Ubuntu – How to install Google Hangout


I just started running Ubuntu 14.04 (32-bit). I logged into Google+ and went to there page to download the Hangout plug-in. It would download, but any time I tried to open the installer with the Ubuntu Software Center, I would just take me to the home page and won't install anything. Any suggestions?

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/talkplugin/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install google-talkplugin
