Google Earth for Linux

02/22/2009 8:11 PM

I am a newbie user of linux ubuntu and I have downloaded the google earth bin file. When I click on it to try to install it, it just tells me I have an error and have to tell it which application to use to open it. How do I proceed?

Check with Google to find out if Google Earth supports Linux Ubuntu first.

Right click on the bin file. Left click the properties menu, select permissions then check the box "is executable". Works for me in Suse 11.1.
