Please note however, that all the installed applications will be lost, however the settings and files in your home directory will be preserved.

The trick is to install Windows Internet Explorer under wine and then install the Windows version of Picasa. To do this, make sure you have wine installed and picasa removed from your system.
This is how you do it:
