Fixing yahoo problems in pidgin

July 24, 2009 by

The past few days i faced a problem with pidgin that it works with my msn e-mails and gmail e-mails but the problem was with yahoo.

Yahoo! Inc. did something to its messenger servers, something that practically blocked all the Linux IM clients, such as Pidgin, Kopete, Empathy or GyachI.Yahoo! changed the login method! However, at this moment none of the aforementioned Instant Messenger clients for Linux can connect with the Yahoo protocol.

i searched for the solution of this problem and finally found it 😀 , then let’s fix this problem !

the solution was in the latest version of pidgin 2.5.7

1) download this key and save it in your Desktop

2) go to [System >> Administration >> Software Sources], enter your password and press [Third Party Software] tab

3) then add this line according your ubuntu distribution

Ubuntu 9.04

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

Ubuntu 8.10

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main

4) go to [Authentication] tab and press [Import Key File] button and choose the key file in your Desktop

5) close window and preess [Reload]

6) and then [ System >> Administration >> Update Manager]

Enjoy your time 😀

Nvidia is not working

January 5, 2009 by

yeah … sometimes kmod-nvidia conflicts with other packages

so you can’t install it directly

even when you go to nvidia site and try to install it to your linux, you’ll be disappointed because compiz and other 3d effects won’t work perfectly

so you’ll have to install the “akmod-nvidia” package

first, know what’s your kernel version by typing:

#uname -r

then install nvidia

for redhat based:

#yum install akmod-nvidia-#kernel number

in ubuntu:

apt-get install akmod-nvidia-#kernel number

note that the bold words are comments

you can try using:

yum install akmod-nvidia-$(uname -r)

instead of the two lines above (but i didn’t test this one)
