As per my knowledge there is no Gtalk client available for linux but still you can use gTALK very easily.
First and simple option is to use Gtalk webbased client which can be opened in any web browser:
http://talkgadget.google.com/talkgadget/client

Second method is to use GAIM,
gTAlk is based on JABBER and gaim support jabber.
For that :
1.Click Accounts > Add (At the main login screen)
2.From the protocol dropdown select Jabber
3.Your screen name will be your gmail address except @gmail.com Example: If your address is xyz@gmail.com then your screen name will be xyz
4.Change the server from jabber.org to gmail.com
5.Password will be the same password that you use for Gmail
6.Click show more options
7.“Use TLS is available” should be checked
8.The connect server should be “talk.gmail.com
