How to install Google Earth on Ubuntu

I never thought Google Earth was installed so hard. I've been hours trying to make it work until we have achieved As for me has not been easy, I do this article for people who have had the same problems as me.


When one thinks of installing Google Earth ,first thing is to look if you are in the repositories. No, not at least in Ubuntu (surely Arch yes, they are very cool ). There is a package called googleearth-package but we have no idea how it works Later perhaps we serve.

as we will Google Page ,Which are very nice people and certainly has packages for Ubuntu. Exactly! And they have 32 and 64 bits

First disappointment: On the sets which are bundles .deb and are .bin. So we did not get anywhere.

Executive because the downloaded file:

./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Everything seems to be running as smoothly until ... Bang! Error song:
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 5.2.1.1588..............................................................
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty
^
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '
^
No se pudo cargar 'setup.data/setup.xml'
The error is self explanatory ¬ ¬ 'Come on, saving you hours of searching the Internet This error has two solutions, but explain that I have followed to ensure that, despite the unwillingness of this program will be installed on my computer, Google Earth works. We will use the package that we did not know what served.
sudo apt-get install googleearth-package lsb-core ttf-mscorefonts-installer
It turns out that this package is used to generate a .deb fit for our system with which we can install Google Earth. Without further ado, the wonderful generate .deb she longed to have:
sudo make-googleearth-package --force
After a while, we will have our file, so we just install it:
sudo dpkg -i googleearth*.deb
Run the program from the terminal, I do not trust:
samuel@R580:~$ googleearth
/usr/lib/googleearth/googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
You're hesitating, right? More problems? ... ... ... Well, I save so many hours of search and tell you the solution to this problem, the end is not bad. It turns out that Google Earth is silly (I think that was clear, seeing the above errors) and search a library that we secure the system, but looks where he gives the real win. What we do is put the library in front of the eyes, so that you can not complain:
cd /usr/lib/googleearth
sudo wget http://librarian.launchpad.net/7037027/libGL.so.1 -O libGL.so.1
With this and a biscuit, we're supposed to have Google Earth installed only. Now you can cleanse the sweat of the brow
