    Gtalk isnt working with wine well, though i have worked much on it.
    Im able to log in and see the font. edit the settings. I havent updated the Wine AppDB yet. Im sure I can use voice chat soon.

    I tell notify you as soon as i get update on this.

    mean while you can use IM clients like Pidgin/Kopete



    EDIT:

    Ok, I made it work completely. Yes completely.

    Just need to do some more tests. will update soon.

    I'm using Linux Mint 6. on XFCE,
    I got fluxbox, XFCE, KDE, E17, Gnome, IceWM installed on my box.
    If you are new to linux dont try installing that much it needs lot configuration. so all of them don't mess with each other, specially menus.

    Its XFCE in screenshot.

    * I'm able to do normal chat on Gtalk.
    few problems are still there.
    * I can call, but I cant accept incoming call its a bug.
    gnome-network-manager gives trouble to connect gtalk/wine [not in all cases]. ( so use wicd or something else)
    * Can also send voice mails.
    * Linux to Linux call doesnt work because on both side you cant accept incoming call.
