    ubuntu 12.04 google earth does not start.

    hello! I am using ubuntu 12.04, on a samsung RC530-S02. i have an nvidia optimus video card, so i have installed the bumblebee driver (I don't know if the problem is also related to this).
    i have installed google earth downloading the debian package from google.com and installed it. every thing worked during the installation, but when i try to start the program, nothing happens.

    if i launch it from the terminal, I get chis error:

    ./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    i would like to have a working google earth on my computer so... how can i solve it?

    thanks

    I have given the command you told me, but after that google-earth was no more installed. so I've installed it again, and i also found it in ubuntu software center.. but it is still not working, and i get the same error as before.
    was it a bad idea reinstalling it?

    Do you still get the same error message?

    Install
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lib32nss-mdns 
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk
    Also found this possibility to start google-earth
    Code:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32/nvidia-current/ google-earth
