:confused: I am new to Linux and have a new N800. I need help installing Pidgin. I want to use my yahoo chat on my n800. Or is there something better I could use?
I need simple layman instructions beginning to end.
Thanks to the brave soul that offers help.

Another thing..I can not get my gmail on my N800 to send mail to Yahoo. Any suggestions?
Try checking to download a plugin for gmail. The mail notifier.

when the Application Manager is open. Click on the title "Application manager" to display the applications menu (or press the menu hardware button)
Then select the Tools menu and then the Application Catalog... sub menu item

Ok got then into the application catalog but when it ask to refresh the list i click ok and it says unable to refresh list as shown. the web site told me On application manager's main screen, click "Browse installable applications". In the list that follows, find "instantmessaging" and click it.

says it is missing : libxau0

there are a few ways to get that file.
searching this forum found this post
I don't know if you need the red pill mode though. I know I didn't need to but I may have gotten libxau0 from some other place.

I went to the pidgin site and downloaded it there and it worked fine with yahoo. I did not need to go through all the steps that were on the link suggested. It is working.:)
Thanks for the help and replies.
Now my next thing is to get a keyboard that does not cost a fortune and install it. The Nokia keyboard is out of my price range. So i will probably need help again. Any suggestions on bluetooth stowaway keyboards that are compatible and cheep? Ease of pairing them is real important also. I know nothing about programing myself.:confused:
