I have just installed Picasa using

sudo apt-get install wine winetricks 
cd ~/ && wget 
wine ~/picasa39-setup.exe

It is installed, because I can start it from the shell. How can I add an icon to the dash to easily start Picasa in Ubuntu 12.10 (as I had in 12.04)?

Well, apparently after I restarted the computer Ubuntu Dash identified Picasa and I am now able to add it to the sidebar.
