Problem Installing Google Earth on Debian
 
Hi, I'm trying to install Google Earth.

First I got the message "you should switch to openGL mode", so I went to the site of ATI and downloaded the automatic driver installer for my video card Radeon 9600. It edited the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.

Here it is:

# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using

Then I ran google earth again and got the following message :

Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".

and the splash image just hangs.

What do I do?

Thanks

Try the version from klik. Works great for me, but I do not have an ATI card. So I am not much help there.

You might try the Googleearth forum.
