Howto Install GoogleEarth 6 on Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits

First of all, download the GoogleEarth installer from google.

If you try to setup you’ll probably get this error:

$ ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty  ^ setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found  ^ Couldn't load 'setup.data/setup.xml'

You’ll have to uncompress it and make this changes:

<pre>./GoogleEarthLinux.bin --target /tmp/ge
cd /tmp/ge/setup.data/bin/Linux/amd64/
mv setup.gtk setup.gtk2
cd /tmp/ge

Now, If you get this error when executing googleearth

exec: 50: ./googleearth-bin: not found

You may need to install this package:

sudo apt-get install lsb-core

And now all works great!
