    Try:
    1)Alt+F2 and type picasa
    2) Open a Terminal and type picasa
    3) In the Menu find and click on "Run" and type picasa

    You may need to manually edit your Menu to add Picasa

    what is the output when you type picasa in terminal?
    it should be in apps-graphics

    2.7 would not run for me either, so i installed 3.0 instead and it runs fine.

    You did not inadvertently try to install the Windows version of Picasa through Wine?

    Did you download it from here: http://picasa.google.com/linux/download.html ?
    I'm thinking about it

    Cheers from a fellow Aussie.. this worked for me too. I contemplated installing the beta but decided to comment out my test repo and just installed the stable... pfft. Didnt work... heard the hdd ticking over but nothing. Picasa 3 beta started up right away!

    Cheers
