Hello,

In a journey to install Picasa on Linux Mint 19.3 I came across playonlinux.

The Picasa installer didn't seem to be working so I took at look at the it and found out why.

3 Main reasons:

1. The download link was broken, so I replaced it with an archive.org version.

2. The freefonts issue was coming up, so I upgraded to wine 2.22. (Note: I tried wine 3 but it didn't seem to do anyting but cause an additonal prompt to install wine-mono)

3. The IE8 install was failing, so I removed it.

 

I assume the script was installing IE for the Google web albums integration. Those apis are deprecated so that’s no longer useful.
If we have IE8 install we get:
We have to hit enter to overwrite files
then: "this installation does not support your operating system's current service pack version"
then: "Please wait while POL is simulating a reboot" (which never ends).
This is why I removed IE 8.

 

After fixing the above I noticed that Picasa “crashes” each time it closes.
A workaround is to add this to the startup script export POL_IgnoreWineErrors=True

However, if anyone can help find the cause of this and fix it would be greatly appreciated.

I tried to fix the 'crash when exit' issue without success (tried Wine 3.0.3, 3.20, 4.03, installing wininet, disable network in Picasa Options menu).

Hello
After reinstalling the latest version of Picasa on my Windows machine.
Log off from Google+
Relog on to Google+
Exporting the GoogleOAuth* values again.
And reinstalling Picasa with my script.
Stopping Picasa in POL and adding the changed values to the user.reg, the authentication works again.
In my case I also had to change the album settings again to sync with the mass upload feature.

Maybe updating Picasa with the POL script and on the windows machine,
log off and relog on on the Windows machine,
exporting the new values and 
modifying the user.reg will work as well.

Best regards
Strudl

Hello
 
I also used Picasa on Ubuntu.
 
It worked fine with wine 1.7.33 x86
Adding HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\Picasa\Picasa2\Preferences GoogleOAuth* values from a working maschine, to the user.reg worked fine for Google authentication  till ~2015-01-15.
 
Now I'm searching for a fix for a while, because the GoogleOAuth Entries won't work any more and Picasa tries to open the google authentication webseite. But this fails.
 
I'm using Ubuntu 14.10 utopic with POL 4.2.5.
I've also tried wine 1.7.35 and it seams working as well. But I get the same Error: Bei der Authentifizierung Ihres Kontos ist ein Fehler aufgetreten (~Authentication Error)
 
I've moved the depency walker to the wineprefix and added a link to open depends.exe
 
But now there are a lot of missing dependencies.
 
And I've no idear where and how to start. Direct Dependencies to PICASA3.EXE are markt red:
 
KERNEL32.DLL
 
COMCTL32.DLL
 
DDRAW.DLL
 
IMM32.DLL
 
IPHLPAPI.DLL
 
VERSION.DLL

WINSPPOL.DRV
 
COMDLG32.DLL
 
ADVAPI32.DLL

Can anybody help me fixing this issue?

Well, if you get the same error, we are not going to change the script just yet. Also, don't delete comments in the scripts, as they will not be accepted if those are removed and not replaced with comments. They are there for a reason.

Honestly, this would be covered better if you posted in the forums with your full debug output and full computer specs so we can see what is going on. Without that information, we are just guessing.
Friday 6 February 2015 at 1:40
Check the bottom post here (comment 12). It says that may work.
Tuesday 28 April 2015 at 10:14
He did not remove comments, you can check in the "source" version
that's diff colouring getting confused when you fix line return style on the line just above

Same for me. Playonlinux installed Picassa 3.9 together with Wine 1.4.1 and Internet Explorer 8. Picassa works perfectly except that it is impossible to login to Google account as described by SnakeFighter. A method for signing in to Picasa 3.9 under Wine by using registry values from a Windows installation of Picasa 3.9 has been described in:

http://tsdgeos.blogspot.fr/2014/07/logging-in-into-picasa-39-under-linux.html

and this works even in the absence of Internet Explorer 8. I guess it should work too with the Playonlinux installation of Picasa 3.9

Thanks for the script!

Picsasa installs fine, but I am having a problem signing in with a Google Account.  If I click the link (top right-hand corner), the Google authentication window opens, then displays username and password field, then closes as soon as soon as the page has loaded.

A dialog appears saying "There was a problem authenitcating your account".

Any ideas?

err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.
