My school is using Google apps for our email. Until recently, we have been using Blackboard IM for our IM services. However, we will soon not be using this service any longer. We will need to use the Gmail chat, but I still like the idea of a desktop IM instead of a web-based IM (the google apps chat in gmail looks terrible), so I downloaded Pidgin. For some reason though, I can’t connect. I suspect that it is my settings that prevent me from doing so. Please tell me the settings which I need to input for Pidgin 2.10.6.
If you can direct me to other Instant-messengers that work, then please include them!
