I've followed several Howto's with no success. Do I need a special type of account perhaps? I did turn on access for less secure apps. Is there a waiting period for Hangouts after creating a new Google account?

I don't use Google Apps but there seems to be some suggestion that I need something pertaining to G Apps.

Note that I've also tried "gmail" instead of "google". I'm using 2.10.12


You need to enter talk.google.com to "Connect Server" in "Advanced" tab. Below is the example for gokcer@gmail.com

Account information:

Server information:

Server information

  • I am quite sure you can leave the "server" address blank (talk.google.com), usually I just leaved it blank because it is automatically associated to the domain gmail.com. Another answer here is addressing this. – Kubuntuer82 Jun 5 '19 at 10:57

Looks like you've got the "connect server" (in the Advanced tab) filled in wrong. Try unsetting that and just leaving it blank, with your "domain" field filled in with "gmail.com", eg: BasicTabAdvanced tab

(On a side note, it also looks like you're using the old and outdated skype plugin. Try the newer skypeweb plugin instead)
