Have you run this command?
2) Google Earth 7 is "LSB compliant" meaning it was built on a LSB system.
Slackware however does not have that symlink which is part of the LSB 3.0
specification. You'll need to create the symlink manually after installing
the package:

ln -sf /lib/ /lib/
Please note that the first file is ld-linux, while the second file is ld-lsb

Here's a screenshot of a Google Earth is running well on fresh installation of Slackware64-14.1 in Virtual Machine (so the screen was black since it doesn't have 3D driver running at all)

I downloaded the amd64.deb package, and I did remember to run those commands as well
