google earth on pclinuxos.... crashes with signal 11, and very large text on dialogs


hi

i have a laptop with pclinuxos 2010 installed on it. when i install google earth (v5.1) from the repo it works fine and looks fine EXCEPT when i click on file>open or file>save.. it crashes immediately with signal 11 is printed on the terminal (when started from the gui it only dies and nothing else). btw i can open other dialogs like options with no problem
so i removed it and installed the one from google (v5.2) and it can open and save files fine but every thing is very large, the buttons and the text on them... the maps and images looks good and the text on them is ok too... but i can't work with it cos the buttons are filling the screen
how can i fix either problems??? or for the sake of the science both

i appreciate any help

if you 'ldd /path/to/googleearth-bin' you'll find it depends on QT. So if you install qtconfig (whatever it's called qtconfig, qt3-qtconfig, qt4-qtconfig, qtconfig4) and configure settings there it should take. Anonther way may be to examine settings in your ~/.googleearth/Registry/google/googleearthplus/User/render/ directory (probably the *font* files), make a backup and change those.

hi
thanks for the reply...
i changed the qt settings but that did not affect google earth... the setting affects other qt based applications including the setting window.
and here is the content of ~/.googleearth/

Code:
~]$ls .googleearth/
Cache/      instance-running-lock@          myplaces.backup.kml  myplaces.kml.tmp
crashlogs/  myplaces.backup-20-12-2010.kml  myplaces.kml         Temp/
what else can i do???

Kind of odd missing all that but maybe I'm running an old version. What Google Earth version is this? Does it have something like a /etc/googleearth directory?
