yahoo messenger with pidgin in ubuntu 9.04

Asked by gustav on 2011-02-14

Hello everyone! Which Yahoo Messenger can I download into Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty"

which will work with Pidgin 2.7.0 ? Under Appications > Wine > Programs it lists

Yahoo Messenger & Yahoo 7 Messenger, but neither will load when I click on them.

I want to be able to use a webcam with mic in the Yahoo Messenger program.

Thank you in advance!

Jaunty is no longer supported in any way, including here and the IRC channels on freenode. I recommend you upgrade to Lucid, Maverick or Natty (Natty is released in April 2011 when desktop support dies for Hardy).

upgrade to Lucid and take it from there.
