Hi,

i was just wondering if anyone already tested the new gtalk linux client ?

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Phoronix/~3/eHsxLtmO2V0/vr.php

It's only a deb with a couple of libs in it for now, but maybe it can work on gentoo also?

Doesn't Pidgin already support video chat over XMPP?

well within jabber yes.. maybe but never really consistent ...never got it working because of some errors in video codecs and/or pidgin.
As far as i can see the above is a plugin for browsers like firefox/xulrunner/iceweasel..

I installed the Debian amd64 package in Firefox and Chromium (both report plugins are enabled correctly) but it contains a 32-bit program (plugins, the .so, are indeed 64-bit build), which is required for plugins to communicate with, I could not use it because my system is a pure 64-bit not multilib. I really believe you can run it on Gentoo if you have a 32-bit system (Google does give 32-bit package, right?) or a 64-bit multilib.

wouldn't nspluginwrapper be a solution? where did you put the files?
opt/google -> /opt/google
usr/lib/firefox -> /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox

anything else? what about the xulrunner*-files?

I don't know can nspluginwrapper wrap a program? That program is not a ns plugin. I think it resides outside of browser domain. Have you tried to install that package since you already peek into it? It's not hard to install manually, here is what I did.

Edit: I just checked nspluginwrapper's ebuild, it has app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-xlibs dependency. So, pure 64-bit has no way to run it, end of story. And I don't think you will need the nspluginwrapper since the plugins are already 64-bit. The 32-bit program should have no problem to be brought up by the 64-bit plugins as long as you are using multilib profile.

thx for the link!

No doesn't seem to work, as soon as i copy the stuff to the plugin-directory i get some ld-inconsitency-errors...

Itested it on ubuntu, it depends on glew, but it worked fine after downloading the libglew-deb.

guess we'll have to wait for google to fix that mess

The file dates are 8/31, seems so. But the plugins crashed my FF4 beta 6pre. Anyways, it still won't work for me (non-multilib) because `GoogleTalkPlugin` is still a 32-bit program.
