Hi trouble shooters,
I think I am facing a serious problem, when I try to create an account in Google Talk I am facing an error message. This error blocks me from proceeding further in creating an account. At work they need this account so please help me to create an account. I tried million times by restarting the system and recreating but no luck. Please help.
There was an error while parsing the account details.
The error message was: org.freedesktop.DBus.GLib.UnmappedError.McdAccountManagerError.Code0:
Failed to set parameter: Not all parameters were recognized
You can either go back and try to enter your
accounts’ details again or quit this assistant and
add accounts later from the Edit menu.
Error while parsing the account details
I think the problem here is not with the process of creating an account with Google Talk because in the first place, it is your Google account that will be used when logging in to Google Talk if you already have one. Or if you don’t have one yet, you can always create a free account by visiting Google using your web browser.
I’m not really a fan of Google Talk that’s why when somebody asked me to install it because we need to talk about something, I expect to install it similar to Yahoo! Messenger. I didn’t experience any problem installing and logging into it because I already have my Google account and I use it to login to Google Talk. It’s very simple actually. You just need to make sure that the installation went through successfully and simply login after that.
No other process is involve. In your case, since you are using Linux, download again the Linux version of Google Talk from Download Ubuntu Google Talk. If the one you have is already installed, uninstall it, restart your computer, and download the version provided in the link. Install Google Talk after that.
To avoid any problem, in case you still don’t have a Google account yet, open your web browser and visit Google Website. On the upper-right corner of the page, click Gmail. See image.
On the next page, follow the instructions on how to create your Google account. You need to fill out the form with correct information. Once your account is created, open Google Talk and login using your new Google account.
