Thread: Picasa viewer in suse??

    Default Re: Picasa viewer in suse??

    I was trying to make "picasa viewer" to work. Not the picasa. Picasa 3 works fine for me too. ;p

    Sorry. Now that I have tried selecting Tools/cofigure photo viewer only
    to have the selected setting fail to have any effect or even for the
    selected option to be remembered by Picasa the next time it loads, I
    understand the nature of the problem. I don't see that this has been
    discussed at all on the Linux Picasa forum. However, I wonder if that
    means that it works in other Linux distros or whether hardly anybody has
    tried the feature.

    It isn't enabled in the Linux version of Picasa:

    Hey, I've crashed my head before I finally found a mistake in code.

    Paste the following into your /usr/bin/PicasaPhotoViewer file and enjoy your Picasa Viewer.

    Here is the content of PicasaPhotoViewer file:

    #!/bin/bash
    # PicasaPhotoViewer Port for Linux
    # By Irakli Gozalishvili <rfobic@gmail.com>

    # Constants
    Picasa3Path="/opt/google/picasa/3.0/"
    RootForWinePath="Z:"
    WineWrapper="/opt/google/picasa/3.0/bin/wrapper"
    PicasaPhotoViewer=$Picasa3Path"wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Picasa3/PicasaPhotoViewer.exe"
    DefaultImagePath=$Picasa3Path"wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Picasa3/runtime/splashPPV.png"

    # Getting argument for image uri
    if [ -f $1]; then
    imageUnixPath=$DefaultImagePath
    else
    imageUnixPath=$1
    fi

    # Converting Unix File Path to Wine Path
    imageWinePath=$RootForWinePath${imageUnixPath//\//\\}

    # Running PicasaPhotoViewer with argument
    $WineWrapper "$PicasaPhotoViewer" "$imageWinePath"

    As if it seems that no answers can be found about PicasaPhotoViewer on Linux, here you can find my own HOW-TO.

    HOW-TO install Picasa3 and PicasaPhotoViewer on Linux (my distro is OpenSUSE 11.0):

    Download and install Picasa3:
    Picasa 3 for Linux: Free download from Google

    Download and install PicasaPhotoViewer:
    http://armag.info/rpm/PicasaPhotoVie...2-2.noarch.rpm

    Edit /usr/bin/PicasaPhotoViewer file. It should be exactly the same, please, copy and paste (in the original file there is a case mistake (I found it after an hour of cursing)):

    /usr/bin/PicasaPhotoViewer content:

    Code:

    thank you so much. Since I have upgraded to opensuse 11, I have not tried it yet. But I will try it tonight.

    Thanks for finding that small "w" for "WineWrapper". That small thingy gave me big headaches some months ago. Its running good now.
    Thank you again.
