In this guide, we will see how to install Google Music Frame on Fedora 15. Google hasn't yet made available the possibility to install Google Music Frame using the "yum" format, but it is possible to compile and install its source files by following these instructions:

1. If you haven't yet installed the Flash player on Fedora 15, then use these commands:

su -
sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
sudo yum install flash-plugin

2. Install now these required dependencies for the compilation of Google Music Frame:

sudo yum install gcc glib2-devel libgee-devel libsoup-devel gtk2-devel webkitgtk-devel python vala libnotify-devel libX11-devel unique-devel

3. It's time now to download Google Music Frame files. We need the "bzr" tool to download these files. If you haven't installed it on Fedora, then do with this command:

yum install bzr

Then download Google Music Frame with this command:

bzr branch lp:google-music-frame

4. Compile and install now Google Music Frame with these commands:

cd google-music-frame
./waf configure
./waf build
./waf install

5. You can then open Google Music Frame in Applications > Internet > Google Music Frame. Here is a screenshot of the program:

You should know that the program is still Beta and only available for the United States currently. Enjoy!
