Found a method using Pidgin here
Of course the problem with this method is that you have to install and run Pidgin...
Also I just realized that you can use Empathy as well, it just takes forever for it to log in... you just log in as you normally would with the Google Talk client, firstname.lastname@example.org then your password under the Google Talk option.
Or you can use this handy trick to do all you can do with google talk, audio/video chatting http://tutafuta.com/2011/05/25/how-to-use-gtalk-on-linux-or-mac/
Google talk and Google Apps are from the same stable and use the same Jabbar API to communicate. It does not matter if you have a google.com account or a hosted domain account. Both are equally supported by the following tools:
Just add a jabbar account and fill complete email address, password and enable TLS. Certificate check may fail, so you can set the options accordingly.
