Hangout on Debian without root permissions

The follow commands will install Google Hangout plugin for Mozilla Firefox in local mode, without the need of root permissions.

Note, You will need to run the GoogleTalkPlugin command before start a call, and the screen sharing will not work in any case.

sudo su -
mkdir -p /home/shared/opt/software/googletalk
cd /home/shared/opt/software/googletalk
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb
dpkg -x google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb .
rm -f google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb
exit
ln -s /home/shared/opt/software/googletalk/opt/google/talkplugin/libnpo1d.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /home/shared/opt/software/googletalk/opt/google/talkplugin/libnpgoogletalk.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
