I have Mint 19.3 Mate. Downloaded what is supposed to be the stable edition from the software repository. Could not get it to work properly. I ended up downloading the lastest stable linux version direct from Google Earth website. It works flawlessly. I have a computer with Mint Mate 20 and the stable version I got from Google Earth website works great on it too.
It works well, I like it ( Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon ).
@HansMint EU/DE Danke für den Tipp! Eine sehr interessante App (bis auf diesen kleinen Bug)! Mit dem Browser Chromium inklusive Google Earth, hat man jetzt die Wahl. @HansMint Brexitania/UK Thanks for the tip! A very interesting app (except for this little bug)! With the browser Chromium including Google Earth, you now have the choice.
Awesome product! It can happen that search and routing is not working. The reason is wrongly converted floating point numbers. To correct this add line ' export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 ' without quotes before last line in /opt/google/earth/pro/googleearth (edit as root) see: https://support.google.com/earth/thread/3317150?hl=en
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 (22.214.171.12495-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
