    Found it too, though it was necessary to change my language from dutch to english.....
    64-bit rpm installed, AFAICS now, working properly

    And I was a little tired when I tested Opera,if I change language to English, US or UK, on the download page, Opera gives me the deb and rpm packages, any other language gives the .bin-installer. So Opera and FF gives the same result on my system.

    Ok @gropiuskalle, it seems that changing from German to English might give you what you want.

    perhaps they only serve up downloads to (say) Dutch speakers which
    have install instructions/etc written in the Dutch....if not install
    instructions, maybe license, terms of service or something else their
    lawyers require...

    maybe they are working on translating or whatever...write'em and
    ask...i can't imagine if they knew what a fine fellow you are (and
    your countrymen) they would not lock you out of the rpm goodie jar for
    simple meanness! (maybe by oversight...another good reason to ask them)

    Hi,

    https://dl.google.com/linux/earth/rpm/stable/x86_64
    -- does not work on my system, authentication is asked for, which I do not have, do not know where to find

    http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/rpm/stable/x86_64
    -- is accepted and appears to work

    Prior installs of googleearth should be manually removed by running the uninstall script provided with that googleearth install

    Glad you have the RPM now. But the whole thing is still rather misterious.

    And yes, you had to run the uninstall. But it was easy to find for me and it worked OK. Except that it tried to remove it's own directory, but that was easy to do myself.
