Now the program starts OK but displays only a single tile in the top left corner. I have been searching and it seems this is a common problem with this version of GE. It seems it may be a problem with incompatibility with the NVidia video card or driver.
I have a vague recollection of having faced this issue before and just returning to an earlier version of GE. It is a vague memory and maybe it was in Windows or maybe something else entirely but I think I went back to an earlier version.
So what is the best course of action? Go back to the earlier version of GE? Change video driver?
I am also having a lot of heavy flickering with TeamViewer and I wonder if it may be caused by the video driver and if trying a different driver might resolve this issue as well as the Google Earth issue.
I have read the "nouveau" driver causes problems and I see that appears in my configuration. Maybe somebody can explain?
This youtube video How To Fix Video Tearing | Nvidia Driver | Linux seems like it may be related but, frankly it all goes right over my head. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can guide me.
BTW, the onboard graphics Intel Xeon E3-1200 I am not really using and could be disabled.
E.T.A: Also BTW after updating Google earth i was getting a "keyring password" error and I had to spend some time searching until I found a solution which seemed to be deleting the key ring password and letting it ask for a new one... or something. I don't even understand what's going on here or why this would happen when updating Google Earth. I should have left it alone.
