hw to use yahoo messenger if possible

Postby dutch1 on Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:31 am

Helo all,

Sometimes I would like to use Yahoo messenger with e.g. the webcam.
Any help available?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Either reboot in Windows, or install Windows in VirtualBox...

In plain old Linux, I would recommend using Pidgin for text messenging with Yahoo users, and switch to Skype for video-conversations...

Kopete will work with a webcam and Yahoo as long as you install the libjasper1 package from Synaptic. You may wish to consider that option.
