There are a few options, one is to use yahoo messenger windows installer. It will install into linux with a program called wine. (Which is like a windows interface for linux) but, it might or might not work.

If it doesn't, then there are two other options, one is using a universal IM program like Pidgin or Empathy.

The other option is to use a "clone" type program that is build for linux to be an alternative to Yahoo! IM

The two I have found are Yux Gyachi.

I hope this helps you.

If You want to communicate, and don't use the "whistles and bells" You don't need "Yahoo messenger"
Download PIDGIN. It's multiplatform.

SOURCE: login messenger with out downloading messenger in system

Hi there,
One of the best sites which provide instant messaging capabilities is http://meebo.com
The site is able to emulate Yahoo Messenger quite well. It's not a perfect solution, but is one of the best you can get without installing Yahoo Messenger.

Best Regards, Traian

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.

Instal problem on ubuntu linux


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.
