    I followed the instructions, per above, but did not install IE6. I am wondering if this would somehow break the install, not allowing the Picture viewer portion of Picasa to funcution, the editing interface works without issue. I am unable to configure the picture viewer to be the default image viewer, and it is not listed in the “open with” options. Ubuntu 12.04, Wine 1.4, Picasa 3.9.

    First user that you made during installation, has root privileges using the “sudo” command, and your own password.Try this and i hope it solve your problems.
    Sudo is great but dont log in and work usualy like sudo user.dont give others sudo privilegies.Here is tutorial how to change su pasword.Remember it.
    step1. Open the bash terminal.

    ubuntuuser@ubuntuuser-desktop:~$

    step2. Type the command ” sudo passwd root ” without “”.First it will ask for the user password.Enter your current-user session password and and hit enter.

    ubuntuuser@ubuntuuser-desktop:~$ sudo passwd root

    [sudo] password for ubuntuuser:
    step3. Then it will ask for new password.Enter a new password twice.This is the password you will use this in future for logging as root.

    Enter new UNIX password:

    Retype new UNIX password:

    passwd: password updated successfully

    ubuntuuser@ubuntuuser-desktop:~$

    step4. To check whether it is working or not just logout fr0m the current session.At login prompt,choose other as a user account.Next, in the place of username write root and the password you just defined in the above step.

    step5. that’s all..I hope your work is done.

    Interesting problem here.

    Got through the issues with 64 bit, got through installing ie6.

    Now Picasa, Configuration, and Uninstall appear in Mint menu, but clicking on any of them results in a popup box with : File Not Found.

    Running Mint 14 Mate 1.4

    The link in the menu for Picasa is listed as:
    env WINEPREFIX=”/home/steve/.wine” wine
    C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix
    /home/steve/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Start\

      Use the Tab key to move from one element (e.g., button, text box) to the next. Use Shift+Tab to move in reverse.
      Use Spacebar to “click” the selected button.
      Use Enter to click the default button (or currently selected button, if there is no default).
      You can move up and down in a textbox with the arrow keys, and with Page Up and Page Down. If that doesn’t work, press Tab until the text box you want to navigate in is selected.
      If you’ve accidentally said you don’t agree to the EULA, and you want a chance to review it again and agree, you can reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer, purging its global configuration files:
