Question #43524 on pidgin in ubuntu changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Tang proposed the following answer:
Hi Wininda,
I just checked my default Ubuntu Pidgin 2.4.3 with ADSL connection and it connected to yahoo messenger and downloaded the original friends list ok. ( I haven't used messenger for years)

I was also able to access (Australian) yahoo web messenger with Firefox

Unless you know more than I do, why not go to
System/Administration/Synaptic Package Manager, type pidgin in the
search box, then completely remove pidgin before a fresh reinstall.
Please be sure you right click when marking pidgin for reinstall, to be
sure you have all recommended and suggested files.

Hope that gets you chatting :)
