    I'm running out of ideas. Open Synaptic and try Fix Broken Packages under the Edit menu, if you haven't already done that.

    yup did that too. affter all this though I am still wondering why there is not a la32-libs-multiarch amd64 package? everytime i try and get it I get the " not availible in your sources list and it is unattainable through any of the multiarch pages . it's like it was just pulled off the internet. and for some reason the 12.04 files will not work in 12.10. there has to be a fix somewhere but i cant find it!.

    well after reading just about everything i can on this I am begining to think it'is a lost cause.
    I have dug around in synaptic and found this.
    Screenshot from 2013-01-04 20:43:04.jpg
    there seems to be no way to fix the package and it is the latest one . Also i found this in the changelogs.

    Screenshot from 2013-01-04 20:46:32.jpg by reading the change log it appears that the la32-libs-multiarch files are removed on pupose?.

    Re: can't install google earth in 12.10

    Did you go directly to the Google website to download the install from them, or from the Ubuntu repositories?
    I had problems when I first went to install GE from the repos. Then went and downloaded GE directly from Google and went ok.
