Google account login through command line?

Asked by William Ting on 2011-05-12

I just installed the latest build onto Ubuntu 10.10 through the instructions here:
http://ubundance.blogspot.com/2010/08/installing-rescuetime-on-ubuntu-1004.html

The problem is when running the command `rescue_time_uploader` it asks for my login information. I use Google login for Rescue Time, but my Google credentials aren't working. What should I be using? Should I create with a new account with an e-mail instead?

I had the same problem, but the solution is to log into the Recuetime.com website, and the in the settings area set your password there. The idea is that when you login via the website, it redirects you to Google's auth page, and then back to RT. When you try to login via the linux console uploader, the RT server has no clue what your Google password is, so it fails. Setting the password on the RT website fixes it.
