I am in search of a messenger client that supports webcam on linux, does one exist? I tried pidgin and looked through addons for it but couldn't find one. I am using Ubuntu 9.04.

thanks a lot! it works good! – Thomas Chadwick Jul 29 '09 at 3:48

Personally I think they are all crap. Not very stable, not documented well, no meaningful error messages... But if you must, have a look at Just don't say I didn't warn you. Also, there's skype for linux and aMSN might or might not work, too.
