google earth install error

Hi, I am trying to install Google Earth, and when I try to run the bin file, I get this output:
bash-3.2# ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 4.1.7076.4458..........................................................................
Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
Any ideas what is up with this?

Are you trying to install this as root? If so that may be the problem, try installing as a regular user.

Rep: Reputation: 19 has a slackbuild script for GoogleEarth. Which will make a nice installable package for you.

See the HOWTO on how to use it.
