    We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
    This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal
    circumstances. A bug report and debugging data are now being written
    to this text file:

    /home/tyler/.googleearth/crashlogs/crashlog-0B7A2AE4.txt

    This bug report will be sent to Google automatically next time you run
    Google Earth. Its data, which contains no personal information, will help
    us correct problems without bothering you further. If you would rather
    this info not be transmitted, please delete the above file before running
    the program again. If you want bug reports to NEVER be sent, remove the
    above 'crashlogs' directory's read/write permissions.


    It does the same thing everytime. O and here are my specs.

    Don't panic, your question has been spotted.

    I initially had trouble with Google Earth crashing when I had it on Feisty (7.04) on my laptop and found that I had to enable 3d graphics acceleration on the "restricted drivers"

    Hope this helps.

    to run google earth you need a 3d video/graphics card, do you have it?
    run this command on a terminal «lspci» and post the results here.
