they do not have a precompiled version ?

most distros already have a precompiled version try searching for it with your package manager

What distro? I know this works in Ubuntu:

cd to directory of .bin file.

type sh NameOfFile.bin

Follow the onscreen prompts

That should install it in the default location:
/usr/local/Google/Google-earth

Just to add, you may need to chmod u+x it first.

hi thanks, it looks as if it was supposed to work (shortcut under Internet apps), but it doesn't actually run. The installation said installed successfully; when running google-earth from the icon, it shows ons the task panel, but after awhile, disappears. It seems as if there is a problem. When running in a terminal, it reports an error
Quote:
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: ./libminizip.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
I did chmod the /opt/google-earth directory.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I haven't installed it, but I've read that the following command should work:
Code:
su -c 'sh GoogleEarthLinux.bin'

Note: the name of the file should be "GoogleEarthLinux.bin", not "GoogleEarth.bin".
