Unable to retrieve MSN Address Book

If you are using the FREE Instant Messenger Pidgin you may be getting this error message “Unable to retrieve MSN Address Book”
You can fix it by opening a Terminal and typing “install msn-pecan” without the quotes. Then restart Pidgin and go into your MSN account and change the protocol to WLM.
I found this at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pidgin/+bug/316252
