How to install Google Music Manager on Debian Wheezy

If you are running Debian Wheezy and have trouble installing the Google Music Manager from the official Google Music downloads page, here’s how you can fix it.

The current Google Music Manager depends on libc6 2.15 and Debian Wheezy has libc6 2.13. Changing the libc version is a mayor risk to the stability of your system. So what to do?

Install an older version that can be used with libc6 2.13. You can download the older version for amd64 or i386. Additionally, you’ll need to install libqt4-webkit dependency.

sudo apt-get install libqt4-webkit

Then install the downloaded file

sudo dpkg -i google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb

Open Google Music Manager and setup your Google account and sync folder and you’re done.

Update: Thanks to Martin for the i386 version.
