I am waiting eagerly for this myself too! I thought they would have had
it out long ago but nothing yet :-/

I'm wondering if the fact that google took the linux version off the
main Picasa page is an indication that google might not be planning to
support this in the future?

I know techs on this forum have stated they're working on it though - I
for one am greatful that Picasa is out for Linux and really hope Google
continues to progress it along.

I see it when I go to http://picasa.com. If you don't see it, can
you post the URL where you don't see it, and maybe a screenshot?
(And your country and IP address?)

We're definitely working on it. The holdup at the moment is it's
having trouble talking with Blogger; it's a bit of a challenge to debug
https sessions, but we'll get it ironed out before too long. I'm
sure there will be a few more holdups after that, but all in all things
aren't looking too bad.

I don't see any links to the Linux version of Picasa.
Screenshots: http://picasaweb.google.com/www.mnk.dk/PicasaScreenshots
The screenshots have NOT been uploaded with Picasa :-)

Picasa 2.5 works under wine and it exports to Web Albums just fine.
Checked it yesterday and it worked!

I dimly recall now:
The original picasa for linux was not tested for anything but English,
so perhaps the folks doing the picasa web site decided to not
publicize it on
non-US web sites.

It's not yet certain that the next version of picasa for linux will
officially support other languages, but if it does, maybe
the link to picasa you're missing will show up.

For completeness, which version of Wine did you test with?

We (well, really, the fine folks at Codeweavers) have been slowly
pushing fixes out to winehq.org over the last couple months.
The most recent fix is for a blogging bug, and
although it was posted to wine-patches, it
hasn't yet made it into cvs or a released version of wine.

I installed picasa 2.5 on Ubuntu/edgy with wine 0.9.30 a couple of
days ago and while it installs and runs,
it will not autoscan directories (and will not find any images).
It also seems to hang when going to 'Import' -view (I don't have any
cameras or scanners attached).

i've just upgraded from 0.9.29 to 0.9.30, so far:
- scanning dirs still works (as before)
- switching to import view works (though i haven't imported anything
from it)
- uploading to web album works !! (at last)

using windows picasa installation (2.6.0 build 35,9700)

This original post was NOT mine (and I don't remember where I got it),
so I'm not trying to take credit for it, but it sure as hell WORKS!

"
PICASA 2.5 web-album

Im using Ubuntu Edgy on i386 and this is what I did to get it working:

1. I installed Picasa as usual (v2.2 for linux)
2. I started it up and scanned some folder containing photos
3. Shut down picasa AND the media detector
4. Instlled wine (apt-get install wine)
5. Downloaded picasa 2.5 for windows (wget
http://dl.google.com/picasa/picasaweb-current-setup.exe)
6. Installed it using wine (wine picasaweb-current-setup.exe)
7. When asked if I want to run Picasa, I did so, then I shut down
picasa AND the media detector (if running)
7. Moved the old picasa installation (as root):
cd /opt/picasa/wine/drive_c/Program Files
mv Picasa2 Picasa22
8. While in the same dir i copied the new installed Picasa 2.5:
cp -R home/USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Picasa2/ .
8. Then it just worked... Good luck!
I had big troubles getting the start up logo disappearing, this is why
some steps are kind of awkward.

Thanks for the detailed installation guide! I followed it and can only
confirm! Picasa 2.6 works just fine using Ubuntu Edgy...

Everything's fine here with lastest Picasa 2.6 and WINE 0.9.30
The only problem is that whenever I click to sign in webalbum, picasa
blurs my screen and hangs up my machine or even reboots it.

This could be due to a bug in picasa or my hardware because picasa
behaves the same on windows (on the same machine).

Bugs in Picasa should not be able to lockup or reboot your computer;
the operating system is supposed to provide protection against
that.

You should probably have your system looked at.
Are you overclocking, by any chance?

No overclocking here.
I doubt whether it's the fault of nvidia binary driver, or due to
glibc 2.5

The crash occurs consistently whenever I click to sign in web album

Let's talk about the system rebooting first.
How reliably can you reproduce that under Linux?
And how reliably can you reproduce that under Windows?

Last night I rolled back to glibc 2.3.6 and xorg's nv driver.
The problem was still there.

I also found that it's not rebooting actually. It just hangs up my
system and gives no signal to my monitor so i thought it was a reboot.

This occurs on both Linux and Windows with the same machine.

Out of curiosity, when the system locks up like that,
what happens when you go to another computer on
the same network and try to ping it or ssh to it?
If it's not a severe problem, maybe you can log in
via the network and see what's up.

It really is sounding like a hardware problem, though.
You might try *underclocking*, I had to do that on a couple
systems in the past.
If you have the parts, I'd start swapping out components
(power supply, RAM, CPU, motherboard, graphics card)
until I found out what was causing the problem.

Anyway, this is getting kind of off-topic for this mailing
list; it really isn't a Picasa problem, picasa is just the
tool you use to trigger the hardware bug.

Oh my god, debug https is somewhat impossible in my mind.

Are these changes being committed to wine cvs or you keep this patches
around to bundle with next picasa4linux version?

I installed Picasa using wine-0.9.30, It's working fine, with small
glitches.

Thanks for the good work

It was rather a challenge, especially since the code in question
was buried in the mozilla activex component. Kudos to Michael
for figuring it out.

No changes needed. It seems Mozilla was just unhappy that
c:\windows\system32 (aka ~/.picasa/drive_c/windows/system32)
had no dlls in it.
Copy a few in and it will probably start working.
I haven't tried it myself, so ymmv.

A more complete fix (which is basically what the next release will do)
is to replace the drive_c/windows/ symlinks with real dirs, then let
the Picasa wrapper script populate the dirs with appropriate files.
The following steps should do it for you:

cd ~/.picasa/drive_c/windows
rm system32 system command inf.done/*
cp -prd /opt/picasa/wine/drive_c/windows/command .
cp -prd /opt/picasa/wine/drive_c/windows/system32 .
cp -prd /opt/picasa/wine/drive_c/windows/system .

That's interesting. I'm using Picasa on Feisty Fawn with no problems.
I use KNetworkManager, however, so it might be that it's expecting
something with that (it works for me, not for you, so I'm just
speculating).

It's not much, but it's what I call 127.0.0.1

Add my name to the list of people wanting a native Picasa in linux.
I've got a version running and it works well, but it's missing web
albums.

Google, I know you're doing your best, but please help! Get a native
linux version for those of us non-Microsoft users.

Thanks!

I've followed the instructions posted by dmitriyr333 AT gmail.com -
now when I startup the new Picasa, I get the splash screen and that's
it... it doesn't disappear until I manually kill all Picasa
processes. Any ideas?

I've tried everything suggested in the thread
http://groups.google.com/group/Google-Labs-Picasa-for-Linux/browse_thread/thread/f7e5f7b7ea8e1ae7/5813a208c93ee69a?lnk=gst&q=splash&rnum=1#5813a208c93ee69a
- still no luck.

I'm also using fglrx with an ATI X1600 mobility on the Feisy Fawn beta
(up to date as of 20070408). I've tried with both UseFastTLS 2 and
with "LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1", both to no avail. This is with the
Picasa2.2 wine, and I tried with both Picasa 2.6 binaries installed
with wine-0.9.33 and with Windows XP.

Another Ubuntu Feisty user with this same problem.

I'm running Feisty 7.04 beta (on a pressario M2000 semperon laptop).
First installed Picasa "for linux" 2.2 - ran currectly, detected my
pictures, etc.
Then installed Wine, then Picasa for windows 2.6.

Windows Picasa fails to execute (wine Picasa2.exe) with the same error
as posted by Moktin earlier:


fixme:wininet:InternetGetConnectedState always returning LAN
connection.
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0xXXXXXX "?" wait timed
out in thre
ad 0028, blocked by 001e, retrying (60 sec)

After ovewriting the "linux Picasa 2.2" with the "windows Picasa 2.6";
I get the same problem as mentioned by others.
Hangs at the Splash screen.

Anyone else had any luck?

I installed Picasa 2.6 with the steps described earlier in SuSE 10.22
and it worked fine.

I am not using KNetworkManager. I get the

"fixme:wininet:InternetGetConnectedState always returning LAN
connection."

message so that seems normal, I do not get the

"err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0xXXXXXX"

What Linux are you using?

Sorry, this was a result of "Friday afternoon syndrome". Ignore the
question about the OS.

James.
