      for Red Hat/Fedora/Suse/Mandriva i386 or x86_64

    picasa_3.0-current_i386.deb

        for Debian/Ubuntu i386

      picasa_3.0-current_amd64.deb

      Download the appropriate file for your distribution. For Ubuntu, just double click on the .deb file and the Gdebi Package Installer should open up.

      You can find it on the Ubuntu menu under Applications->Graphics->Picasa->Picasa.

      The first time you run it you'll have to accept the license agreement.

      Once you agree to the license it will start scanning your hard drive for pictures. After that you should be good to go.
