just run it to install it i expect... that's java of something big like that? you might need to set it as executable first if it's not already "chmod +x file.bin" then just run it "./file.bin"

This depends on the package. Some have uninstallers, but most don't so you have to manually remove the package from your system. What did you install?

The default installation location is /usr/local/google. I am sure you can just delete that and google earth will be removed from your system.
