    Re: Howto: Configure Pidgin for Google Talk

    Hi,
    i'm having the same problem has chipwhisperer,

    Server requires TLS/SSL for login. No TLS/SSL support found.

    i followed Elrohir advice and installed libnspr-dev, libssl-dev, and libnss-dev. I also installed openssl and gnutls-dev, but it still doesn't work.

    Any more ideas ?

    Thanks for the help

    I get this SSL handshake error too very often. But sometimes gtalk account works. I have the same problem when i connect to gtalk via pidgin on XP too. So i guess it has nothin to do with ubuntu. But the gtalk client works fine on XP.

    HOT TO FIX THE TLS ERROR FOR GOOGLE TALK IN PIDGIN!

    In a couple of Really Easy Steps:

    Since there is no Pidgin Package for Ubuntu yet, I assume you are already building from the source.

    do 'make clean' if you have already built it and you get the error.

    Open Synaptic Package Manager, search for and install 'libgnutls-dev'

    When you run ./configure to build Pidgin, do './configure --enable-gnutls=yes', then look for
    SSL Library/Libraries......... : GnuTLS
    when it finishes.

    do sudo make install (as normal) to finish.

    You're Welcome.

    Is there a way to send files from pidgin gtalk to people using the official gtalk client? What about the other way?

    Great suggestion for how to build the install. Without that switch it wasn't working for me. Thanks!
