Does someone-anyone have a method to install Google Earth that works? I have tried every suggestion in the Forum. To this point none of them have worked. I have used Pardus since 2008. I don’t want to use anything else but, I am forced to keep a Debian or Mandriva based system in my other PCs just to have Google Earth. At this point I have it installed in this Pardus system but it will not open. I have tried on older desktops, new ones, 32 bit, 64 bit nothing works. As I mentioned I have used all the forum suggestions. I can’t believe that I have it working in Debian but not Pardus. I’m not in a hurry. I do need it and want to use it. Thanks in advanced.

I think the German Pardus community has it:
http://forum.pardususer.de/index.php?topic=1954.0

In those Pisi packages:
http://www.pardususer.de/index.php?action=repository&dir=/pardus-2011/i686

Its here to (in English) the non offical packages:
http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3478.msg18496#msg18496

The Google Earth topic was up in this forum before to:
http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3588.0

I hope that can help you. Smiley

Ali Imrek from the Ozgurlukicin.com forums, who is also the coder of a program called "Paso" (Installation builder for Pardus - http://github.com/alierkanimrek/paso) has a solution;

wget https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/direct/google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm
rpmunpack google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm
cd google-earth-stable_current_i386
sudo mv opt/* /opt
sudo mv usr/bin/google-earth  /usr/bin/
sudo cp /opt/google/earth/free/product_logo_32.png /usr/share/pixmaps/google-earth.png
sudo mv /opt/google/earth/free/*.desktop /usr/share/applications/
sudo ln -s /lib/ld-linux.so.2 /lib/ld-lsb.so.3

It works...
If you get an error saying about package download, download the rpm package manually to a folder and continue with the rest by opening the terminal by pressing F4 in the very same folder.

And here is my solution:

For Pardus 2011-i686:
 Use this Pardususer.de/Community Depot/playground/atolboo/ge6/i686/GoogleEarth-6.0.2.2074-4-p11-i686.pisi
(I didn't have time yet to put it in 2. Additional (non-official) package source: for i686 (32 bit): pardususer.de, I will do this today)

This one is now available in 2. Additional (non-official) package source: for i686 (32 bit): pardususer.de.
And will also be offered as an update. Grin

For Pardus 2011-x86_64:
This it's a little more complicated.

For nVidia  video card:
  Install this ge6-lib32-64-1-1-p11-x86_64.pisi and then this GoogleEarth-6.0.2.2074-4-p11-x86_64.pisi

For ATI video cards:
 Install this ge6-fglrx32-64-1-1-p11-x86_64.pisi and then this GoogleEarth-fglrx-6.0.1.2074-4-p11-x86_64.pisi
This version is not working for all ATI video cards in P2011-x86_64.
I am still working on this one.
And later I will try to combine all the different x86_64 GE6 packages.

This is only a (more complicated) solution for i686.

My solution (build files, with to baho) can be >HERE<.
This one is made from the the .bin file, which is downloaded and executed during installation of the package.

atolboo you did it. After all this time and all my meager attempts. Thank you. Your method of installing Google Earth worked for me on my first try. Thanks dedebekri and John A for your help. Now I can use Pardus 2011 because it is my favorite. I no longer need to use something else just to get a program I want. I guess all I needed was to ask for help but I attempt to read the Docs and check the forums before and I did all that. I installed the 32 bit. Thanks again everyone.
