I am facing the exact same issue and I am baffled with what I am doing wrong. The SSO works from Google to Zendesk (e.g. if I click on the google apps from my gmail) but if I try to log in directly to our zendesk subdomain, I get the redirect to google but it fails with "app not configured fro the user".
Same problem here.
Testing through Google Admin or clicking on Zendesk on apps menu (i.e. Gmail) works fine.
