Googleearth reports /usr/lib/googleearth/goggleearth-bin: not found


Hello folks, Running Debian Squeeze, liquorix kernel on 2.4 ghz intel based pc. Installed google earth 6 with smxi. no errors reported with smxi. when I run gogleearth from terminal I get an error " /usr/lib/googleearth/goggleearth-bin: not found". I looked and there is no such file there. Found on an Unbuntu forum one poor sole had the same problem on Unbuntu 10.XX. his solution was to install lsb-core and it worked. It didn't work for me and I still get the error and the file is not there, as expected. thanks, Jon

If that's the case then you can do it by using link. Look for the 'goggleearth-bin' file, usually LSB installs it via /opt directory, if not use 'find' to find it--
Code:
--# find / -iname 'goggleearth-bin'
Just be sure run 'find' as root to be able to descend into all directories.

After finding where the installer located the needed *bin make a link accordingly:

Code:
--# ln -s /where/it/is/found.bin /usr/lib/googleearth/goggleearth-bin
Just make a try, who knows if it will solve?

Hope it helps. Good luck.

thanks for this hint, as I had the same problem right now and installing lsb-core did fix it
As for your problem, I don't know why the executable is missing, but since you use debian, you could try another way for installation.
First download googleearth from the google homepage, then install 'googleearth-package' (with apt-get) and use that to build a debian package (make-googleearth-package --force). This at least worked for me.

search as suggested shows googleearth-bin does not exist anywhere on my root directory. Lots of other googleearth stuff is installed but why not this file? In debian Lenny (same computer, difrent disc) which it installed and works fine it is in /DebLenny/opt/google-earth/googleearth-bin. Uninstalled and used smxi to upgrade OS, tried reinstall with same results.
Any suggestions welcome, Jon

As reported that google earth is working on sid, I upgraded to sid with smxi. I uninstalled the non functioning instalation and then installed with smxi. I still recieve error that " /usr/lib/googleearth/goggleearth-bin: not found". I confermed with comand "# find / -iname 'googleearth-bin' that it is not there. Just why is it not getting installed? any direction and help welcome, Thanks, Jon
