Fixing "Order Prints" in Picasa 3 Under Linux

Next to F-Spot and Shotwell (the new default in Ubuntu) Picasa is, in my opinion, still one of the best photo management programs for the Linux desktop.

If you like to print picture / calendars / albums online, the Shop or Order Prints function in Picasa is quite useful. It allows you to upload pictures directly to your favorite photo printing service. Since some months, however, this function just presented a grey page. I finally took the time to investigate and thanks to a posting to to the Google-Labs-Picasa-for-Linux group the solution is incredibly simple:

Open /opt/google/picasa/3.0/wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Google/Picasa3/runtime/defaults.ini in your favorite editor and change
