    What do you mean by "not working"? Does the program not open? Do you get an error when you try to connect to a chat service?

Goto into a terminal and type
sudo apt-get remove pidgin
sudo apt-get --purge pidgin
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pidgin

That should completely remove pidgin and re-install it. G'luck!!

hi

memory dump is the result of bad memory module (RAM).. remove the ram modules, look at them, make sure they are same make and part. different manufactures can often cause memory fault in a system

if that's the case, replace the memory modules . you can go to the link below and select the model you have, go to KEYWORD selection, and select MEMORY DIMM, it will then give you the part number you need to replace .

if you need more help, please don't hesitate to issue 4 thumbs and i will give you further details and cost of the modules. you can easily purchase at a link i will issue at that time.

How to install yahoo messenger in ubuntu linux 9.4


There is no official release of Yahoo Messenger for Linux anymore. However, you can chat with your friends who use Yahoo Messenger by using a Linux chat client such as Empathy or Pidgin, both of which are available in the Ubuntu software center.

Install yahoo masenger for linuk ubuntu


download pidgin

Yahoo Instant Messenger isn't directly available on Linux. However there are several alternatives.
You can use free Pidgin software on Linux. In addition to supporting Yahoo Messenger, it supports AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, MSN IM, Bonjour, Gadu Gadu, GroupWise, IRC, QQ, SILC, SIMPLE, Sametime, Zephyr and all XMPP protocol compliant instant messengers. It was previously known as GAIM. I use it and I strongly recommend it.
An online alternative to Pidgin is Meebo. I prefer Pidgin because I don't have to keep my browser open all the time.
Note: Don't take this post to mean that I am recommending Yahoo Messenger for your IM needs as there are some teething problems with Yahoo Messenger.

Server authentication problem


I had this problem some time ago and could never figure out if it was a bug in gtalk or the server was simply overloaded.
My work-around was to use pidgin instead of login in directly to gtalk.

Try it out and see if that solves your problem.
  1. Download pidgin here.
  2. After you downloaded and installed it, visit this thread about how to use Google Talk with pidgin.
Hope it helps and if it did, let me know! If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Yahoo will not finish installing


This is a ambiguous error with the new Y! Messenger 9.0 as stated by the messenger team here: http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2009/01/20/trouble-installing-yahoo-messenger-90/ . I would just go download 8.0/1 or even better go with open source and get Pidgin ( http://www.pidgin.im/ - great piece of software). The messenger blog says they need contributions into fixing the issue. Good luck.
