Hi,

The Google Earth text size is impractically small in my sys. Does anyone know how I can enlarge it?

Thanks

Change the text size in the google config file in the render section and save.

sudo gedit /home/ubuntu/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf

Thanks for your interest;

sudo gedit /home/ubuntu/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf

Has opened a blank file but I don't know what to do next?

Just to clarify, use your login name (ie: the name of your home folder). Also, don't use sudo with graphical apps, use gksu instead. However, since we're in the home folder we don't need it at all:

gedit /home/username/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf
