    You'd probably be better off just using a Linux IM client that supports the Yahoo protocol, since most "official" Linux messaging clients from people like AOL and Yahoo are half-cocked and buggy attempts to just say "we've got a Linux client, now leave us alone." I recommend GAIM or Kopete.

    Thumbs up Yap GAIM :)

    Out of these 2, GAIM is better. It has a MultiMessenger feature so you don't need to log off your user so that, let's say, your sister can use it .

    I've got so used to it I even usethe windows version sometimes...

    got to reply...yes i ended up settling on gaim 1.5.?
    gaim 2 seems a bit limited in some ways...
    kopete was what i was using but not bothered with it now...

    now about sisters...hmmm...i wouldnt let her near my pc...
    as for my pc, my ex b/f wouldnt even touch it...but i have fixed his a few times...
    i'm the linux geek and they all use windows....
    they havent converted yet but i think they just dont listen to me...
    too use to me carrying on about pc's...goes in one ear and out the other...
    my son loves linux so thats a bonus...when he's older, i dont know how he will be with teachers in his computer class's, probably tell them...lol...
    thanks for the replies....
