    But it does leave me without a way to fire back SMS to her phone from ubuntu.
    how about, letting her create another YM account, make that account as one of your buddy list, and let that account log in to "mobile"?

    1. Install libssl0.9.6 through Synaptic or
    2. Download this file from messenger.yahoo.com.

    3. In a terminal, write:
    replacing path with the path to where you downloaded the file.

    4. Run /usr/bin/ymessenger and follow the few simple instructions for setting up Yahoo! Messenger. An icon will be placed on your desktop.
    I downloaded libssl0.9.6 and tried to install it as follow and got an error message:
    root@ubuntu8:/home/wstay/Desktop# apt-get install libssl0.9.6_0.9.6a-1_arm.ipk
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package libssl0.9.6_0.9.6a-1_arm.ipk
    root@ubuntu8:/home/wstay/Desktop#

    Could you please help out with this and I could not see or find the partition E: in my computer?

    Hello Linbetwin
    I don't know exactly your problem already fix or not.
    but I used Ubuntu 8.04, there are pidgin on it.
    I found that it's very easy to use, it's multi protocol.

    but there are some bugs I think, because I couldn't connect to my Yahoo,
    then I change into it's IP address
    Then OK ^^

    As long as you have Pidgin then you are able to login to your Yahoo Messenger with no problems.

    That's the point! Recently (July2009) Yahoo system is not accepting some "old protocols" for connection with yahoo messenger, thus, Pidgin is not connecting aMSN doesn't connect to yahoo or other protocols but MSN.
    I run the Y-m installer with wine. It did install smoothly but it doesn't connect, either .

    However, Kopete stills connects... but it has to install some KDE stuff on your Gnome-Ubuntu (no big deal).

    Some people might say "Why do you want yahoo messenger, or anything else 'window$ world' like on your Ubuntu?" And I may say: why not!? Linux is freedom to choose and use what you want or need! and for the Yahoo-mail users, the Y-messenger is quite useful and fun!
    Programers keep inventing different messengers... please, revive the old Yahoo messenger for *nix!!!

    Cheers!

    Can this older version of YM support calling phones using Yahoo Voice?
