I would like Picasa 2.7 for Linux as posted and put out by Google. They have several options for repositories and I don't think any of the flavors of Linux are migratable with Pardus...I could be wrong though.

Anyways, Here is the link: http://picasa.google.com/linux/download.html

Thanks, BTW, I was able to succesfully add Brasero to the PiSi package manager! Thanks a bunch. I hope you are able to help me with this one as well. This program is the best Photo Imaging program out there as compared with to any that Windows had to offer. As I build onto this Linux distro to my own needs, I am enjoying what Pardus Linux team is doing to be number one on the top list of what the world  community is looking for! Keep up the Great work Shocked)

I see that no one commented on this.

Does anyone know how I can get this program installed on Pardus 2008.1 otherwise?

See source of possibilities to work from. I would really like to install now.

I'm happy to download picasa and have a play at getting it installed, won't be for a few hours until my off-peak kicks in (evil isp speed limiting me just for my constant leeching).

Did you try http://picasa.google.com/linux/faq.html#44 btw?

EDIT: http://en.pardus-wiki.org/HOWTO:Picasa - seems to indicate that the advice in the google faq works on pardus.

No I did not, but please post how your install went and please comment any suggestions or shortcuts or a better way to install. I am not a geru just an average user of Linux.

Thanks,

Posted below are the exact commands I used to download, install and run picasa.

wget http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/pool/non-free/p/picasa/picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb
ar x picasa_2.7.3736-15_i386.deb data.tar.gz
mkdir -p ~/bin/google/picasa
mv data.tar.gz ~/bin/google/picasa
cd ~/bin/google/picasa
tar zxf data.tar.gz
rm -f data.tar.gz
cd ~/bin
ln -s google/picasa/opt/picasa/bin/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.

Hi lashni,
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 Smiley

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.
