I'm trying to use googlecl on my Ubuntu server to send pictures from my server to picasa. I can't seem to authenticate via google using w3m, so I'm wondering if there is some other way to authenticate googlecl via OAuth.

Oh, that was easy... after w3m failed, I just hit q,y, which takes me to a googlecl prompt to visit the url with my browser. I open that link in my local firefox (I'm connecting to the server with ssh) and authenticate it locally. Then hit enter in the ssh terminal, which works. –  Yuttadhammo Jun 25 '11 at 14:28
