but i can't use my web cam in Ubuntu and i want to use yahoo messager in ubuntu hardy or suggestion.. Please help me..
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so its either the outdated abandonware (that you have to break up the .deb package and remove the dependency criteria in the control documents and get the libraries you can then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.
what's your location? i too could not log in to Yahoo, but there web messenger seems to be connecting and half of my contacts is online too, so this may have something to do with we are at.
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.6
when i tried this command, i get like this,
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package libssl0.9.6
what i want to do?
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.
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.
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.
