  • Status changed from new to pending

You have set up a Yahoo email account as a Google Account and want to use that account to sign in to Google Talk via pidgin? Can you sign in to the official Google Talk client with your Yahoo account?

You can use Pidgin with GoogleTalk accounts that use a Google e-mail address, but accounts that use a non-Google e-mail address have a JID that is actually <someterriblenumber> Using the latter kind of account with Pidgin is not possible because the Google servers don't seem to allow this, even when the account's real JID is used.
