What service of google's are you connecting to? Do you mean the google docs thing?

I'm using the version Dev of ubuntu 12.10 Beta 1

I'm selecting the account Google (includes Gmail, Google Docsn Google Talk, youtube and Picasa.

When selecting that option, the system shows "Please authorize Ubuntu to access your Google account", the Page try to load the authentification page from the net and then it shows :"An error occurent while loading the authentification page"

Then I suggest you report a bug

I too am facing the same problem.

I use an authenticated proxy server.

I first tried Ubuntu 12.10 from the Live USB and then eith Virtual Box. In both cases I was able to connect to my google Account from Gwibber.

Now I have done a clean install of 12.10, but now I am not able to connect at all.

Can you help with this problem?
