If that doesn't work, save the file in the /tmp directory, then open a terminal window and install with a command like
# dpkg -i /tmp/picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb
Start Picasa by looking in your Linux distribution's Graphics menu. If you can't find it there, give the command /usr/bin/picasa in a terminal window. Tips
- This package is only for 32-bit Debian / Ubuntu systems. If you are using 64-bit Debian / Ubuntu, please install the 64-bit .deb package.
- If you use NFS, when Picasa first starts, click File / Add Folder. Unselect your NFS shares from the watched list. Otherwise Picasa can get bogged down scanning all your network directories!
- To get Picasa to see pictures on your hard drive, click "File / Add Folder" (NOT "Import").
- When adding a folder to Picasa, the default action is to remove the folder from Picasa. You have to actively choose Scan once or Scan always.
- Picasa is not supported over remote X connections.
