I can't seem to be able to connect to google talk using either pidgin or empathy after upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 (fresh install).
I do not know why... empathy just writes "Connecting ..." forever and never connects. What can I do from there?
Google talk's web interface works just fine for me so I doubt it is a firewall issue.
EDIT: In fact sometimes it's able to connect (empathy), it just takes a LOOONG time (I'd say about 5 mins), longer than I am willing to wait. On the other hand, the web interface is able to connect in seconds.
