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.

Please start Googleearth from a command line, cut and paste the error messages you get in this thread.

Can't fix 'it doesn't work'.

I glad you had success, could you mark the thread 'solved' and provide a short explanation as to what fixed it for others that come across the thread ?

You are welcome.

SOLVED

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.
ciao,

Solved? really?

Would it also be helpful that when the thread is marked as solved the solution is included in the thread. Sorry, maybe I missed it but what was the solution?

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:

/home/username/.googleearth/crashlogs/crashlog-4fced268.txt

Please include this file if you submit a bug report to Google.
[username@localhost ~]$ googleearth
Google Earth has caught signal 6.


Here is what hat crashlog file contains:
Major Version 5
Minor Version 2
Build Number 0001
Build Date Sep 1 2010
Build Time 11:25:42
OS Type 3
OS Major Version 2

OS Patch Version 7
Crash Signal 6

I'm at loss with this..
I've installed a Fedora version of the latest Google Earth. That's the only one that seems to be working (or trying to work) in Mandriva environment.

Any ideas?

thanks

I've just had this on slackware-13,37 and found a solution

cd /lib
ln -s ld.2.13.so ld-lsb.so.3

(ld-2.13.so is ld-linux.so)

Now WHY, I dunno.
