How to have a MSN clone in fedora?
How to install AMSN messenger?
How to install AMSN messenger plugins?

As you might noticed, I have been up and running for this month's blog, trying to atleast have major install howtos of these mostly used linux X apps.

One main reason I for this is to avoid audience blogshock attacks and linux-scare-away tendencies specially for newbies and noobs. I hope you all enjoy reading these short install howtos. Do not worry, as we go along, we would be covering more and more, having deeper and wider blogging scale of this linux OS - Fedora distro most of the time.

Now, back to AMSN project.

AMSN is simply a free open source MSN Messenger clone, with features such as:

* Display pictures
* Custom emoticons
* Multi-language support (around 40 languages currently supported)
* Webcam support
* Sign in to more than one account at once
* Full-speed File transfers
* Group support
* Normal, and animated emoticons with sounds
* Chat logs
* Timestamping
* Event alarms
* Conferencing support
* Tabbed chat windows


# yum -y install amsn amsn-plugins

Launch: Ctrl+F2, amsn

Setting up AMSN is really easy. At first, it would prompt you for existing MSN account and your current password during the initial startup like so:

Simply enter your hotmail account and current hotmail password.

Works like a charm!
