Make Google Music Manager work in F15

To get the Google Music manager to work on Fedora 15

  1. Follow the instruction here.

  2. Run this as root:
    ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

  3. Start the 'Google Music Manager' from the 'Sound & Video' menu

  4. Logon in with your google account and select what folder to sync.

If you don't do step 2, then your will get a 'Can't connect to service"

It look like ít need your network card to named ethX, else you will get a "Could not identify your computer" error.  This is fixed by adding "biosdevname=0" to grub.conf. (Bad coding Google, please fix).


  1. Thanks a lot. This fix helps in F15 too.

  2. Thanks a lot for this tip! :-)

  3. I believe you can also make the device piece work by adding a SYMLINK= call in the udev rules for your net device. But really Google should be using udev to discover the devices. I filed an issue on this and tried to steer them in the right direction. :-)

  4. Not working for me :( (F15 - x86_64)

  5. works for me (F15 - x86_64)

  6. I'm in Brazil, some problem? Here GM don't work for me F15-x86, appear Could not identify your computer yet :(

  7. It's also a broken RPM that doesn't have the dependencies correct:
    $ google-musicmanager
    /usr/bin/google-musicmanager: error while loading shared libraries: libQtGui.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

  8. The easiest way to install the required shared libraries is probably:

    yum install redhat-lsb-graphics
