Howto: Install Google Voice and Video Chat on Fedora | RHEL | Linux | RPM-Based System

Hello Guys,

As I have already posted that Google Voice and Video chat is available for Linux but Only for Ubuntu, Today i was googling for installing Google Voice and Video chat on Fedora | RHEL and RPM Based Linux.  So I Found 1 very nice howto on google helps itself. A very nice howto which shows us that howto install using DEB file. I am posting that with some modification.

Google Released Official RPM to Install using Official RPM follow this link :- http://www.tejasbarot.com/2010/09/02/install-google-voice-video-chat-using-official-google-rpm-fedora-rhel-linux/

Perform following steps to install Google Voice & Video chat on Fedora | RHEL and RPM Based Linux

1. You need to be root for Doing this. So be as a root

2. Click Here to Download DEB File. Or Execute Below command on Terminal.

# wget -c http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-talkplugin_current_i386.deb

3. Move deb file to /tmp directory. Execute below command
# mv google-talkplugin_current.deb /tmp

4. Now Change your Directory to /tmp. Execute cd /tmp

5. Now Execute below command
# ar vx google-talkplugin_current.deb # This command will extract DEB file here.

6. Above command will install drivers, but as we don’t have exact RPM so we have to make link of some library files. Execute below commands
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s ../../lib/libcrypto.so.1.0.0a libcrypto.so.0.9.8
#
ln -s libssl.so.1.0.0a libssl.so.0.9.8

(non-Fedora distributions, and other versions of Fedora, may have different locations and version numbers for these libraries, but the same basic method should work.)

7. Now Again lets change our directory to /tmp where we have extracted DEB file. Execute command below
# cd /tmp
# tar xvzf data.tar.gz -C /

8. Now change your directory to /opt/google/talkplugin by executing command below
cd /opt/google/talkplugin

9. Type Below command
./GoogleTalkPlugin

If Everything is fine you will able to see two lines as below

./GoogleTalkPlugin: /usr/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by ./GoogleTalkPlugin)
./GoogleTalkPlugin: /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8: no version information available (required by ./GoogleTalkPlugin)

Above lines are not errors its just warnings so Don’t worry.

By following this howto on some systems plugin will work on firefox and on some plugin will work on Google Chrome. Don’t know the reason but its only like that. Also I don’t say or not any surety that this will works for all.

I want to thank this post for showing a very nice way to install Google Plugin without RPM.

Install Prism on Linux for easy to use web apps

If you are a web junkie, or depend upon various web sites and services daily you know how quickly your browser can fill up with tabs. Wouldn’t it be nice if you can just use small web apps for these needs? And since that seems to be the way the computing is evolving, it only makes sense that even your every day tools migrate to – as much as it pains me to say it – Cloud Computing. Although I have been against cloud computing since back in the days of thin clients, I am starting to see the value of these tools.

Thanks to the Mozilla Labs there is Prism. Prism is unlike other proprietary solutions like Silverlight. Prism is basically a way to split web apps from the browser and run them directly on the desktop. Although not always as small as, say, a Google Gadget, Prism tools are far more functional and do not strip features from the tools you use. For example, if you are using the Prism Google Document tool, you will have a fully functioned instance of whatever app you are using. In this tutorial you will learn how to install Prism and some of the apps as well as configure shortcuts for your menu.

Secure Firefox With Seven Key Add-Ons

Hi Friends,
I read one Nice Article form www.enterprisenetworkingplanet.com about Securing Mozilla Firefox.

To minimize the risk of succumbing to a web-borne attack then, it’s essential that laptop users use the Web as safely as possible, and the first thing to decide upon is a browser. The two most popular choices are Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, and there’s some debate about which one is more secure. It’s certainly true that Explorer is used by far more people than Firefox (due to it’s being part of the Windows operating system) so one could argue that, all things being equal, choosing the minority browser is the sensible choice because it offers a smaller (and thus less tempting) pool of potential victims to malware writers.
