"Google Earth allows you to travel the world through a virtual globe and view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, and much more. With Google Earth's rich, geographical content, you are able to experience a more realistic view of the world. You can fly to your favorite place, search for businesses and even navigate through directions."

Installation

Troubleshooting

Google Earth crashes at startup

Make sure you have installed one of the required optional dependencies for 3D acceleration.

You may also try disabling Startup-Tips with enableTips=false in ~/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf:

$ sed -i "s|enableTips=.*|enableTips=false|" ~/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf

To prevent a crash with -dri drivers you may need to add a new line to ~/.drirc with:

$ echo >> ~/.drirc
