today I updated to the new version of the module (by the way, a fantastic tool !). As written in the Documentation i uploaded "php" folder (from "facebook-platform") into "facebook-client" folder.

Well, the facebook conection isn't working now.. i´m getting this warning message:

"Fbconnect : Facebook PHP library file sites/all/modules/fbconnect/facebook-client/facebook_desktop.php not found see README.TXT"

Can you help me?

Thanks a lot.

download files from php folder, not php folder

I can verify this. I copied the content of the "php" folder into the "facebook-client" folder and still get this error. Looking in the php folder, I do not see a file named "facebook_desktop.php".

Hm... You're right. Check oldest version of fb client that I've attached
I'll correct this in next release.

Yeah, looks like they just updated those platform files. Unless there are specific functions you need, you should be able to just include the "facebook.php" file in the module (line 303 in beta9) instead of calling them all directly.

For a quick fix, you can also just comment out the facebook_desktop.php include (line 305) as I don't believe it's being used anyway.

No need. Just copy facebook.php file and rename to facebook_desktop.php.

It work for me.

This issue is fixed in HEAD. Download the dev version of the module.

I don't normally ask for help becsuse I can normally work things out for myself eventually.

However, I have spent the entire day trying to make this module work.

I am running Drupal. 6.2

I have installed the module FB Connect - fbconnect-6.x-2.0-beta1

I have followed the readme. The module is in my directory: public_html/test/sites/default/modules/fbconnect

I have followed the readme and downloaded the file from:

The file from the above url located in the readme is located in my directory at: public_html/test/sites/default/modules/fbconnect/facebook-php-sdk

When I unzip the file from github the filename has digits in it. I remove these as per the readme.

I can access the admin area of the FBconnect app. I enter my details from FB and then I click settings and I get this error: Ensure that you entered valid api keys.

I've tried clearing cache, i've even tried this on a new installation of drupal on a test site.

What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? I really would love a response because I cannot work this out.

Have you found an answer to the problem?

Where in the drupal7 structure should the "facebook-php-sdk" need to be installed?
I have tried every possible option and Drupal7 can't recognize it.

@waitetom: Seems like it should be sites/all/libraries/facebook-php-sdk/src/facebook.php, not modules.
Get latest version (3.2.0) from

tip: Download into sites/all/libraries/facebook-php-sdk
