Ubuntu – Google Talk account not working with Empathy


I am setting up Ubuntu. I just got ubuntu installed this morning. I went to set up Empathy with my Google Talk account, but no matter what, it says "Authorization Failed" even though I can very well use my account INCLUDING Google Talk in my web browser. Please help me – I hope this can be fixed.
