    Re: Howto: Configure Pidgin for Google Talk

    I think I have the same problem. I'm running gutsy from a fiesty upgrade. Trying to setup a googletalk account, and the message I get is "Not authorized". I'm runing pidgin 2.2.1 and going to upgrade it to 2.2.2
    Some help please.

    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.

    Re: Howto: Configure Pidgin for Google Talk

    The above all seems to refer to a previous version of Ubuntu so I am wondering if it is relevant to my problem. I am running 8.04 and cannot get the pidgin to work with Google talk...I have followed the set up instructions for Google Talk but I get

    XXX@gmail.com/Home disabled
    Not Authorised

    I have tried re-enable and modify account...but still get the same message.

    Don't add the .gmail.com to your user name it adds it automagically so if you add it it will be username@gmail.com.gmail.com

    Re: Howto: Configure Pidgin for Google Talk

    I had this working just fine for a long time, but as of some recent upgrades, it has stopped connecting -- there were some recent changes to the openssl iirc, and I've also upgraded to Heron although I think this
    was broken before then.

    is there some sort of certificate that i need to refetch or regenerated?
