Thanks for choosing fixya.com

WIndows based apps will not run in linux without the use of an emulator. Even then most of the messenger apps do not work properly.

Your best bet is to use an alternative messenger that will allow you to still talk to all of your friends. In ubuntu if you goto the "Add new software" section and search for "instant messenger" you should be able to download several IM program that will work with yahoo, msn, icq, and all the rest.

Ubuntu also offers a few extensive community forum where a lot of these questions have already been answered for your convenience.

Hope this helps you, feel free to ask further if needed.

How can I download and open to install Yahoo messenger please?


empathy for ubuntu works with most messenger formats including yahoo. empathy is installed along with linux on ubuntu 10.10 so may already be installed on your system. ubuntu 10.10 is free and I guess you must now be out of your 60 day included support.
you might want to check out the ubuntu forums on the correct syntax to download and install programs in ubuntu
http://ubuntuforums.org/
the valusoft offering appears to be ubuntu 8.04 which is way out of date as we're on 10.10 which is the latest stable release and includes a software installer.

Why i cant install messenger to my pc.. Linux ubuntu is my windows


Hello,
First of all, the programs made for windows can't be run on Ubuntu because Linux based operating system don't execute *.exe files.
Messenger programs like Pidgin, skype are already added in the repository of Ubuntu. You can select from the software management menu and install. Besides, you can also download the sources (tar balls) of various other messengers written fir Linux distributions, compile them and install. You need just to search on Google for all available messengers for Ubuntu.
It is advisable that you download a Debian package of the software because it is just like Windows .exe file to install it. Just, a click.
Let me know if you need any other help regarding installation of softwares on Linux.
We are always available for your help.

Regards.
