How to install msn instant messenger onto ubuntu?

Q. I just recently got ubuntu and i am having problems installing and downloading files, Does anyone have any clue how to download MSN messenger on ubuntu? When i try the regular way it says i dont have the right stuff to do it, i have hear about doing it using linux wine. but i dont know how to do that, helP!!!!

A. Hey there!

The problem is, Windows Live Messenger doesn't work proporly in Wine yet, So you have two options.

1) Use Pidgin, It's MSN and it comes with Ubuntu! To get to it go to Applications, Internet, Pidgin Instant Messenger and follow the instructions

2) You can get aMSN, It's more MSN Like and supports Webcam. You can install it by Clicking Applications, Accessories, Terminal and copying and pasting the following in:

gksu apt-get install amsn

Then pressing enter. When you are back at the command line (After all the text has finished flashing up), Close your terminal and go to Applications, Internet, aMSN.

Hope I helped! Ubuntu 4eva!

A. as far as i know wine is what u use for installing software not drivers. you should use ndiswrapper or make sure you're using a distro with the latest stable kernel release... linux seems to be getting better all the time with oob wireless support, you just need to stay updated.
try sabayon 3.5 with kde, very easy to use gentoo based distro with everything installed (including wine and ndiswrapper) and hopefully it will recognize your card with no hassle...
