A couple days ago i have a problem connecting to Yahoo Messanger using Pidgin 2.5.5. I thougt that there were something wrong with my network. But i tried using original Yahoo Messanger, it works. So i know that my networks is fine, but not my Pidgin. Then i try to google it, and i found that Yahoo upgrade their server to new version. That’s why my pidgin 2.5.5 couldn’t connect.
Then i browse to pidgin official website, then wow… They have a new version that is Pidgin v2.5.7 that fixed for Yahoo problem. You can upgrade your Pidgin by using this command (this is for Ubuntu):
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 67265eb522bdd6b1c69e66ed7fb8bee0a1f196a8 echo deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu `lsb_release --short --codename` main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pidgin-ppa.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
For other operating system you can get it here.
That’s it. Have a nice day…
