I ask you to suggest any Jabber client, which support Gtalk XEP-136 extension. This extension allows you to access the latest messages stored on the server. For example, I talk to someone through Gtalk on my phone, then open Jabber client on my computer and can see the last N (default 10) messages in the conversation.

I know only one application with this feature, and it is Google Talk, but it have not a native version for Ubuntu/Linux.

You can install Gajim from universe:

Even if it supports XEP 136, it doesn't load messages from server. Unfortunately, it's not, what I'm looking for, but anyway thanks for your option. – titusjaka Mar 24 '13 at 17:59

This Google Talk feature is not XEP-0136, it's proprietary extension without support outside official client.
