    I suggest using kopete
    Open a terminal
    Applications > Accessories > Terminal
    and run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install kopete
    You will have to enter your password which wont be displayed just type it in and hit Enter
    Then it will be in
    Applications > Internet > Kopete
    When you start it you can setup your YIM account.
    Or click on Settings > Configure > Add Account

    And I would recommend Pidgin..... to each his/her own.

    There are lots of IM programs for Ubuntu that are compatible with Yahoo IM. You will need to look at them and pick one because Yahoo IM does not work with WINE.

    Go to Accounts > Manage Accounts > Add > In 'Protocol' select Yahoo.
