No, but they've only just released the Mac version and I *believe* they said something about a linux version to follow.

Google Earth may not be available yet, but maps.google.com works great in Firefox under Linux. It doesn't do it all, but it's a good start.

(too bad it doesn't work in Konqueror, though....)

Well, for me maps.google.com works just fine in Konqueror as well as in Firefox.
