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.

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libqt4-network : Depends: libqt4-dbus (= 4:4.7.2-0ubuntu6.3) but it is not going to be installed
libqtgui4 : Depends: libaudio2 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libmng1 (>= 1.0.10) but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: appmenu-qt but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. 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.
