All is forgiven. Version 18.104.22.16864 did not work, but version 22.214.171.12485 works fine. Awesome program!!!
Google Earth stopped working on LMDE 5 when I upgraded to version 126.96.36.19964-r0. I'm downgrade to previous vertion manualy. And disable from "Software Sources" the "Google Earth Repository".
Amazing imagery! (Though, longitude zero does not pass htrough George Airy's telescope at Greenwich, and there can be tears in the image near the poles, and image registration can be a hundred yards off - compare images of the same place at different times) Installation on Mint 21 went fine, but, as with Mint 20.1, the software update process is damaged) and the followng appears: GPG error: http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/deb stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 4EB27DB2A3B88B8BThe repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/deb stable InRelease' is not signed. Via the advice of Prsman below, that complaint vanishes while "W: http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/deb/dists/stable/InRelease: Key is stored in legacy trusted.gpg keyring (/etc/apt/trusted.gpg), see the DEPRECATION section in apt-key(8) for details." appears. However, the update manager will now proceed to update Google Earth.
Linux Mint 20.03, works great and much better than windows.
So.... It is a good program in itself, but it miserably fails with positioning the "camera" when searching for a place or when searching for a route. And the route is consisted of two belts around the globe, made up of five or six rows of stars of blue roadmarks.
You will need to add the google keys to software sources wget -q -O - https://dl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -
Works totally perfect (Linux Mint 20.1 Cinammon)
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 (188.8.131.5295-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!
