I can't believe I'm raising this question after years, but after a fresh installation of Ubuntu 12.10, I'm unable to connect Pidgin to Google Talk.
I use a Google Apps domain name, and the settings that I'm using are :
Protocol : XMPP Username : **** Domain : ********.com Resource : Home
Connection security : Require encryption. UNCHECK Allow plaintext auth over unencrypted steams Connect port : 5222 Connect sever : talk.google.com File transfer proxies : proxy.eu.jabber.org Bosh URL : (blank)
I had used these same settings on 12.04 and it had worked like a charm.
Any help will be appreciated.
