What program are you talking about? I assume you mean Gaim or Kopete.

Sorry, just noticed this is in kdenetwork. The only voice feature on the roadmap for Kopete is Jingle, which is for the Jabber protocol. As far as I know this is the only protocol with voice in development, you may be better off with the official Yahoo client for linux if you absolutely need voice.

As far as I know, Kopete does not support voice chat, nor does the official Yahoo! client for Linux. The default application for voice chat in Ubuntu is Ekiga. In order to use that, the people you are talking to will also need to be using Ekiga, or some other SIP client.

Can you help with this problem?
