I was trying to install Picasa on Ubuntu 12.04 and first had to install Wine which came up with a EULA that I could not see how to agree to.
When trying to install Picasa from the terminal I got the following message:
ian@ian-Dimension-8100:~$ wine ~/picasa39-setup.exe The program 'wine' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install wine1.4-i386 ian@ian-Dimension-8100:~$ sudo apt-get install wine1.4-i386 [sudo] password for ian: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
How to I overcome this problem? The following are the instructions I was following:
Open a terminal by pressing Ctl+Alt+T or search terminal in Dash,then install wine and winetricks using below command
sudo apt-get install wine winetricks
Download Picasa 3.9 from Google use below command
cd ~/ && wget http://dl.google.com/picasa/picasa39-setup.exe
Install Picasa 3.9 via wine use below command
Install IE6 via winetricks
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine sh winetricks -q ie6
Done, you launch Picasa 3.9 by searching picasa in Dash now
