I succesfully installed Picasa 3.9 under Crunchbang following this webupd8-tutorial. I also installed libwine-cms:i386. Everything works well and Picasa launches after installation.

The problem: once I close it, I cannot get it to relaunch. I tried the following and neiither works:

  • picasa
  • Picasa
  • Picasa39
  • wine picasa
  • wine Picasa39

On the wine-commands I get wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\picasa.exe", so I tried copying the .exe from "Program Files" to 'system32' but that also does not work.

Ok, this Rosetta-Stone question gave me the clue:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Google/Picasa3

wine Picasa3.exe
