Just installed GE from the deb package on my laptop running 12.04 (32-bit) Gnome, and all would be well if I could see the ground !
The first image after the splash screen of the globe just shows the country outlines in yellow against a starry sky.
Looks really weird.
Then any location does the same - all the database stuff appears, but over a starry sky.
The ground has become transparent, like I've developed x-ray eyes.
Before I re-install, has anyone else had this happen, and is there a solution other than re-installing.
I can't find any likely choice in Views or Tools "unticked", so any ideas ?
Same result if I launch from applications, or from a Terminal.
