    HOWTO: Install Yahoo! Messenger for Linux

    Edit: bodhi.zazen ~ Please take note that this how to was written in 2005 and *may* be outdated. In addition Ubuntu now includes applications by default ( Ubuntu and Xubuntu = Pidgin ; Kubuntu = Kopete) that will access the Yahoo network (so not need to install the Yahoo client).

    1. Install libssl0.9.6 through Synaptic or
    sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.6
    2. Download this file from

    3. In a terminal, write:
    sudo dpkg -i /path/ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb
    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.
