Was hard to find the info on how to setup kopete with google talk
To start, open up kopete.
Click on Settings
Click on ‘Configure Kopete ..’

This brings up a dialogbox which has all your accounts on it.
Click ‘New’ then the ‘Next’ button.

Select the Jabber protocol, then click ‘Next’

Use your current gmail address for username (aka Jabber ID)
Then click on the ‘Connection’ tab.
Now make sure all the checkboxes are selected. They are.
‘Use protocol encryption SSL’
‘Allow Plain text authentication’
‘Override default server information’

Now into the server box type in

Then click Next. Now click Finish.
It should then ask you your password if you didnt already enter it and save it.

If you have an error message regarding SSL or TLS not being installed you can install the package qca-tls.

Bingo, it works.
