Gaim and gtalk (jabber) in Arch [SOLVED]
I have installed Gaim and gaim-plugins-pack using pacman in my Arch installation.
I use gaim to chat in both Yahoo and Gtalk. I could set up Yahoo account without any problem, but I can't find the Jabber protocol in the drop-down list when I tried to configure my gmail account!!
In my other distro (Ubuntu), I can set up gtalk using Jabber protocol without any problems , though!!
Any help???

I'm not sure what packages it is you need but if you 'pacman -Ss jabber' it brings up a few packages that may be relevant to your problem.

You may have to pipe it through 'less' as there seems quite a few of them.

hth :)

Well, managed to solve the problem.....just had to install glibc (plus the kernel headers) using pacman.
Now, Jabber is there in the dropdown list of protocols in GAIM.
