How to Install QQ and YY in Ubuntu


Hi all,

Because I am an English teacher in both YY and QQ I would like to be updated how to install QQ International and YY.
I yried it in many ways but was not able to find the good way.
Please explain in a step-way what to do.
Both those programs and the volunteerwork are the only reason to use W10.

Greetz and thanks on forehand.

It is probably helpful, if you would explicitly elaborate on this, to exclude that we repeat something that doesn’t work or maybe we can fix an error in your procedure.


Windows, Mac and Android support

Old Linuxmint, read LEDominator comment, bottom of page 2


As per Wikipedia, there is Pidgin plugin:

Have you tried using that?


Thanks for the answers until now.
Maybe it is a matter of not having enough knowledge or not how-to-handle this but I was not able to use the the google site.
Of course they have a lot of plugins, but I could not find the right one (will have a look on the great number of pages , ended on page 20) yet.
Also I find that I do not have enough knowledge of installing the different Ubuntu possibilities.
When I tried to the answer of the system was different but not hurrah Hans you did it.
So sorry to react like this.

Thannks again



Just saw that the plugin hasn’t been updated for last 8 years. Avoid using it.

Even Rambox and Franz don’t have support for YY and QQ.

You may contact the developers and see with them if they can provide this service in their next versions.
