Hello Iceman,

I'm using Debian also and downloaded the newest Gaim 0.75, haven't gotten Yahoo to connect though, kept getting Unable to Read error. All the others work great, MSN, ICQ, AIM Just wondered how you set yours up. This problem has occured with other IM's(Kopete, Ayttm) everything works except yahoo. Appreciate any ideas getting this to work, since I use Yahoo the most..

I think Yahoo Messenger no longer work in Gaim since yahoo changed the protocol and the Gaim developers still hacking it. So you have no choice but to use Yahoo messenger.
