People using Google’s Picasa on their Ubuntu Linux OS might get a little bit confused about the grey systray icon, which just doesn’t seem to belong there.

Guess what, it really doesn’t.

Google utilises wine to get their so-called Linux port to run. This reminded me of my attemp to humanise wine applications a while back. So trying to apply this to Picasa just seemed naturally.

At first I encountered a little problem, Picasa doesn’t use the system wide wine installation but instead a static one. After noticing this, all was left to do was to find the user.reg file, which as I found out is located at

~/.picasa/user.reg

Now just put the colour codes into the [Control Panel\\Colors]-section of that file.
