How To: Install Google Music Manager on Ubuntu

Yeah, Google are a bunch of dicks and left Linux users out in the cold with Google Music. At least for now. No native client for Linux and not even a damn web-based upload option like Amazon Cloud has. Thankfully there's a way to get it working.

Ok, don't give a shit if you already have Wine installed. So did I, then Google Music Manager started freezing. So install the Wine repository and update/install Wine:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine



Then go grab the super easy install script here.

Then navigate to the directory where you unzipped the script package and run this to install it:

chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh


That's it, you're done. The script should automatically put a shortcut icon in your Internet programs folder.
