... because I keep failing. I know in the official documentation it is not yet available for 10.10... is this correct because I keep coming across guides on how to do it, like this one:

Unfortunately after downloading the file it didn't work for me.

enable canonical partner repo into synaptic, and update, then it can be installed

Yes, I've installed it from the *bin file (v5.2.1.1588)
downloaded from http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html

I tried the site and installed google earth on kubuntu 10.10 without problems look in your home folder for the deb file it created and double click it enjoy.

A question for dino99. You suggest
"enable canonical partner repo into synaptic, and update, then it can be installed"

How do I do that? I opened synaptic, and under the settings tab I clicked on repositories, but it's not clear to me which choice is appropriate for canonical partner repo.

When I go to the directory with GoogleEarthLinux.bin and try to run it with the "sh" command I get this error message:

"setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty"
and
"setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found"
and
"Couldn't load 'setup.data/setup.xml'"

Thanks desnaike; I used the link you quoted and the installation worked without any problem on Maverick 64-bit. I think it's the "--force" parameter that is required. On previous atempts I also had the "file empty" message.
