Switch off google-musicmanager and uninstall it. Go into ~/.config/ and delete the folder google-musicmanager/ from there. Reinstall and run it again and this time, choose an empty directory to upload music. Then the bug will not be there anymore. I found this workaround on ubuntuforums.org.

The instructions listed are good, but if what you are looking for is the desktop version of Hangouts, then I recommend installing the Google Chrome extension. Go to http://www.google.com/hangouts/ and click the "Available for your computer" link at the bottom. Despite being a Chrome extension, it makes Hangouts live in their own windows outside of the ...

It looks like someone has made a CUPS/Google Cloud Print tool here: http://www.niftiestsoftware.com/cups-cloud-print/ And it appears the author provides a PPA: Packages: https://launchpad.net/~simon-cadman/+archive/cups-cloud-print Source code: https://github.com/simoncadman/CUPS-Cloud-Print To install it and configure it: sudo add-apt-repository ...

(Credit to Jorge Castro for this answer) The Google packages install a cron job in /etc/cron.daily/ for custumizing the repository configuration and reenabling the source after a release upgrade. Each Google package will put its own script (or a link to a script) here. For example: google-musicmanager, google-chrome or google-talkplugin (the latter being ...

I used Chrome for a while but switched to Chromium, mostly because I read that "Chromium is the open source web browser project from which Google Chrome draws its source code". I figured: if I can use open source, I will. There aren't too many differences, although there are a few. This is what Wikipedia says Google adds to Chromium to make Chrome: ...

If browser based, I am switching to Feedly. It will import your Google Reader account automatically. Google will help you find a suitable replacement. EDIT; I have now settled on InoReader, far classier than Feedly, (actually has a working Chromium extension with unread count!) Also can subscribe to feeds via RSS Subscription Extension (by Google). Double ...

This bug you are facing has been fixed, but unfortunately only for Quantal. If you are on Precise, it is unlikely that the bug fix will be backported to the Web-apps Preview PPA. If you are desperate or feeling adventurous, you can download the deb file of signon-ui that is available in Quantal currently and install it manually. Can you install a .deb ...

This seems to be a bug. And from what I read, it looks like there is a workaround for Gnome 3.8. Are you using 2-factor authentication with Google? If you are, then it is better not to use GOA at the moment. The problem is that in 3.6 we use CalDAV for Google Calendars, which does not work with OAuth tokens, only with passwords. Neither does GTalk, which ...

As stated in the site you linked, Canary builds are not available for Linux. The only release channels available for Linux are: Stable, Beta and Dev.

There is a daap plugin for Google Music here that is currently unmaintained: https://github.com/dpogue/gmusic-daap. From the author: Unfortunately the DAAP library I started with doesn't support some of the options that iTunes looks for. It works with Rhythmbox and Banshee on Linux, and someone told me that it worked with an Android DAAP client. [1] ...

Google+ doesn't really have a write API yet so no one can write this feature (yet), however you can follow along progress in this bug report. How do I subscribe to a bug?

The idea is that those types of accounts should be configured in one place and then all other programs can get your identities. Your email clients, IM clients, VoIP, photo albums, etc. Obviously, any tool must exist before applications can start to use it, so it's no surprise that many applications doesn't use this yet. I thought at least Empathy would use ...

At the moment I would recommend Liferea due to the ease with which you can import your feeds from google reader and the aesthetics are closest to that of Lightread compared with other readers like RSSOwl for instance. Shame google reader is disappearing. I hope Lightread might get a feature to work without google reader.

Some audio and video feeds are not the normal "RSS" feeds, so you need to add quite a bit of configuration to Firefox to get it working. Enter about:config into the address bar of Firefox, That will bring up this screen: Click on I'll be careful, I promise! Next you need to enter in a lot of new strings, so first search for browser.content, that should ...

Google Desktop was discontinued September 2011, so the correct answer here is 'Google Desktop should no longer be used'. It is not receiving updates or security patches, so it isn't recommended to use it. You need to find an alternative like KDE's Plasma widgets or Conky.

Luckily for you, tualatrix did a small hack on gnome-terminal and added support to search on Google upon right clicking a message. You need to add a third-party PPA for it to work though. Run these commands in a terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/personal sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gnome-terminal Once updated, close all ...

As a compilation exercise, it is just about possible to force google-gadgets to compile - however I'm doubtful whether google-gadgets for the desktop is useful since Google themselves has discontinued support Thus this answer will give you enough pointers to achieve this under 11.10: How to compile: Install the prerequisites: sudo apt-get install ...

Some (trivial, basic) ideas reset your router (or at least inspect its settings) clear browsers' cookies & cache reboot (inter alia this will clear tmp, can't harm) try in different browsers try with a proxy (should almost definitely work)

I don't know if you can specifically identify what you're looking for, and I'm not entirely sure what you mean since Google Apps is a suite of stuff. Sites are hosted by other products that form a part of Google Apps. I'm assuming that you mean to refer to Google Sites. The function below actually looks for sites that contain GSE in their server name in the ...
