Google Earth for PCLinuxOS 64 KDE
 
The latest "one-line install" doesn't work in PCLinuxOS 64 KDE. There was a version that worked
several months ago--I don't know if it was in Synaptic, or a download from Google, but hwat's
there now is different and hangs on dependencies (apparently).
Does anyone have an rpm from a few months ago that might work, and if so, could you post it somewhere that I can download it?

(I hope this forum will notify me of an answer. I don't see that opetion.)

Hi Doug, welcome to the forum :)

Can you post the exact error messages? If you installed a 32 bit copy of GE (which is most likely the case,) your 64 bit OS won't have copies of the 32 bit libraries it needs to function. Some of the needed dependencies might be fulfilled by installing this package. You might also need to install the 64 bit copy of lsb-core.

Also, just as a suggestion, you might want to change your username using the instructions at the top of the page here, lest your email inbox ends up with a boatload of SPAM in the very near future. The "Contact Us" form is here. ;)

Johnvv: YEs I know. Here's the result of one tyr to install, similar to the "one line install" Finally I tried to "uninstall" it and it said it was not installed.

Code:

If you tell me how to change the username, I will. I seem to remember that this is what I was asked to use as a user name. Also it seems that this forum will not notify me of answers.

Me again: Here's the "one-line install" that Google says works in all Linuxes, and the result. After the last line nothing happens--there is no icon on the desktop, and
typing googleearth does nothing. There is a box or window that comes up and if you try and get rid of it, it says something like 'the program is not installed, Do you want to close it?" or words to that effect.

did you READ the error ?

you are missing some dependency's

A 'bin' file is a binary and what to do with it is explained at the link below.

You seem to have missing dependencies so I don't know that will work. Can you not use Synaptic to install it? You could try downloading the rpm version from the googleearth site. Make sure you get the correct version (32 or 64bit). Installing an rpm explained at the link below.

For some reason the last post didn't make it. Here's the answer, as found by someone (Frazella) on the PCLOS forum:

You must open up to the Google Earth site from a Chrome browser. Otherwise the Linux choices do not show up. When you

When you do that, you get two rpm and two deb versions, one each for 32-bit and 64-bit.

NO, the rpm and deb show up just fine in Mozilla seamonkey and firefox

dmcgarrett@optonline.net 09-25-2016 12:29 AM

You are probably using something other than PCLinuxOS. The rpm you posted does not work in pclos, and the rpm that does work does not show up in Firefox or PaleMoon in pclos.
Here's the rpm that works for a 64-bit system:

google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

In case any reader is unfamiliar with the use of rpm, here's how: "rpm -Uvh filename.rpm" minus the quotes, from a root environment--su or in some distros, sudo.

At any rate, I now have Google-Earth installed and working fine, and if something else works for you, that's fine also.

I sus[ect there's enough information here to get anybody up to date with this.
