Install Gyachi in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring via PPA

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!

Install Gyachi:

Then you can update your system package lists and install it via:

Run gyachi command to launch it first time, then click its icon and choose “lock to launcher”.
