Google Earth again (64 bit)


Installed in Slackware-14.2, google earth pukes reliably for me.
Code:
./googleearth: line 43: ./googleearth-bin: No such file or directory
I have a vague memory of a missing symlink library issue causing this in 32 bit form. This is my first 64 bit install, and sure enough I seem embarrassed for linux-vdso.so.1. Should that be a symlink to something, and if so, to what? Any other ideas?

Google earth is now also available in 64 bits. Just follow the README and it works. At least here it does.

@willysr: Thanks for the link to the README, that sorted it. I knew it was a library symlink.

Question What happened to the icon in the 64 bit version?

This is just a minor gripe about Google Earth 64 - but what happened to the icon, or is it just me?

I'm surprised he got it to build since the src package from Google is newer than either the 14.1 or 14.2 slackBuild is meant to use.
I know this because I just spent about an hour trying to find the old build somewhere online with no luck, finally Emailing the maintainer just before coming here.

I have them in /opt/google/earth/free/product_logo_*.png. Everything from 16 to 256 bits

probably due to the icon-theme you are using?

I considered that, so I went into LXDE and changed to different themes and no luck. I even decided to log out and come back in to see if that made a difference, and nothing. I am looking into LXQT, but the problem I have with that is the dependencies that it requires, is just too much of a pain (Wayland, etc). So I guess LXDE since it is so deprecated and not really maintained it seems, to slowly become more and more broken .

Make a new user, log into it real quick, see if the icon shows up with the new user; if so then you will have at least narrowed the issue down.

That was it, I created a test user and the Google Earth icon is normal - so I guess I have to nuke the lxpanel directory in .config folder then. Will be a pain, since I will have to redo all my customization - oh well...

-edit

That did not work - so not sure what other directory I have to nuke to correct this issue.

It was .google-earth itself in my home directory - deleted that, and now the icon is normal.
