I tried on almost clean Ubuntu 10.04...

You need to install from Ubuntu repo:

python-setuptools
mercurial

Add PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/python-oauth2

Install from PPA:

python-oauth2

Download with Mercurial:

hg clone https://python-twitter.googlecode.com/hg/ python-twitter

From terminal:

python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install

Now install TwitterScreenlet with Screenlets Manager and it works fine!

Useless? Cannot be used? Really? I don't even know what's an OAuth! Please specify what you mean by that!

O Auth is the Identification process of Twitter.
Since 1st of Sep. Twitter allows log ins only over OAuth.
Password method is no longer supportet.
See: http://blog.twitter.com/2010/08/twitter-applications-and-oauth.html

Updated the code to support OAuth. As a result of this, installing of the screenlet got really complicated. Please check, if it works for you, maybe something can be made simpler.

If it just does not start, then you provably don't have all the required packages installed. Have you installed the development version of python-twitter (you have run setup.py with correct arguments to install it, see http://code.google.com/p/python-twitter/) and python-oauth2 from PPA? On my Ubuntu 10.04 it works fine. If you are sure all the required modules are installed, then maybe you can provide error report, if it exists (start screenlet in terminal from directory "cd ~/.screenlets/Twitter/" and run it with "python TwitterScreenlet.py", it should report something wrong in terminal). It could be of course that I have forgot to mention some module needed. I will try to check that later on clean system. Take care!
