    Google Earth text not right

    Running 8.10. Google Earth starts and works O. K. but place names, dates, altitudes, etc., anything with text appearing on the map is not working right. Letters are missing, so that instead of "East Oak Lane", for example, all I see is "st ak Lane" and so forth.

    Any ideas? I renamed libcrypto.so.0.9.8 to libcrypto.so.0.9.8bug so that version 5 would start correctly. Everything else works, just the text won't cooperate.

    Same problem with the text here too. Running GE 5.0 on 8.10 on a Dell 1520 with the Intel embedded graphics with Compiz disabled.

    Re: Google Earth text not right

    Consensus seems to be that it is the intel vid driver causing the problem. More info at;
    http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=64944
    and
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/in...el/+bug/295934

    Problem is possibly solved with the newer Intel 2.6.1 driver that ships with 9.04.

    Re: Google Earth text not right

    Hey, Wondering if anyone with this problem has updated to jaunty and if it fixes the problem?
    I want to hold off on a Jaunty update for a mont after release to let some of the bugs get ironed out but this is one of the things pushing to do it sooner.

    fonts are all fixed in Jaunty. GE still doesn't play well with any compiz effects though.

    Thanks Ubuntubrian. So what problems with GE & Compiz are cropping up in Jaunty, if you don't mind me asking?
