    Default Picasa 3.6 Beta

    Right now I'm running Picasa 3.6 Beta, Windows version, using CrossOver Office...it works great.

    However, can't I install the linux version somehow in openSUSE 11.2? Darned if I could figure out how...getting repo errors trying to install the .rpm for x64

    thanks for assistance, and edification

    I'm fairly sure that in Linux any install of picasa is basically a wine based install. I'm equally sure there is no _64 version.

    true....I couldn't figure out why the .rpm Google provided for Picasa wouldn't install. I got a 'repository already exists error' ? But yes, I realized it used a wine component.

    I've switched to KDE, and went to install Picasa 3.6 Beta windows version (so to speak, the .exe file) and it installs just like gnome with CXOffice, but won't launch in KDE. Anyone have a clue? It ran beautifully in 11.2 gnome.

    thanks as I use it mainly for quick gmail emailing of photo's to family.

    It might be the odd permissions issue that kde has for crossover apps.
    I had it, the way to resolve it is to make a shortcut to the app on the desktop and click the icon, or make a shortcut in the panel.
    The panel option is more convenient, or try Lancelot.
    Personally I hate it but its worth a shot

    Am I correct, you are running in using crossover?
    Is there a Picasa launcher via the crossover menu?
