    Default Google talk IM client?

    Hi
    I am using Kopete, but it doesn't seem to provide a Google talk login facility. Can I configure it for google talk or which alternate IM client should I use?

    I use pidgin in Ubuntu. Isnt it anyhow gnome dependent? I mean, if I install pidgin, will it need installion of gnome libraries (I use KDE3.5.9)

    You can configure it for google talk; at least I did over a year ago.

    I have since reinstalled, and don't use it, so I can't tell you how. I do remember that I googled the solution and found it pretty easily, though.

    Pidgin isn't Gnome dependant, it works perfectly on KDE.

    Thanks for that info. Since I am comfortable with pidgin, I'll install that too I guess.

    I use it with kopete 4.083 on KDE 3.5.9 and openSUSE 11. works like that:
    1. add a new account and select jabber protocol
    2. Jabber-ID: you@googlemail.com
    3. Connection tab: check all three checkboxes (i.e. use ssl, allow plain-text and override default server) and replace the servername with "talk.google.com". Port should be 5223...
    4. done
