The step that might be missing is the Download
Which instructions are you following now ..... as I can see a couple of downloads for this file6 cd /opt/google/earth/free
7 sudo tar xvf ~/Downloads/ge22.214.171.1240-0.x86_64-new-qt-libs-debian7-ubuntu12.tar.xz
but am not sure if that is what you are now using .......
The solution is said to work on 12.10 and 13.04 if it is from here
But you said you upgraded to 14.04 ..... so not sure which route you have now taken to solve this.
The one that was posted earlier I tried too http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...2#post12892342
But it did not have the dependency to remove out of the package on my system which is 14.04
Where it says this
Searched for google-earth-stable and when I found it - the line for ia32-libs was not there ...... so that means no change couldcd /var/lib/dpkg
sudo cp status status.backup
sudo gedit status___________________________________________ changed for gedit from nano as its easier
You don't need to use nano if you prefer a different editor; whatever you use needs root privilege to edit the status file. Search for google-earth-stable, remove ia32-libs from the Depends line, save and exit the file. Run
take place for that part of it.
If I find something that does work I will post back again though ........ the situation seems to be that some parts work
as I am getting the thumbnails showing in certain situations ..........
