    your ubuntu may have a messenger client already installed that works with yahoo, pidgin for example comes with some ubuntu installs. have a look into the "start menu" and see if you can find pidgin if you do, then you can use it to sign into yahoo and you don't need to install yahoo messenger.

SOURCE: 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.

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the valusoft offering appears to be ubuntu 8.04 which is way out of date as we're on 10.10 which is the latest stable release and includes a software installer.

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.
