    Go to Add/remove programs and search for pidgin, unless you have a particular reason to use aMSN?

    OK fair enough, you can install aMSN by either going to the terminal and typing
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install amsn
    or go to add / remove in the ubuntu "Applications" menu (top left of your screen) choose "show all available applications" from the drop down box, choose "reload" when prompted, then search for amsn, tick the box under application and choose apply changes.
