    Yahoo changed the logon protocol

    I fixed my Pidgin installation on Ubuntu 9.04 by following the instructions on this page

    No it's not the servers, it's Yahoo. They are tightening up the system.

    Re: kopete and pidgin not connecting to yahoo

    I've reinstalled pidgin 2.5.8 from Launchpad PPA after uninstalling the Pidgin from the repositories.

    I'm still getting a 1013 error when I try to connect to Yahoo. I can connect to Yahoo through the web, so that's not the problem.

    Any other ideas?

    If you've updated pidgin to resolve the recent connection issue, go into pidgin accounts ... remove your yaHoo account and recreate it. Even after upgrade, pidgin tends to retain old connection info.

    At least, that's what fixed it for me.
