Sympathy on Empathy

Hi All,

As many of you know, actually you may not know that there is no Google Talk for Linux. The story gets worse - since Google Talk does not work fine on even the latest WINE (Windows Emulator).

Alright people can argue that they can chat by logging to Gmail on their browsers.

But what if you want to do voice chat??????

Ok here comes "Empathy Messenger".

How to install:

1. Make sure that you have the latest repositories.
2. Use synaptic package manager and search for Empathy.
3. Install it.

Thats it, now you can do voice chat out of the box...

Finally the pity on Empathy, is that, it does not work in proxied networks. That is if you have a proxy server configured, though you may give the Gnome Proxy settings or the KDE Proxy settings, but Empathy does not work.

Try it, learn it and reveal it to your friends....
