    What is this Dependency Problem.
    I got the following Error while installing yahoo messanger.
    What could be the solution or the alternatives for this.

    server02:/tmp# dpkg --install ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb
    (Reading database ... 126743 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace ymessenger 1.0.4_1 (using ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement ymessenger ...
    dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of ymessenger:
    ymessenger depends on libgdk-pixbuf2 (>= 0.13.0); however:
    Package libgdk-pixbuf2 is not installed.
    ymessenger depends on libglib1.2 (>= 1.2.0); however:

    The nice thing about Debian is that there is always an app that will do what's needed. You don't need to install the Yahoo IM app. Pidgin and a few others will do just nicely. They can connect to Yahoo and AOL and many other IM chat programs. Try Pidgin before you install another outside app.

    I agree with Loopback, Pidgin will probably be a better idea but just in case you want to know, you need to install the packages listed above for ymessenger to work.

    From the command line, as root: apt-get install libgdk-pixbuf2. Move on to the next file needed: apt-get install libglib1.2 , and so on. Or use Synaptic to search and install those needed files. Just remember that version 1.2 of whatever file just might not be available for your Debian version. That's why I recommend Pidgin or one of the many other IM apps.

    One of the reasons I love Debian so is because it's so easy to install the needed app or program. God bless Debian's package manager!!! I NEVER install apps using tarballs. Never. Mater of fact, I hate tarballs. If one is using the Debian OS, no need to do it other than the accepted Debian way. And installing Debian apps/Programs. There, I said it. And I'm sticking to my story.

    thanx
    I have installed pidgin using the command
    apt-get install pidgin

    and then run with the comand
    /usr/bin/pidgin
    then using
    BuddyList --> Accounts --> Manage
    I added one account
    I successfully logged for the google talk but There is no option for the yahoo messanger in the Protocol selection
    Now how can I connect to the yahoo messanger?

    There should be some tab that lets you connect to Yahoo, or any other IM chat. I've done it. Look around. Of course you'll have to input your user name and password.

    Just type:

    "apt-get install -f"

    as a root. That should resolve all the dependency problems with the current installation.

    After that you should be able to install your .deb file with the:
    "dpkg -i ymessenger_1.0.4_1_i386.deb"

    The Yahoo messenger is ancient. if you are running stable install pidgin from backports.

    instructions [Debian Backports]

    if you are running KDE kopete works well.

    You can also use Bitlbee with any irc client.
