a work in progress
linux: debian etch (4.0)\
windows: active directory (server 2003?)
Ensure the computer name/hostname/netbios name is the same, else there
will be all kinds of wierd problems:
Install wine, sane, cabextraxct.
Download picasa 3.6
From terminal run command below for configuring wine environment and in
resulting dialog go to in the “audio” tab, let wine make its audio
configuration, test the audio with the "test" button. When that's done,
install picasa. I did not need to install or run winetricks.
env WINEPREFIX="/home/$USERNAME/.winepicasa" winecfg
env WINEPREFIX="/home/$USERNAME/.winepicasa" wine picasa36-setup.exe
Add SmugMug upload button
and from the "click here" link
strip prefix and save
PS: please let this fellow know too:
I would but I'm not allowed to register on dgrin for some reason...
To see which version of debian your hosting account is run under
my first serious contribution to the Ubuntu community: How to: install
Picasa 2.7 under 64 bit Ubuntu Fiesty
It’s kind of sad that it is about a non-free app, but after flailing
around with F-Spot and Digikam and gthumb, I’ve succumbed to the siren
song of a well polished and easy to use UI (with a big push from my wife
who needs to share the computer with me).
1. Install official google linux picasa version, forcing architecture
from 32bit to 64bit
sudo su #(or simply log in as root)\
aptitude -y install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk linux32\
dpkg –force-architecture -i picasa_2.2.2820-5_i386.deb
Start Picasa, let it run …continue.
How to convert dirnames from upper to lower case on linux:
for each in `ls -d *`; do newname=`echo $each | tr [A-Z] [a-z]`; mv $each $newname; done
For ubuntu 8.04 and perhaps other versions on Dell Inspiron 1501 edit
/etc/default/acpi-support and set this line as follows (the quotes
were empty “” when first opened). A reboot was necessary.

Ubuntu distribution upgrade from 7.04 to 7.10 on a dell inspiron1501
laptop completed, but X windows failed to start. The solution was to:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linux-restricted-modules-generic restricted-manager
sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
sudo depmod -a
I use both windows and linux on a regular basis, and would like to
optimise the number of things I need to remember distinctly. One of
these categories is keyboard shortcuts. Although in Ubuntu Hardy System
> Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts brings up an application to easily
view or assign keyboard shortcuts, out of the box the WinKey doesn’t
work in combination. It turns out one needs to change the keyboard
layout option first so that winkey is treated as a single key. Courtesy
Re: Can’t press Super L + other keys\
Here is the solution :\
1) Goto System > Preferences > Keyboard\
2) Goto “Layout …continue.
