Gnome 3.6 Online Accounts and Google 2-Step Authentication

Here is a solution to Online Accounts integration for Google Talk in Gnome 3.6 if you are using 2-step authentication.

Open Seahorse, find your passwords for “GOA”
Create an application-specific password for your Google account in the web browser.
In Seahorse, open the entry and display the password. It will be very long, find the following section: 'password': <'your_password'>.
Replace your_password with your application-specific password you’ve generated.
