Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Friends App is a simple social network aggregator, which has been created as a replacement for Gwibber. It has been recently upgraded to Friends App 0.9.2, getting a new Mentions tab, displaying the user’s mentions. When clicked, it displays only the mentions, in a dedicated window, in order to separate the mentions from the timeline.
Since it is available via the default repositories of Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, installing Friends App 0.9.2 is easy. Just update the local repository index and install the friends-app package. Like this:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install friends-app
