I have setup a private instance of statusnet hosted by dreamhost. I have been trying to get the desktop linux client to connect. I get the bad nickname bad password error. I have uncommented the two lines in the .htaccess file as has been suggested in other threads. As an alternative I have tried to user other clients such as twibble, and pidgin with the statusnet plugin and all return with an authentication error. Also, using windows and it's desktop client also return bad nickname, bad password.
from reading extensively over the passed few days it seems that some people have had luck with uncommenting the two lines in .htaccess, while other people do not. I gather from searching that the statusnet desktop and mobile clients don't work with statusnet 1.1.0, is this correct? if so, will there be versions of the statusnet desktop and mobile clients working soon? if not, what other mobile apps, or clients do people have working with 1.1.0? I am a blackberry user and many of my statusnet followers are android and iphone users.
