I'm using Ubuntu Server 11.04 on a media server solution at home. This media server streams my music wireless at home through various proctols; DAAP, DLNA etc.
But... I would love to stream my music with the Google Music framework as well - since I have an Android 4.0 based phone wich have Google Music Player pre-installed. But this seems to be a mess on system that is only CLI based.
DAAP works OK when Im not at home, but the DAAP Music Player for Android or Banshee DAAP-plugin is not working well. Bad caching, not easy to create "offline playlists". Probably a limitation within the DAAP-protocol.Code:joachim@custom-media-server:/tmp$ sudo dpkg -i gmm.deb(Reading database ... 63222 files and directories currently installed.)

Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
Anyone knows if there is possible to run/sync the Google Music Manager from a server (cli-based)? Dont want to store my music on both my laptop and my server. My laptop only has a 120 GB SSD harddrive, and I need my space to other more important files.
EDIT: Actually. I just want the "sync to google music cloud" option, not to play music from the server itself. The server doesn't have any speakers connected to it.
