Re: Picasa won't start

I'm running Fedora 15 x86_64. Picasa3 would not run, and I was seeing the following when I started Picasa (from a terminal window):

[user@puter user]picasa &
/usr/bin/picasa: line 189: 14526 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper
/usr/bin/picasa: line 248: 14642 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$PIC_BINDIR"/wrapper

I found this solution via Google searches, in different places, so I have combined the fixes into one:

Install the full version of wine:
sudo yum -y install wine
[sudo] password for user:

[install takes a while]

Then do the following:
[user@puter user]$ cd /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/
[user@puter wine]$ sudo mv
[sudo] password for user:
[user@puter wine]$ sudo cp /usr/lib/wine/ /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/lib/wine/

[user@puter wine]$ cd ../../bin/
[user@puter bin]$ sudo mv wine-preloader _wine-preloader
[user@puter bin]$ sudo cp /usr/bin/wine-preloader /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/bin/

Picasa3 is now working for me, I hope this works for others.
