    Google Earth Fonts VERY Ugly

    I'm having a problem with a new installation of Google Earth on Ubuntu 11.04. The fonts look VERY ugly. Is there something I'm supposed to do or install? I already have ttf-mscorefonts installed or whatever it was.

    Uninstall it and reinstall it from the Google Earth PPA repository like this:

    You needed to use a walkthrough when you installed your version of Ubuntu.

    You forgot to install:

    sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

    Try using a walkthrough or guide to make sure you have everything installed on your system you are going to need probably.

    Here is one for the older version 10.10:

    This did not work for me either. I recieved an error about libraries when attempting to load.

    I will use windows in my dualboot to use GE instead.
