    Question Google Earth stop working on ubuntu 12.04

    I installed Google Earth 7 on a Ubuntu 12.04
    Everything worked great

    Before four or five days
    Google Earth has stopped working correctly

    The only way to run Google Earth is after restarting the computer

    If I close the Google Earth and a few minutes and later i want to run the software again
    The software does not work , Google Earth is not launch
    you See a few seconds the screen opening Google Earth with Google logo
    And that is closed

    my system is 32 bit

    Try starting it from a terminal:
    Code:
    google-earth
    (I think. It works on my machine)
    It may give you a useful error message.

    Re: Google Earth stop working on ubuntu 12.04

    What solved my problems with using Google Earth in Linux was installing, from the Linux Mint Software Center, the utility named "googleearth-package". Its purpose is stated as: "Utility to automatically build a debian package of google earth." Installing it resulted in Google Earth being listed in the LM Menu, under "Internet".

    I assume that this package is also available from the Ubuntu Software Manager.

    You can launch application with:

    gksudo -k -u root /opt/google/earth/free/google-earth %f

    or

    1. Edit sudoers file:

    gksudo gedit /etc/sudoers

    -add this line:

    yourusername ALL= NOPASSWD: /path/to/the/command

    remplace
    /path/to/the/command
    with
    /opt/google/earth/free/google-earth



    2. Run your app in launcher or terminal with:

    sudo google-earth
