Picasa in Linux Mint 12

It's really easy: Don't install the picasa for Linux thats offered in a .deb file on the picasa website. It works fine, but doesn't allow you to log into your picasa webalbums anymore. Something is broken.

If you already installed it. Uninstal it using Synaptic. Uninstall it with all user content,

Then go to the picasa website and download the version 3.8 for Windows.
The  download fiile is called: picasa38-setup.exe
  open a terminal
 go to the download directory: cd /home/yourname/download
  type:  wine ./picasa38-setup.exe
  answer questions and ignore any error. After that run Picasa and select your foto directories.

It will all work fine.
