Google's Linux software repositories make it easier to download and stay up-to-date with current releases of Google Linux applications. Please choose one of the guides below to help configure your system to use these repositories.

First you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list file

#vi /etc/apt/sources.list

add the following line

# Google software repository

deb http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/ stable non-free

Save and exit the file

you must download the key and then use apt to install it and refresh your package indexes.

Run these commands as root:

#wget -q -O -- https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add --

Now you need to update the source list using the following command

#apt-get update

Install google applications now you can see the following command to install google picasa

#apt-get install picasa

    gpg: no writable keyring found: eof
    gpg: error reading `-‘: general error
    gpg: import from `-‘ failed: general error
    :~$ wget -q -O – https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | apt-key add
    gpg: can’t open `’: No such file or directory
