Unhappy Unable to open Yahoo! chatrooms in Pidgin, Gyachi, KDE chat client ....

Until recently I used to be able to connect to Yahoo chat rooms in pidgin without any problems. But now I am unable to do so, and not just in pidgin. I have tried almost every client out there, and everything else works except the chatroom thing.

In pidgin for example, when I press Ctrl+C a pop up opens asking for the name of the chat room. I enter the name and press join, the popup closes and nothing happens. Same for when I click join in the room list window.

Does this happen to anybody else? Any suggestions are welcome.

Doesn't work for me either.

Kopete Version 1.2.3

Pidgin 2.10.6

This is probably the reason:

Yahoo! Messenger Public Chat Rooms

The Yahoo! Messenger Public Chat Rooms will close down on December 14, 2012.


chat rooms, pidgin, yahoo
