Question Google Earth Solutions?


Anybody have a Google Earth Solution? It didnt work in F17 and now F18 as well. Slackware has a work around for it. Don't know about Fedora if it does.

What have you tried and what is the problem? With no details, answers are difficult.

I had a problem on Ubuntu a couple of years ago; GoogleEarth ran for root, but not for user. It turned out to be permissions.

Knowing that this issue was over three months old might have been helpful background information.

Have you tried installing the googleearth binary direct from Google? It might be worth a giving it a whirl for testing purposes.

I have it running on Slackware --Current on two machines, both 32-bit. I installed it from the SlackBuild, though.

I installed from Google's binary on my Debian machine and it works just fine, but, again, it's 32-bit.

Sorry I can't help more.

Edit: If you try to start googleearth from the command line, does it throw any errors different from the ones contained in the bug report or is it just the same old story?

No Problem. Most likely its the RPM packages that have the problem.

Hello,

If you get some problems with GE, install the 6.2 version, not the 7.0, this last one doesn't work in F17, and no more in 18 viewing the many complaints....
