Upgrade Pidgin to solve Yahoo messenger Issue

Regarding the previous post Solving Pidgin Yahoo Messenger Connection Problem , the temporary solution may not work anymore as Yahoo already upgraded their server to accept newer authentication mode.

The good news is, users can download the latest Pidgin release (2.5.7) in order to keep connected with Yahoo Messenger.

For Ubuntu users, Pidgin 2.5.7 is available for download from the Click-and-Run GetDeb.net portal. Just select Pidgin package, and choose to open it with gdebi.

Hopefully you can solve the Pidgin login problem through this post.
