Google releases Linux repositories
Note: As correctly, and occasionally politely, pointed out, the Google Linxu repository is not new. This was an error on out part. But for those that weren’t aware, we keep this article for reference.
Search giant Google has finally launched a repository of its software for Linux users. The repository will house the latest Linux versions of its software and make it easier for Linux users to keep up to date.
The site has detailed instructions for using a GUI setup on Ubuntu, Debian GNU/Linux, openSUSE and Mandriva. Command line instructions are also provided for APT, YUM, urpmi, YaST2 and RPM.
Right now the repository only has Picasa and Google Desktop but more is promised in the near future.
Also this week, Google released Picasa 3.0 beta for Linux. Presumably the final release will also find its way to the Linux repository when it is released.
