Fix 64 bit Google Talk Plugin Linux

Credit for this fix belongs here but I have copied it here for ease of access

Download the 64-bit .deb from:

Create a tmp dir:

mkdir tmp

Extract the contents of the .deb to the tmp dir:

dpkg-deb -x google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb tmp

Extract the control files:

dpkg-deb --control google-talkplugin_current_amd64.deb tmp/DEBIAN

Fix the dependency:

sed -i "s/lib32v4l-0/libv4l-0/" tmp/DEBIAN/control

Repackage the .deb:

dpkg -b tmp google-talkplugin_current_amd64-fixed.deb

Install the fixed version:

sudo dpkg -i google-talkplugin_current_amd64-fixed.deb
