Picasa 3.8?

Postby BillyM on Wed Oct 05, 2011 10:41 pm

I recently have tried making the switch to LMDE from Katya. I'm very inexperienced with Debian but love the idea of a rolling distribution. I am having a real tough time trying to get the updated Picasa 3.8 installed onto LMDE 201109. On Katya its fairly simple to extract the windows edition and copy over linux version since its a wine based program. On LMDE there's no stable wine on the initial repos and I'm very hesitant about adding new ones.

Has anyone sucessfully installed it ? And if you did could you help me out with a little instruction as to how you did. My kids love the facial recogntion

Thanks in Advance

Yes, I have got Picasa 3.9 working with Wine BUT it won't sign into Google. Just a blank signin screen. Any ideas?
