How to Install Picasa 3.9 on Ubuntu
  

In this How to I will provide you steps to install Picasa 3.9 in Ubuntu operating system because installation of Picasa is not easy. The program Picasa manages all photos and videos on your system automatically according to the date when you have saved those images. Once you connect your digital camera with your computer, Picasa takes the new photos with one click. You can email. Print or export your favorite photographs. it allows you to edit your images, create slide shows, to send files in batch mode and share content online with very simple procedure. Moreover, in the latest version of the program, you have access to the "Face Movie" which allows you to mount compelling presentations in minutes. Finally, Picasa Photo Organizer includes a brand new tag recognition system, a sign of change and configuration (XMP, EXIF) that you can recognize exactly the changes made to each of the photos in your collections. In the new version 3.9 you can transfer content directly to Google + share and have a wider selection of editing tools. An overview of further changes to the latest version of Picasa you get on the official manufacturer's website. Picasa is a round-happy package for multi-clippers. The Google program is extremely easy to use, runs stable and offers the latest version even more functions around the image.




Steps to install Picasa 3.9 in ubuntu.
  • First you have to Wine and Winetricks in your system. For installing that you need open terminal and enter following commands

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wine winetricks
  • if you have earlier version of ubuntu such as 10.4 then you have to install Winetricks with the help of below commands because repositories of earlier ubuntu does not have Winetricks.

    Code:
    cd
    wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
    sudo mv winetricks /usr/local/bin/
    sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/winetricks

    Code:
    cd && wget http://dl.google.com/picasa/picasa39-setup.exe

Re: How to Install Picasa 3.9 on Ubuntu

There are many users who are facing problem with internet explorer, to solve this problem you need to manually download internet explorer from internet and then you have to exe file of internet explorer in to the /.cache/winetricks/ie/ folder. In the home folder Cache folder is hidden and that is why you have to use Ctrl and H key to view it. Now after doing that you have to open terminal and then enter following command

Code:
winetricks ie6
