open Ubuntu Software Center, there search 'pidgin' and install it. the in the internet category select pidgin instead of empathy and enjoy :)

hmm.. is that Mr. Omer Akram feel that pidgin messenger better than empathy? but my friend use empathy, he can get online. i wonder why, instead i didnt change any settings of it.

susanti, is you internet using any firewalls? if not delete your yahoo account in empathy and reboot your system then start empathy again and add the account. which version of ubuntu are you using?

and also I did not say pidgin is better than empathy. if one does not work we can also try the other ;)
