[QUOTE=fozzie54;4363312Does anybody use a program in Linux that can do this...if before you used YM and are now converted ...I would be grateful to know of a similar program to Yahoo Messenger..../QUOTE]
Your message wasn't quite clear, but there is Pidgin for not only Yahoo, but other IM services. If you want voice chat, there is Skype for Linux, available from Skype, and also Ekiga. I use Skype w/LM10, but it's not perfect because the video keeps flickering. Glad you are having such good results. Wish I was still on your side of the world.
