Question #43524 on pidgin in ubuntu changed:

David Hugh-Jones proposed the following answer:
Yup, on the System menu->=Admin->Synaptic Package Manager

search for libdbus-1-3

when you find it, rightclick on it and select "install"

click apply and follow the instructions.

If it's already installed, then you need the source package.

To be blunt though: don't run before you can walk. Installing stuff from
source is not easy, it is really something for experts. I've used Linux
for years and out of bitter experience, I do as little as possible to
change my system from the standard defaults. Could you tell us why
pidgin 2.4 didn't work for you? And maybe tell us a bit more about
Yahoo! Messenger for Ubuntu and why that doesn't seem to be working?
