    Question Google Hangout crashes on openSUSE 13.1

    I can't get http://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangout to work. It always crashes in Chromium or Firefox no matter what version of the browser. There is no error message except a top bar saying the plugin crashed. I can't see any logs nor submit an error report. Does anyone know a workaround? Is there an alternative available? Something that is Open Source and can be fixed would be best.

    It worked just fine in 12.3 and Ubuntu users seem to have no trouble.

    you need the plugin for video chat from within gmail.

    Having said that, I have absolutely no problem with the plugin on openSUSE 13.1 x86_64 in either Firefox or Chromium.

    remove it and then go into

    ~/.config/

    and delete the google-googletalkplugin folder

    try reinstalling then

    also try disabling all addons in firefox in case there is a conflict (although seems unlikely if it also crashes in Chromium)

    google talk and hangouts are the same thing. It has just been renamed very recently.
    The plugin/extension is for the os, not the browser. It works across all browsers (or should)

    edit: oh, I see what you mean.
    This, right?
    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ihapd?hl=en-GB

    I've never tried it so not sure what it is like.
