It depends of the networks you want to join.
If you only use msn, then you could use amsn.

Can you type "gaim" in a terminal and report here the output ?

When starting from terminal, it works ok. Also after I removed my gtalk account, it is also working fine from the Applications menu. I'll just use that. Thanks for your help.
