Thread: Google Earth at openSUSE_15.3 is it working?

  1. #1

    Default Google Earth at openSUSE_15.3 is it working?

    Does anyone have Google Earth working on openSUSE_15.3?

    It can be downloaded from here: https://support.google.com/earth/ans...rect-installer

    However, when I install it I get:
    Problem: nothing provides 'mesa-libGLU' needed by the to be installed google-earth-pro-stable-7.3.4.8248-0.x86_64

    However this packages in not available officially:
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/mesa-libGLU

    Now there is a mesa-libglu package available via the community:
    https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/lemmy04/openSUSE_Leap_15.3/noarch/

    When I install this one, rpm does not complain about the dependency.

    But google-earth still does not start.

    (the install script in the rpm complains about 'atd' missing:
    service: no such service atd
    /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.lkSoh4: line 504: at: command not found
    )

    Anyway is there a working GoogleEarth possible at openSUSE_15.3?

    Hi
    Ignore the atd and lib (openSUSE uses different package name) errors , that is a post install script to run an update, I also remove any cron jobs etc...

    7.3.3 is not working for me either

    Might be that my videocard is not working with Google Earth. It used to work in the past.
    This is at openSUSE_15.3

    I tried to install to 'oldest' available version (7.3.0), but that's not working too

    This one required some additional packages, being:
    at
    bc
    libHX28
    libfl2
    lsb

    But as stated before, GE is not working.

    If you go to pkgs.org, you can find an rpm of the mesa file (or a version similar to what is called for). I install it first. Then Google Earth installs ok.

    With Tumbleweed I just click on the "break google earth and install it anyway" option. It works perfectly.

    About mesa-libglu package: I know how to get around that.
    openSUSE community provides one, that can be installed, which I mentioned in the initial description.
    Including the fact that Google Earth keeps on crashing even with that mesa-libglu pkg installed.

    BTW: https://pkgs.org/download/mesa-libGLU does not have a version for openSUSE.

    Hi
    Mesa-libglu is not needed, it is a packaging error on google, as long as libGLU1 is installed should be good to go.

    Tested with both intel and nvidia (offload) gpu's all good here on GNOME DE...

    Installation works the same way with Tumbleweed. However:

    Code:
    karl@erlangen:~> LANG=C /opt/google/earth/pro/googleearth 
    /opt/google/earth/pro/googleearth: line 21:  7635 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) "$(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")/googleearth-bin" "$@" 
    karl@erlangen:~> 
    
    Any idea how to fix this?

    I have build a dummy package of mesalibGLU, if you install it, it will only resolve the google-earth dependency error and install the openSUSE lib, which has this file as lib inside:
    Code:
    rpm -q --requires mesa-libGLU
    libGLU1
    libGLU1-32bit
    rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
    rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
    rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
    rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1
    Code:
    rpm -q --provides mesa-libGLU
    mesa-libGLU = 0.0.1-lp153.6.14
    So mesa-libGLU is installed and the openSUSE lib, which has the same feature, will be installed if not done before.
