Anyone have any experience with Ubuntu? Before I take the next step and download it, I want to know of any possible ramifications with my smugmug website.
I've searched on dGrin for this info and haven't found any and if this isn't the correct thread for this question, please forgive.
While reading through the thread I see people referencing using Picasa then using it to upload the photos to SM. When I try to install the Picasa button I get an error like can't open program or which program do you want to use to run this. Have tried it with Both FF 3.5-3.6 and Opera 10 messages a little different but same results. I contacted tech support and they told me it wasn't supported, which was okay until I can here.
Matt emailed us at the helpdesk that he figured out a way to add the Picasa button on his Picasa (running via Wine). Here's what he did:
figured it out (by way of http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=898227):
1. visit http://www.smugmug.com/help/picasa-smugmug-uploader
2. copy link location for the "click here" link (looks like
3. paste into the location bar and remove everything before http (http://www.smugmug.com/photos/picasa/picasa2smugmug.pbz), slap [enter]
4. save to disk
5. Navigate to ~/.picasa or ~/.wine or ~/.winepicasa depending on how picasa
was installed. Drill down to ."../drive_c/Program
Files/Google/Picasa3/buttons" and put the .pbz file in there.
6. (re)start Picasa.
I don't know whether this might or might not work with the Linux version of Picasa. My guess is that you have to use the Windows version via Wine.
I run the straight Linux version of Picasa and following the directions it worked like a champ, I am uploading now using it. Seems a little slower than the SM Java one but still coll and handy.
The path to the buttons directory is /home/<userid>/.google/....<path below>

Is anyone having issues with the KIPI uploader plugin for digiKam?
For the past few weeks, uploads have been randomly failing with either incomplete file errors, or "Invalid user/nick" errors despite the username and password being correct (after all, photos upload sometimes...) It seems to happen more often with large files than small ones.
I'm running kipi-plugins 1.2.0 with digiKam 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 10.04. I haven't been able to find any documentation on the SmugMug plugin so far yet at all.
