Unable to run GoogleEarth 6 on OpenSuse 11.3

Hallo:

I’m trying to run Google Earth 6 (just downloaded) on OpenSuse 11.3, kde.

The log for installing and running is:
athlon1@linux-c930:/windows/datos/Downloads> sh GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 6.0.0.1735…

  /home/athlon1/bin/googleearth: línea 49: /home/athlon1/google-earth/googleearth-bin: Conseguido
  athlon1@linux-c930:/windows/datos/Downloads>

If I install and run it as root , the error is the same.

Any suggestion.
Thanks

On Kubuntu 10.04 i find the same error.

Did you try the download again? I just downloaded and installed and it is
working perfectly. I’m in a Gnome setup and my system is x86_64 and
English-based so maybe that makes a difference.

Good luck.

Same here. Google Earth 6.0 installs fine, but does not run. The Terminal error message I get (in English) is:

/home/james/bin/googleearth: line 49: /home/james/google-earth/googleearth-bin: No such file or directory
/home/james/bin/googleearth: line 49: /home/james/google-earth/googleearth-bin: Success

And then, nothing, it just dies.

Thank You,

I installed it yesterday over a previous installation and it works. Did you check the existence of **/home/james/google-earth/ **directory? in your teminal error I see /home/james/bin/googleearth

Hi,

I’m getting a exactly the same response.
Tried deleting the directory ‘googleearth’ and re-installing with same result.
Deleted again the directory ‘googleearth’ and re-installed googleearth 5.2.1.1588 and its ok.

I too installed over a previous 5.x version and also should note that my
previous install was in a different location (/home/me/apps/google-earth)
so that MAY make a difference, though I’d lean more toward the upgrade vs.
new install side of things personally soncisdering Viviano Guastalla’s
results.

Good luck.

just install lsb package.

its told that you need install correct LSB or try manual setup:

1 — dwl GoogleEarthLinux.bin somewhere
2 — run ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin --noexec --target ./GE and find GE in run dir
3 — go ./GE/setup.data/bin/Linux/x86
4 — cp setup.gtk setup.gtk2
5 — go back ./GE
6 — run: env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 ./setup.sh

I havent check this yet :frowning:

(By the way:
I have no 64-bit system and not tried to install Google-Earth on my old laptop anyway.
And I am hoping that Open-Source and Open-Content project FreeStreetMaps will profit by the new help from Microsoft, see also:

just install lsb package

Yes, doing this in addition to following pistazienfresser’s hints does the trick.

Downloaded, installed systemwide (i.e. as root) over previous GE 5 install. Works like a charm. Chccked, lsb is installed.

yeah. but not here.

  1. It has trapped on 65-fonts-persian.conf
  2. After delete of it – on parse /etc/drirc
  3. after delete it even could showup all the pictures and windows, positioned me on starting location, correctly drew map and etc and finaly:
    gettimeofday({1291289016, 856417}, NULL) = 0
    gettimeofday({1291289016, 856538}, NULL) = 0
    gettimeofday({1291289016, 856597}, NULL) = 0
    gettimeofday({1291289016, 856626}, NULL) = 0
    gettimeofday({1291289016, 856672}, NULL) = 0
    mmap2(NULL, 6754304, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0xffffffffcdc26000
    — SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) @ 0 (0) —

any thoughts?

looks like something ogl related. intel 915

I just saw the suggestion to load lsb. I checked and it was not installed, so I installed it and now GoogleEarth 6 starts just fine. It is early here and so I have not had time to determine just what lsb provides and why I would need to install it for this one application. Anyone want to enlighten me on the subject of lsb?

Thank You,

As being constantly nosy
(and sometimes noisy)

I would be interested
also in that issue.

I would presume
it’s no perfume
but Linux Standard Base
and if that’s the case

about putting the files in the ‘right’ directories
or making links like they would be there
(could find no rhyme on that)
so to do not make a system mess.
But it is just a guess.

prying
puzzled

Thanks. Does the business.

This is within the package lsb:

lsb - Linux Standard Base Core

/etc/lsb-release
/etc/lsb-release.d
/etc/lsb-release.d/desktop-4.0-ia32
/etc/lsb-release.d/desktop-4.0-noarch
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-2.0-ia32
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-2.0-noarch
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-3.2-ia32
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-3.2-noarch
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-4.0-ia32
/etc/lsb-release.d/graphics-4.0-noarch
/lib/ld-lsb.so.2
/lib/ld-lsb.so.3

All files under /etc/lsb-release.d/ are of zero size. And:

> ll /lib/ld-lsb.so.*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13  2. Dez 11:05 /lib/ld-lsb.so.2 -> ld-linux.so.2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13  2. Dez 11:05 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 -> ld-linux.so.2

I guess this is needed for compatibility with some standard.

Installing lsb package, it WORKS FINE.

In openSUSE 11.3 this package seems to have no description. But in factory
software.opensuse.org: “lsb” as a short one:

Necessary files and dependencies for the Linux Standard Base (LSB) Core.

But to be candid - I do not really know how these things are working.

I have a different issue. GE 6 loads fine but the maps don’t show. The map window is black. If I search for a location, the map turns dark gray and the dialog box pops up with the description of the place I have searched for; but no map. I uninstalled and reinstalled but nothing changed. Selecting “view in google maps” instantly downloads the map to the window but it is not a GE map. Any ideas?

KDE 4.5.3 working its way up to 4.5.4 as I type
opensuse 11.3

Forgot to mention: I performed the tweaks listed in this thread.
