Pidgin and Google Talk

Problem:
Trying to add a google talk account on pidgin. As I prefer to use my mail client to look at my emails and not the browser.

Solution:
This took up quite a bit of my morning 😦

1. I installed pidgin via synaptic.
2. Followed instructions from google support, https://support.google.com/a/answer/49147?hl=en which did not work.
3. Made the following changes that finally worked.

Connection Security : “Use old-style SSL”
Connect port : 5223
Connect sever : talk.google.com
