Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1, 14.2
I had it installed for a long time on Mandy, I have since switched to Magia, and have it on there also.
If you have a 64 bit install, you need the 32 bit comparability libs installed. Magia is my backup system. My main system is Slackware 13.37 64 bit. I do not have it on there, however I have v-box installed, with XP as the guest, and GoogleEarth is on there.
So take your pick of how you wan to do it.
If mandy is a 32 bit system, the binary should install and work.
I must confess that I didn't solve it. It was done by a friend who is much more computer savvy than I am.
He said he got the solution from the google site and that he also saw it on the mandriver site.
Nevertheless I am grateful to you guys on LQ for your help.
FYI trumpace, you mark a thread as solved by using the Thread Tools Menu located just above your first post. That way, the thread title gets marked [SOLVED] and everyone is aware of that at once.
I ran into same problem. I use Mandriva 2010 32-bit distro. I installed the latest version of Google Earth. It seems to be installed but when I click on the icon nothing happens. I've tried Cliff's suggestion of running it from a console. I got this error:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal
circumstances. A bug report and debugging data have been written
to this text file:
