I have Google Voice working with Google Talk and pidgin on my local computer. My problem is that if I dial a conference number, I need a dial pad to enter the numbers, how can I get pidgin to display that? Alternatively, if I can somehow enable it to capture the key presses, that'd be great too. If I enter any numbers or characters, it doesn't appear to accept it.

How did you get Google Voice working in the desktop Google Talk client? I'd be interested to see how to do that. – nhinkle Sep 9 '10 at 21:18
I am using pidgin, it didn't require any configuration other than enabling the voice/video plugin. – Walter White Sep 9 '10 at 21:32
