The problem is, Google Talk is Windows only, for now, and though the website says Adium will connect to it, it does not say how — so I’m going to say how:

  • Open Adium’s Prefrences
  • Add an account

  • Click the plus on the add accounts page and choose a Jabber account
  • Put in your GMail E-Mail address and your password in the Account tab
  • Server settings

  • Under the Options tab add the server of
  • check off secure TLS –

  • You might want to check auto-connect
  • Hit OK and you’re done!
