Google Earth 5.0 Installation Problems

Nabble – ubuntu-users – Google Earth 5.0 Installation Problems.

Wondering why your brand new installation of Google Earth 5.0 isn’t working in Ubuntu?  Is it crashing after it gets done with the splash screen, or generally just not starting up?

An odd problem, but one with an easy fix — just go to the folder where you installed Google Earth (the program files, not the shortcut), and delete or move the file called “”.

And that’s it — wierd, but it works.
