I am new to ubuntu, and can't find Google talk for ubuntu, How can I use chat on orkut.com which uses GMail sign in programme and I use Google talk to chat on windows.


You can use Yahoo chat with Empathy. Simply go to Edit->Accounts then click 'Add...' and choose Yahoo as the protocol. You need to enter your Yahoo account details.

Add Yahoo account

  • I think empathy has this ability because under Advanced there is a 'Room List Locale' option. I can't test this because I don't have a Yahoo account. – dv3500ea Nov 13 '10 at 21:31

Empathy has Google Talk support. Start Empathy, click Edit -> Accounts, then Add. Choose Google Talk from the Protocol list.


I think Pidgin can do Yahoo Group Chat.
