Aim, Yahoo, Msn


Finally got the Verizon DSl to work. On Windows I use "trillian". For Linux I download the gaim and installed. However, I figure out that Gaim doesn't support Yahoo and MSN. I download another program for Linux "Everybuddy" but it doesn't work. So What pogram for linux suppor AIM, MSN and Yahoo.

Thanks a lot

GAIM does support Yahoo and MSN, what you need to do is go to the account preferences and add the protocol for Yahoo and MSN. I use gaim for MSN all the time....

Check this link.... GAIM

I read before the link http://gaim.sourceforge.net/protocol.php#yahoo but the section for Yahoo is empty.


Thanks
