Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

sbopkg has options to "just build", and "build and install"
Look in /usr/bin for GoogleEarth.
If it's not there then look in /tmp
If it's in /tmp just install it if you could not find it in /usr/bin.
The 1st time you run GoogleEarth it takes awhile to start.
If it's installed you should have an icon in the internet section of the K-menu.
will also start it.
hope this helps.
Ohh, I see. So there are two possibilities: a) Wait until they lunch a 64 bit version or install multilib. In that case (multilib) How do I have to install GoogleEarth after installing multilib? Can I install it with sbopkg directly and it will work?
Thanks for your answer!
After installing multilib, it doesn't work either. I've installed it through sbopkg again and nothing. How did you guys install it?
You really need to do exactly what alein Bobs slack document says to do. trust me it works and has been tested for a long time. then install google to default /opt.
This problem is not slackwares it is the google problem. I run a true 64bit I also have slack13 in 32 bit. would rather keep them separate.
Generally question for slackware64_13:
Missing rar program for 64bit!!!!!!!!
where i copy the libflashplayer.so for firefox??????(...in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugin doesn't work,either to $HOME/.mozilla/plugins )
Now, google earth starts but it shows no map. What I mean is that te portion of the screen that shows the world (planisphere) is grey and shows no images. The rest seems to work fine.
My graphic card is nVidia 7300gt. nvidia driver was installed. Do I need to enable "DRI" or something like that to xorg.conf?
I agree with slackass, you should recompile and reinstall your video drivers after changing to multilib. You don't need to download that libGL file (I recommend that you delete it to). I'm running slack64 13.0 and after following Alien's guide Google Earth is working perfectly well. I didn't download any extra files, just used the slackbuilds.org installation.
Edit: @mpregos: There should be a rar extractor at slackbuilds.org, try that (I know I have one ). /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ should be OK for installing flash player, make sure you get the 64 bit version.
