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.

Your computer is not connected to the network when cam talk

In order to use the video call feature both parties have to be in Yahoo Messenger 10.
If you both have Yahoo you can use the webcam
If you are cross chatting - eg Messenger X MSN, only basic IM will be available

Im downloading the new version of yahoo messenger 10 and its taking a long time to download and i wanan talkto my friends also

I'm not sure if you are talking about needing your phone line or wanting to use yahoo to talk to friends, but this gives answers to both. If you want to use the phone and your have a dial up modem, set the download to run overnight.

when you click to download messenger, choose the "save" option. Make sure that you save it where you can find it again. Drop the arrow down and choose to save on your desktop for instance. There is no reason that you can't have yahoo open while you download.

When the download is all finished, close the version of yahoo that you are using and double click on the icon for the yahoo 10. It will open the installation wizard and install.

On the bottom left of the popup that opens when you select download, there should be a check box that says close when download finishes. Put a check in the box if you let it run all night.

My web cam

To super-size (or minimize) your webcam image, click Messenger and select "My Webcam."
Click Messenger again, and this time select Preferences.
At the top of the window that opens, click Camera Settings, where you can adjust the size of the image.
If you want to change image size for only one session:
Start your webcam by clicking Messenger, then My Webcam.
In the window that opens, click Webcam, then Image Size. You can pick Small or Large.
