    Be sure that you run the installer as a regular user. Do not run it as root

    bash: ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin: Permiso denegado

    What video card are you running and what driver for it? GE requires a 3D accel driver.

    Im using a HD2600XT. Radeon opensource 6.13.0 drivers on kernel 2.6.34. 3D acceleration is working fine, as i was able to launch previous versions of GE correctly.
