There is already a messenger that is installed by default in Ubuntu, it is called Gaim. You will find it located under the Applications>Internet>Gaim menu item.

Gaim is a multi protocol instant messenger program. It can connect to many different accounts at the same time, using one program. Gaim can connect you to your MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Google Chat, Jabber, ICQ networks and more.

If you need any more help, please let us know. Also, when you open Gaim, there is a help menu, or you can press the F1 key and that will also bring up the help menu.
