Posted below are the exact commands I used to download, install and run picasa.
ar x picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb data.tar.gz
mkdir -p ~/bin/google/picasa
mv data.tar.gz ~/bin/google/picasa
tar zxf data.tar.gz
rm -f data.tar.gz
ln -s google/picasa/opt/picasa/bin/picasa
So going through the lines:
* I used wget to download the latest 32bit deb of picasa.
* I then used ar to extract the install files from the deb.
* I created a directory and all it's parent dirs to place picasa (~/bin/google/picasa).
* I moved the archive to the above dir.
* I changed to that directory.
* I extracted the archive.
* I deleted the archive.
* I changed dir to ~/bin.
* I created a symbolic link so that I could run ~/bin/picasa to execute the program.
* I ran picasa.
Hope that clears things up for you.
it works great for me too! Thank's a lot! You do GREAT work! You have superior Linux Skills and it shows! What a powe house for the Pardus community!
You are a GREAT ASSET to this forum
P.S.- ***QUESTION***: Might you by chance have a work-around install for CD/DVD REMASTERSYS DISTRO IMAGING program?
I really do want to make a remaster/backup .ISO for all of the extra programs and changes done on here so far and I really do love this Linux distro and I don't want to lose what I got so far.
You really do great work and explain things really well.
I have read what have been done so far and all I am really seeing or have been told was that it may be put in the PISI repositories in future distro's but thats not a given just a hope that a programmer will put that in the works. Meanwhile one person out there has on and off working of the program but nothing stable for anyone to use for good results.
I think if you could make it happen we would see the distro's rating move even higher as this is a very popular request.
