I'm fairly certain the default chat client that's installed on 9.10 is Pidgin. Either that, or the following ubuntu release. – Force Flow Aug 18 '10 at 17:25
I don't know, I'm not using Ubuntu. Pidgin does that work. Alazar doesn't have specified other than what, I thought other than the Windows version. – cYrus Aug 18 '10 at 18:01
