Picasa viewer in suse??

I have come across this blog,

Gozilla planet: Picasa Photo Viewer (Linux port) - Updated

it will be nice to have picasa viewer in linux too. I like the way it looks and is fast too.

Does any one has suse rpm for it?

download from Picasa 3 for Linux: Free download from Google

Cheers

See my thread for getting the Picasa Photo Viewer functional on the desktop:

openSUSE Forums - View Single Post - FEBRUARY Screenshot Thread

Thank you very much. That is exactly what I am looking for. I am so grateful.

One more question… what were the tweaks you made to the /usr/bin/PicasaImageViewer ?

I get these errors:

/usr/bin/PicasaPhotoViewer: line 13: : missing `]’
/usr/bin/PicasaPhotoViewer: line 23: /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Picasa3/PicasaPhotoViewer.exe: cannot execute binary file

why is it not executing the picasaphotoviewer.exe ??
anyone please help.

BTW the missing ‘]’ in line 13 comes only when i try to run PicasaPhotoViewer with the arguments for the path of photo.if I try to run only PicasaPhotoViewer, it will show only the 2nd error message.

NO one?:frowning:

I am dying to have it in my susebox.

Please petegnj
I need some help from you .

I am running Picasa 3.0.0 on openSUSE 11.1 (32-bit). Works fine.
Download the RPM from:

http://picasa.google.com/linux/download.html#picasa30

Note 3.0 is still regarded as experimental, so 2.7 is still available as
well. I prefer 3.0.

I don’t remember, but I presume used rpm -i filename to install Picasa.

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:

please see the first link i have provided to see what I am asking for.

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:

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/PicasaPhotoViewer-1.0.2-2.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)):

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.
