    Welcome to the forums!

    It's my understanding that there is no Linux package for gtalk yet, and that it doesn't work well under WINE.

    Perhaps someone will respond with a workable alternative for you.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    There is a browser-based gtalk "gadget" that will let you use it without the download installation.

    GTalk is not available for linux. You can using desktop clients like Pidgin, Kopete or empathy. Or use websites like meebo, ebuddy. Else you can chat from gmail web interface.

    Skype also works with Linux. You can chat or talk (audio and video) with that.
