No Web Albums access in Picasa


Hello all. I am running Fedora 14 and I installed Picasa from the rpm provided on Google's website. Of course, there was an error when I launched it. This was due to the wine-preloader binary that is provided by Picasa being too old. I replaced it with my brand new one and Picasa started running. The problem is that I cannot log into Web Albums because it tells me that Picasa cannot reach the server or whatever. Error message:

Code:
Login failed

Please check that you are connected to the internet, and that your internet connection is working properly.
If this problem persists and you contact support, please provide the following error code:

HttpOpenRequest failed (121570 - 
https:///www.google.con/accounts/ClientAuth [13]
Is there a wine internet module that exists, and if so, can I replace it with the one provided by Picasa, wherever it is ?

Thanks

Alex

Instantaneous solve. I looked on this page after Googling my exact problem:

and I found my answer.

Since the Wine that is included is old, you have to copy wine-preloader from /usr/bin and paste it into the bin folder in the wine directory in wherever Picasa is installed. For example, this is the default for most people:

Quote:
sudo (or su -c) cp /usr/bin/wine-preloader /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/bin
This will eliminate the old Picasa wine-preloader and replace it with the new one, which works.

To make Picasa be able to connect to Web Albums, you need to copy wininet.dll.so from your /usr/lib/wine directory into the lib folder of your wine directory in wherever you installed Picasa. For example:

Quote:
sudo (or su -c) cp /usr/lib/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib
Now Picasa will work optimally!

I just looked at Picasa again after months of not using it. Turns out that to make login possible, the copying of wininet.dll.so needs to be tweaked a little.

Code:
sudo (su -c) cp /usr/lib/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine
Instead of:

Code:
sudo cp /usr/lib/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/
Sorry!

wrong path to wininet.dll.so

Hi.
In my case second row of code should be this:
Code:
sudo cp /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine/wininet.dll.so /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine
I searched wininet.dll.so in /usr/lib.
Using Linux Mint 13 btw.
