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.

  • Google released their Google Music Cloud Player to the public yesterday. This service lets you discover, listen and share music online from your android devices or PCs. This brief tutorial shows you how to install Google Music Manager in Ubuntu if you haven’t already done so.

  • So then what is the equivalent of the qt-x11 package on Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal (i.e. the .deb equivalent of the qt-x11 RPM package)? Because at least in 12.10, I’m experiencing the same problem…
