    Default Google Earth

    I note that Google Earth crash in Opensuse 11.3 RC1:

    ""
    predieri@predieri-PC:~> googleearth
    Fatal error in __driConfigOptions line 1, column 0: unknown encoding.
    Google Earth has caught signal 6.



    We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
    This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal

    Hello predieri, sorry to hear you had a problem installing GoogleEarth on openSUSE 11.3 RC1. After I read your message, I decided to give it a try myself.

    I was able to install GoogleEarth version 5.2.1.1329 (beta) and run it without a problem using openSUSE 11.3 RC1. My rig is a 64 bit installation, I am using KDE and I am using the nVidia Binary video driver.

    Why not tell use more about your system installation to see if we might understand why it is not working on your computer.

    Thank You,

    Thanks for attention.

    1) OpenSUSE 11.3 RC 1 - Kde - 32 bit
    2) Video card ATI HD 3650 AGP
    3) Video driver standard X11 Radeonhd version 1.3.0
    4) Google earth version 5.2.1.1329 (last stable version from google site)

    The sam version of google earth is OK in OpenSUSE 11.2. but with Ati proprietary driver (fglrx).

    Thanks and regards

    Lots of people reporting errors with version 5.2.1 I have not read the threads properly yet, but I have the same problem on 11.2 32 bit with KDE and using Intel 965

    Found a brutal workaround that works for me.

    On the Google Earth download screen, select Advanced option, this will then give you a choice of whether to download the current version 5.2 or the previous version 5.1, I selected the previous version and it flies fine. YMMV

    Direct link to Advanced option screen

    If you prefer better looking fonts you can download an rpm for opensuse.

    32 bit http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...-51.1.i586.rpm

    64 bit http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...1.1.x86_64.rpm

    It really sounds like you need the ATI binary driver in order to use the beta version of GoogleEarth, just as I was doing with the nVidia driver. So it is most likely a video driver problem with the GoogleEarth beta and dropping back one version with GoogleEarth allows you to use the normally installed ATI driver that comes with openSUSE 11.3 RC1.
