is there any reason you can't use a native program? using crossover and such just makes thigns more painful than i should be. http://gaim.sf.net

Iam use kopete for now, but my client at my internet cafe is familiar with YM.
I want to migrating to Linux from Windows, but i don't want to disapointing my client because they so familiar with Windows...

Any solving?

Well, thats a tough one because if its not working with crossover office then its probably unsupported. You may try demonstrating kopete or gaim to your client, they are quite easy to grasp and I am sure that your client wouldn't find them too difficult to use.

There is always the YMessenger Linux version. It doesn't have all the features the windows version does but the layout is pretty much the same.
