I know the official AIM client on Windows lets you have an audio chat with users of iChat AV or AIM Mac, but I don't know if the official AIM client for Linux can do this. It can't hurt to try, and if it doesn't maybe you can use Wine to run the official AIM Windows client on Linux.

(c:/program files/aim) to my Hard Disk and wine aim.exe it?

I myself use Mac OS X and not Linux so I couldn't really help you beyond that, but did you try the official AIM client for Linux (not Windows version through Wine, the native Linux version)?

It doesn't have the audio bit!

Ok, you'll have to use Wine. As I said I don't run Linux so I can't try these things, just reply based on what I've read. If "wine aim.exe" is the same syntax as what you use to launch apps with Wine then I assume it will work. It can't hurt to try.

Shoudl I download the installer and install it with wine?
Or copy an already installed versiona dn try to run it?

Thanks
Riddick,

and thanks macskeeball for all the help!
