Re: Not To Beat A Dead Bush But Holy Crap (yahoo)
As far as I know, nothing on Linux supports voice and video on Yahoo. Kopete supports video only. If Flash supports your webcam, you can do V&V on meebo.com. Or, get your friends to install Skype; you'll find that the audio and video quality are better, and you can do V&V cross platform including Linux.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
