Hi Melissa,

How are you?

I quite understand the situation you are in. Perhaps, many would say that Linux is the best operating system and Ubuntu as its best version.

It is true that there have been many application programs and software developed for this OS yet, those programs which were designed originally for Windows will have some compatibility issues when it is being tried to install in the different OS.

I have browsed a link where you can try to download and install the messenger. The page does provide you with the step by step process. Click the link.

You can also use the Facebook Messenger for Linux. It’s easy to connect with friends now using this. Please visit the site below for information.


I hope this helps you.

All the best,

Hi Mellisa,

MSN Live Messenger is originally developed for Windows and Mac platforms. There’s no official MSN Live messenger compatible with Ubuntu Linux. But there are some programs developed for Ubuntu Linux that you can use to log in to your MSN messenger account. One program is Emescene.

It’s a very simple and easy to use application. However the drawback of this program is that it doesn’t support video chatting. Here’s the link if you’re interested, Emescene the best Msn Messenger.

Another program you can use is aMSN, it is similar to Emescene but the advantage of it is that it supports video chatting. Here’s the link for it, aMSN is a free open source MSN Messenger clone.

Now if you really want to use the MSN Live Messenger application itself, there’s a way to do it however it won’t be that easy.

You can refer to this link for the tutorial, tutorial MSN Live Messenger.

Hope this helps you Mellisa.
