Google doesn't work with Ubuntu 8.04
 
Hi all,
I've tried to install Google tools in my Ubuntu Hardy Heron. I've followed some steps I report below. The install process at at first look is ok, but as I run Google Earth, only the splash screen appairs and the program drops immediately. I don't undersatand what is my mistake.

I rerport the detailed steps I've followed.

===================================0
django@django-desktop:~$ wget http://dl.google.com/earth/client/cu...EarthLinux.bin
--12:19:30-- http://dl.google.com/earth/client/cu...EarthLinux.bin
=> `GoogleEarthLinux.bin'
...

12:20:05 (712.75 KB/s) - "GoogleEarthLinux.bin" salvato [25338751/25338751]

django@django-desktop:~$ chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin
django@django-desktop:~$ ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 5.0.11337.1968..............................................................
...
./googleearth-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/i686/cmov/libssl.so.0.9.8: symbol BIO_test_flags, version OPENSSL_0.9.8 not defined in file libcrypto.so.0.9.8 with link time reference
And this happens as I try to use Google Desktop:
django@django-desktop:~$ wget http://dl.google.com/linux/deb/pool/...rrent_i386.deb
...
django@django-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i google-desktop-linux_current_i386.deb
====================================

Thanks in advance.

Maybe googleearth has already existed in repository, at least this is the case in Ubuntu 8.10, and if so, you'd better install it using apt-get like this:
Code:

apt-get install googleearth

Tried ./googleearth and the aptitude way. The prob is the same. Only the splash screen starts.
OR more precisely, at firest starts the splash, a fraction of second after a porgram run but it stops immediately.

five seconds Googling the error message - often, you can answer questions yourself a LOT faster by doing a little searching yourself.

Thanks a lot
