I hate to be negative, but the advice in the first response is unnecessary. You will not need to jump into an unsafe single user recovery mode to fix this and most user-land software related issues.

hisham, Pidgin as far I am aware does not support setting a friend status. You can however see them. As for avatars I am not sure.

The program "amsn" supports both these things perfectly, and with plugins such as "music" (downloadable from their project site) you can build a nice Live Messenger like interface. Assuming that is what you are looking for.

To install amsn, open a terminal and enter the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install amsn

You will then find amsn under "internet" in the menu.
