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

In the advanced tab,

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)

In the proxy tab,

No proxy.

I had used these same settings on 12.04 and it had worked like a charm.

Any help will be appreciated.

    Are you using two-factor auth? Do you need to create an app-specific password? – fluffy Sep 14 '13 at 6:20

Use the following setting and check if it works:

Connection Security : "Use old-style SSL"
     Connect port   : 5223
     Connect sever  : talk.google.com
0

Mine works with the following differences:

  • Resource: blank
  • Domain: google.com (unless you are running your own XMPP server on your domain)
  • Connect server: blank
  • Proxy type: Use Gnome Proxy Setting
-1

I had the same problem. I edited the /etc/environment as

http_proxy=http://<username>:<password>@<proxy_address>:<proxy_port>

and in pidgin, used as use environment variables

-2

Mind I am using the same

  1. go to the file

  2. go to account 3 go to buddy account

then add/edit and then later

it should look like this

same with the first answers

Protocol : XMPP Username : **** Domain : ********.com Resource : Home In the advanced tab,

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) In the proxy tab,

No proxy.

then after that you are done
