Advised by in a pop-up in my working non-pro version of GoogleEarth to update it to lastest version. Downloaded and installed the deb package and it doesn't work! Starts up but the splash screen never disappears and the map never appears. My system has the recommended hardware requirements so what is going on? I have tried all the usual fixes and non work. Very disappointing and very Google.
It suddenly stopped working from June 2020 on Linux Mint Cinnamon 32 and 64. Very useful program. It also happend one year ago on windows without google chrome installed. Let's see what's the next worse move.
Won't run in the mate terminal; it says command not found
Incredibly fast!! After moving from Windows I'm not coming back.
It works just fine on MATE 19.3 MSI Gaming Armor RX-580 8GB
It works great on my mint cinnamon 19.2
Mint 19.1 / GeForce GT 710 / Nvidia driver 390.116. Seemed fine, no application crash, I can manually rotate the globe... BUT when searching for locations, the globe rotates to coordinates 0°N 0°E and never leaves it afterwards. Very annoying, this bug makes google-earth-pro-stable (126.96.36.19995-r0) pretty useless in the end... Something to do with my French locale?...
Neither the .deb downloaded from Google nor this version renders the output area and there is no hint for what to do to fix it, and I can't find any setting about graphics rendering...
It did not work with nouveau driver, after I changed it to Nvidia binary it works like a charm.
Often, the errors we receive when we run certain applications on our machines are the result of failures in hardware rather than in the application. The application is excellent, the result of a hard and dedicated work of many people. Let's cherish this wonderful work! And Google, for making this excellent software available to us, users, especially to Linux users. Google Thanks!
After downloading a Pop-Up appears and says to download an newer Version. After installing that one, nothing worked. The map did not even load on my Linux Mint 19.1 PC.
No package to download
Excellent application for browsing through maps.
works great , hope it continues
Fantastic. This is Google Earth PRO (by the way). Their last build date (at the time of this review) was Oct 31 2018. It is now Jan 7 2019 (a little over two months?). It works perfectly (searches and all) on Mint 19.1 Cinnamon, and far (FAR) better than any globe I ever had as a kid. :) Sorry if access to their digital satellites in OUTER SPACE fail to impress some of you.
If I search a place - any place - GoogleEarth drops me in the Atlantic Ocean, many miles away from the western African coast. Mint 19.1 Tessa Xfce, same trouble with LM's previous versions. Useless, unless I already know where the place I'm looking for is. As for the "manual" navigation, it works pretty well.
Works perfect on my computer
Works well on my computer.
Mint 18.3 XFCE - GE installed well, and seems to function ok. But, it remains a piece of Google bloated crapware designed without any consistency in its functioning. Example, finds an address well, then when clicking the search result in southern France, it zooms out to approximately geo-stationary distance focussing Africa. Roll back to France and click the marker of the found address, BANG, the same happens. Don want to deal with unintuitive or not well functioning bloatware. UNINSTALLED.
I installed "Linux Mint 19" Scan "Xfce - BETA Release". The goole earth worked badly. I installed Nvidia-driver-390. the problem is resolved.
