Google Desktop for Linux

Google expands gadgets and releases Google Desktop for Linux

A pair of new launches by Google is making some developers and Linux desktop users cheer. Google Desktop for Linux (beta) was developed by Google's Beijing engineering team. It runs on Debian 4.0, Fedora Core 6, Ubuntu 6.10, SUSE 10.1, and Red Flag 5. Google also launched a new pilot initiative called Google Gadget Ventures aimed at bootstrapping an economic ecosystem around gadgets.
“Google Desktop hit the operating system trifecta today with the release of a version of Google Desktop for Linux. Now available on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, the Google Desktop application allows users of every major operating system to search their desktop and the web as quickly, easily and comprehensively as they search the web with Google,” Google said, on Wednesday.
Google Desktop for Linux (beta) includes indexing allowing users the ability to search their computers content, including text, PDF, PS, source code, HTML files, email from Thunderbird, documents, Man and Info pages, folders, images, and music. Google Desktop for Linux also finds previous versions of files or recovers those that have been accidentally deleted.
