Really old thread, but I now found out what to do, and how to make Gibbon working on my system. (Arch Linux). Maybe I will make a PKGBUILD file for it later.

Gibbon is depending on gsettings-desktop-schemas. Your system probably have a deb/rpm/pacman for that.

gibbon comes with a .xml file. bg.gibbon.gschema.xml. In my build this was installed in /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ (after 'make install')
Move this file to the directory containing the gsettings-desktop-schemas .xml files. On my system they are in /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/org.gnome.desktop.<...>.xml

$ sudo mv /usr/local/share/glib-2.0/schemas/bg.gibbon.gschema.xml /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

then you have to "compile" these schemas.
$ sudo glib-compile-schemas --targetdir=/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/


After that gibbon starts up with no problem. 

Good luck and thanks to Guido for his effort with this client.

One Linux client that is a work in progress is

It is a GTK+ front end for FIBS. The primary developer is Guido Flohr.

Guido has also developed bots for FIBS and wrote a FIBS server simulator
in Perl called BaldLies https://www.openhub.net/p/baldlies . The server
can interface with GNUbg using the external socket interface.

Guido has also contributed to GNUbg. I've worked with him to fix some
problems in GNUbg that he encountered while doing development on his
