Install Google Earth on Ubuntu 12.04-11.10-Linux Mint

By Umair Sunday, February 05, 2012

Google Earth is a cross-platform program that lets you fly virtually to any spot on the earth to view satellite imagery of countries, cities, maps, terrain, oceans, 3D buildings, and even outer space can be viewed from this program.

The latest stable version currretly available is 6.2, which we will see how to install under Ubuntu 11.10/12.04. Install first these dependencies, the second package is for fixing awkward font (unreadable font) in Google Earth:
 sudo apt-get install lsb-core msttcorefonts  

Then install Google Earth 6.2 with the following commands:

For Ubuntu (32-bit):
 wget -O google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb  
 sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb  

For Ubuntu (64-bit):
 wget -O google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb  
 sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb  

Log out and log in back, then start Google Earth from the Menu.
