This simple and brief tutorial is going to show you how to install Gyachi Yahoo! client in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail via the ppa repository.
GyachE Improved (GyachI) is a fork from Gyach Enhanced Yahoo! client for Linux operating systems. This Yahoo! client supports almost all of the features you would expect to find on the official Windows Yahoo! client: Voice chat, webcams, faders, ‘nicknames’, audibles, avatars, display images, and more. Yet, it remains very light-weight and memory-friendly.
NOTE: The latest version of Gyachi was released on 2011-09-03, so it may or may not work. Use it at your own risk!
There’s a PPA repository contains the latest Gyachi packages for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid and higher.
To add the ppa, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal. When it opens, run below commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adilson/experimental
Then you can update your system package lists and install it via:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gyachi
Run gyachi command to launch it first time, then click its icon and choose “lock to launcher”.
