Howto install the current version of Googleearth

Post by colyn »

If you want to install the latest current version of Googleearth follow these simple steps and you will have it up and running in no time.

First though you will need to purge any installs or attempts at installing Googleearth.

These terminal entries have to be entered exactly as typed below so you may want to copy/paste into your terminal.

To start: Open a terminal and enter

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install lsb-core
Once done enter

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install googleearth-package
After the package is installed enter

Code: Select all

sudo make-googleearth-package --force
This process will take several minutes and you will see many warning notices but ignore them.

Once the above process is completed close the terminal and go to your /home folder where you will find a googleearth_xx.deb package. Double-click it and follow instructions.

Once installed you should have the Googleearth link in your Internet folder.

Enjoy
