How to make shortcut depends on if you run picasa in wine or using picasa 3(beta) for linux. Generally there are two ways to create a shortcut. The traditional way would be to make a symlink from ~/Desktop to the launcher(icon on desktop). If you're using gnome-desktop, just rightclick on the desktop and select "new shortcut" and put the path to picasa there. If you want the shortcut in menu, you have to edit the menu-entries, usually rightclick on menubutton and 'edit'. The path to start will be the same.

For picasa in wine the shortcut should be something like; /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Picasa3

For the beta version native for linux, the shortcut should already the in [Applications --> Graphics --> Picasa]

I run Gnome in swedish so i dont know what it is called on an english system. If you rightclick on menu button and choose "reload plugins" or something it should show up in the menu under "graphics".

Check in control panel in mousesettings. You should have a tab for touchpad. Check if the box for mouseclick is enabled..
