Google’s Picasa is available for Linux.

Filed under: Google, Linux, Open Source, Photos — Hogg @ 11:41 am

Picasa is arguably and in my opinion the best free photo management software available. So if you take any digital pictures whatsoever, you need this program.

I found out today via Digg that Google has now made their awesome photo software available for Linux users.

It comes in several ready-to-eat packages such as rpm, deb, and bin for your installing convenience.

Picasa for Linux takes advantage of the WINE and Mozilla open source projects.

I was unaware of this, but Google has been in kahoots with CodeWeavers since January fixing up WINE so that Picasa would work correctly.

It’s great to see a huge company like Google working with already great open source projects.

They say it better:

  1. Chaos reigns within.
    Reflect, repent, and reboot.
    Order shall return.

    Login incorrect.
    Only perfect spellers may
    enter this system.

    This site has been moved.
    We’d tell you where, but then we’d
    have to delete you.

    Wind catches lily
    scatt’ring petals to the wind:
    segmentation fault

    ABORTED effort:
    Save and close all that you have.
    You ask way too much.

    First snow, then silence.
    This thousand dollar screen dies
    so beautifully.

    With searching comes loss
    and the presence of absence:
    “My Novel” not found.

    The Tao that is seen
    Is not the true Tao, until
    You bring fresh toner.

    The Web site you seek
    cannot be located but
    endless others exist.

    Stay the patient course
    Of little worth is your ire
    The network is down

    A crash reduces
    your expensive computer
    to a simple stone.
