A previous discussion gave excellent instructions on running the latest Picasa version on Ubuntu 11.10 , but I still can't get an effective connection between the desktop application and my online account.

Existing instructions for installation and config of connection between Picasa desktop and server

I tried the Winetricks approach, but my netbook perhaps does not have the grunt to process all the information at once. It requested I instal Gecko the first time I tried to connect with my Picasa account, but then just hangs. Having installed Winetricks, how may I uninstal it and use the application specific password approach you mention? Thanks for your assistance
