How to install Google Music Manager on Fedora 16

I’ve been using Google’s Music locker / streaming service for awhile now. You get to upload 20,000 tracks and getting them on is a breeze with Google’s Music Manager. I’m running Fedora 16 now and here’s I got Google Music Manager running on it.

1. Get into your home downloads directory.
# cd ~/Downloads
2. Download the Google Music Manager rpm.
64bit:
# wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-musicmanager-beta_current_x86_64.rpm
32bit:
# wget http://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-musicmanager-beta_current_i386.rpm

3. Satisfy the dependencies. Install the qt-x11 package.
# sudo yum install qt-x11
4. Install the Google Music Manager package.
# sudo yum localinstall google-musicmanager-beta_current_x86_64.rpm

Possible error; make sure you have qt-x11 installed.

1. Let’s work from your Downloads folder.
cd ~/Downloads
2. Download the Ubuntu Fonts package from Ubuntu.
wget http://font.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu-font-family-0.80.zip

mv ubuntu-font-family-0.80 ubuntu-font-family
5. Copy the extracted directory to the system shared fonts directory.
su -c 'cp -rv ubuntu-font-family /usr/share/fonts/'
6. Set the permissions for the directory you just moved.
su -c 'chmod 755 /usr/share/fonts/ubuntu-font-family'
7. Scan and build the fonts cache files for the new Ubuntu files.
cd /usr/share/fonts
su -c ‘fc-cache ubuntu-font-family’

That’s it, you should now be able to use the Ubuntu fonts in your applications and documents.

Here’s a video of the process.

How to install Flash 11 64-bit on Fedora 16

Change into you home directory.
cd ~
Download the official Adobe repository package rpm. This rpm will create the repository file for us.
sudo wget http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/x86_64/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
Install the rpm file.
sudo rpm -ivh adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
Import the repository GPG key.
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
Update you local yum repositories.
sudo yum update
Install the 64 bit Flash Plugin
sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

Check if the install was successful. In Firefox, go to “about:plugins” in the address bar and look for “Shockwave Flash”. If installed you will see;

File: libflashplayer.so
Version: Shockwave Flash 11.0 r1

Quick Step: If you just want to install the Flash Plugin and not bother about the repo you can download the installer directly and install Flash.

cd ~
sudo wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.0.1.152/flash-plugin-11.0.1.152-release.x86_64.rpm
