Google Talk plugin on Chromium
« on: August 04, 2014, 04:30:37 am »
I am trying to install the google talk plugin so that i can do google hangouts. I have it installed via dpkg and i can find it at /opt/google/talkplugin but chromium doesn't detect it. Firefox on the other hand does detect it. Any ideas on how to get chromium to detect the plugin?

Hi zntneo, how's it going and welcome to Peppermint.  While in Chromium/Chrome open the webstore or, enter the following into the search field.

Tip: To reduce typographical errors, click on, Code: [Select] to highlight contents before copying  and pasting them.

Code: [Select]
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/apps
Enter, google talk launcher into the search box and hit enter.  You can install it from the Extentions.  After installation you may have to close all instances of Chromium/Chrome and relaunch.  Google Hangout should be visible in the top right side of your browser. I hope this helps, have fun  ;)!

What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep google-talk
and if you run Chromium then put this:

chrome://plugins/

in Chromiums address bar and hit enter .. is "Google Talk" listed ?
