    The Google Talk program does not have an installer for Ubuntu, so you cannot use it.

    You can use Google Voice and Video Chat as arochester suggests.

    I would suggest that you use Empathy, which is installed by default on Ubuntu, and which will bring you all the functionality of Google Talk and Google Voice and Video Chat.

    Yes, you can do that. You don't have to be using the same chat program to talk to each other So, you can use Empathy and your friend can use Google Talk.

    You can use Google Talk with Wine, but it's somewhat buggy.
