Picasa for GNU/Linux


http://picasa.google.com/linux/ (official site)
http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20060526-6931.html (arstechnica article)

Picasa is now software that runs on GNU/Linux. It's gratis, but Google did contribute some code (mostly WINE-related): http://code.google.com/wine.html

It's available for all countries (I live in Costa Rica and was able to download it), but in English.

I install it and so far it's doing good enough. Although alpha (basically uses WINE instead of Qt, GTK or other more 'native toolkit').

I won't touch it unless they produce native Linux binary.

It's good news, but until Google make a beta native Linux binary I will be using digiKam from now on.

Odd. I have 2.4.31 and ran the "loki-style" installer as root and it installed fine. Do you get any error messages if you run it through the command line?
