From the project web page:
"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."
The latest version is calledAUR and the previous one (intended for certain Intel users) AUR.
Tips & Tricks
Excessive memory usage
The application memory usage can be controlled either by limiting the maximum cache size in
Cache or by lowering the graphics settings in
Google Earth crashes at startup
1) Startup tips are enabled
The startup tips can be very useful but are also known to cause crashes with Google Earth on some Intel cards. To disable them use
$ sed -i "s|enableTips=.*|enableTips=false|" ~/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf
2) No new line at the end of ~/.drirc
To prevent a crash with -dri drivers you may need to add a new line to
$ echo >> ~/.drirc
Earth shows nothing but yellow borders
Taken from the changelog of 7.0.3 this issue was improved to some extent but in general it's still there:
Imagery now displays for Linux users running specific families of Intel GPUs.
The solution is to just use the legacy version calledAUR.
