Google Earth bin file


I have managed to download the file GoogleEarthLinux.bin to my desktop in Linux Mint. However I get the message when clicking on it

Could not display "/home/myname/Desktop/GoogleEarthLinux.bin. The file is of an unknown type".

Can anyone help with a suggestion to install it please? Thanks

open a terminal, and type

Code:
cd /home/myname/Desktop/
chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin
./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

I think Linux Mint has GoogleEarth on the repositories. Try to install from there.

Thanks repo and ammorais. The first method worked so I didn't get to checkout the second.
