I'm going to have to disagree there.  I tried f-spot, gtkam, and several
others, and could never find one that managed photos as well as Picasa. 
For me (on jaunty), Picasa has been stable, easy to use, and has the
library management features i'm looking for (like being able to actually
index 15K photos without crashing).

Stephen, do you have the Google deb repository defined in your software
sources?  If so, just try opening a terminal and running 'sudo apt-get
install picasa'.
