1) What's .bin? Why is it bin?
2) How do i run it?
Looks as though the file is not in the location you think it is.
From your terminal do:
The results should include GoogleEarth.bin
Sometimes when downloading files you have to make them executable, so try
chmod 755 GoogleEarth.bin
bin is short for binary a program file. Once the google earth binary starts to run it will take you through rest of the installation. You are running the program correct way, the problem is the file is either not executable or in a different location
Hope that helps
