It depends on Gnome or KDE, I think.  Something that provides a system tray. 
I was unaware that Google came up with a Linux version of Desktop, but I'm
glad to see they created a Debian package.  I've just installed it and I'm
trying it out now...

Kind of disappointed they went with GTK (it's fugly on a Motif scale IMO),
and it doesn't seem to support searching across PCs like the Windows
version does yet.
