 14263: syntax error near unexpected token `1.35.9'
./configure: line 14263: `GOBJECT_INTROSPECTION_REQUIRE(1.35.9)'

I needed to install gobject-introspection for birdie to build.

I am using awesomeWM and received following errors.

gi.RepositoryError: Requiring namespace 'Gtk' version '2.0', but '3.0' is already loaded

ImportError: cannot import name GtkSource

first error required webkitgtk, and the latter gtksourceview3.

updated PKGBUILD..

python2-pillow is also a dependency of this package.

You also need change the shebang of ${pkgdir}/usr/bin/birdie
(https://github.com/birdieapp/birdie/issues/86)

You can find a modified PKGBUILD here:

Cheers!
