    Re: HOWTO: Install Yahoo! Messenger for Linux

    as of today it looks like even Pidgin is failing with the newest yahoo logon credential requirements.

    so its either the outdated abandonware (that you have to break up the .deb package and remove the dependency criteria in the control documents and get the libraries you can then repackage) or use the other alternatives.

    Its sad too because I have friends that refuse to use anything else BUT yahoo.

    nope, not gonna be able to be done, at least not the new version that works.

    Virtual box is the only option as of now, besides dual booting. in Wine it crashes, none of the programs mentioned support pc to pc calls, except maybe qnext but i havent really played with it enough to tell you yes or no.

    --UPDATE--
    In qnext i see the pc to pc call button, but i am unable to click it. It sees my input device though, so we're on the right track, i think the devs just need to update the protocol to match the newest from Yahoo.

    HINT HINT!


    Other than that, I cannot wait for the Summer of Code to finally pay off with pidgin audio/video support




    BTW The OP should mention in post #1 that it is not currently possible to voice at all (pc to pc or in chat room ive tried them all pidgin, gyachI, gyachE, ekiga, etc. the only one that seems to work is Skype.) with THIS howto.
