Well, yes, that is version 2.7. Google also distributes version 3 for ubuntu:


However, picasa is currently at 3.8 which includes a lot of new features and improvements, which is why I'm using the wine version, which works flawlessly other than minimizing to the tray.

Can you help with this problem?
