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."


Google Earth can be installed through google-earthAUR or google-earth6AUR from the AUR.


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
