just reading through their forums, it looks like even though they claim to have voice chat, it doesn't really work well, if at all. i tried installing yahoo chat with wine, but it needs internet explorer and activeX, and i don't want to put those on my computer. gl

So, can anyone tell me which package do I need to install to fix this problem?

You could also try gyachi, which is an improved version of phrozensmoke's gyach:
