I use Picasa for years and decades, I still think it is the best photo management software. Forget the mac version, Picasa is a 32-bit application, and macOS from Catalina is 64-bit only. Besides MBP, I also have a T430, which is an old but fast laptop, I love it. On this computer, I created a partition for Picasa only in exFAT format can provide Windows and Linux as well, yes it’s multi bootable.
Here is the way to mount the partition automatically per-user instead of systematically mount as root.
- From the Ubuntu dash (click logo in top left) find startup applications or press Alt+F2 and type gnome-session-properties
- Push the Add button.
- Choose a name, paste in your command and push the Add button. Here is the command
udisksctl mount --block-device /dev/disk/by-uuid/<uuid>
