Plug-in compatible with Ubuntu, other Debian-based Linux distributions released two years after Windows and Mac versions.
Google's web-based voice and video chat service, a long-time staple for users of Windows and the Macintosh operating systems, now is available to Linux users.

The free plug-in supports Ubuntu and other Debian-based Linux distributions. RPM support will be coming soon, said Tristan Schmelcher, software engineer, in a company blog.

 


This capability was users' top video-chat request, he said. "Excellent news," commented Umar Faruk, a web and graphics designer from Tamilnadu, India, on the Google blog.

Other feedback included requests for the source code and compatibility with Jingle. "And where is the source code?" asked comment-writer Dodji Seketeli, a freeware software developer in Val d'oise, France.
