Installing Google Earth in Ubuntu
« on: September 09, 2011, 11:26:15 pm »
To install Google Earth from the UbuntuUpdates.org 3rd Party PPA Repository:
http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/ppas/80
Using this method downloads and installs Google Earth directly from dl.google.com .. and as it is a PPA repository, your Ubuntu Updater will make sure you always have the latest version

First make sure all package managers, and he updater are closed.

Then open a terminal and run these 4 commands:
Code: [Select]
wget -q -O - "https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub" | sudo apt-key add -

Code: [Select]
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/deb/ stable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list'
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install google-earth-stable

Google Earth should now be installed :) .. Have fun.
