Ok, The problem is not with pidgin nor with yahoo, Pidgin use to connect yahoo accounts flawlessly. Yahoo updated their protocol and pidgin stayed as it is, you need to tweak and install pidgin again. Follow this method :
Open terminal and in terminal type :
Code:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com \ 67265eb522bdd6b1c69e66ed7fb8bee0a1f196a8
Then type :
Code:
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
Then type :
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install pidgin
It will then download and install pidgin with the tweak...
