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.

My yahoo messenger is not opening but it running in the process


At first you should find the source of problem, yahoo messenger? OS? or maybe Server!
But I think it comes from your yahoo messenger, please remove and then re-install your yahoo messenger, if problem stay, check the other version of yahoo messenger.
By the way above, I think your problem will solve.
Other scenario:
Maybe you installed a software that make a conflict with your yahoo messenger and let it not to open, check that software! Remove the softwares that you installed these days.
Maybe your OS damaged, you know that if you run OS for too long times, it will dameged and you need to re-install it and fix the problems.So, if none of two ways above can't solve your problem, re-install your OS, but before that read the following note:
You can use some Optimize softwares for fix and make your OS optimize.like Symbian products.they could find the problem and fix them.So if this way couldn't help you either I suggest you to re-install the OS.
NOTE: Check your firewall, if you have firewall on your computer disable it and check runing the yahoo messenger maybe your firewall bothers your yahoo messenger!
Good luck

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.
