Question #36928 on pidgin in ubuntu changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Saša Teković proposed the following answer:
I'm not sure what went wrong with your Pidgin installation, but try
doing the following: quit Pidgin > go to your home folder and delete
".purple" folder (where Pidgin stores your personal settings).

This folder is hidden so if you are using Nautilus, you'll need to press
Ctrl+H to view hidden files and folders.

After you have deleted that folder, start Pidgin and try to configure
your YIM account. I hope it works for you ;-)
