    Tried them but just got some error messages about non existence of path. Tried re installing GE with the latest 64 bit version but still the same results.

    I'd be glad to help but I'll need a lot more information, starting with all the terminal output from the commands you ran. Please use code tags to make it easier to read.

    When I copy the update links section I get this:

    george@george-W240HU-W250HUQ:/opt/go...th/free.newlibs$ ln -s /opt/google/earth/free.newlibs/googleearth /usr/bin/google-earth
    ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/bin/google-earth': Permission denied
    george@george-W240HU-W250HUQ:/opt/go...th/free.newlibs$

    I have absolutely no idea what it means I'm afraid

    Ok, that's my mistake, I left out "sudo" so it should be
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /opt/google/earth/free.newlibs/googleearth /usr/bin/google-earth

    ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/bin/google-earth': File exists
    george@george-W240HU-W250HUQ:~$

    Follow my post #28, it is simpler and don't need to change symlink.

    Did you already run
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/bin/google-earth /usr/bin/google-earth.old
    ?

    Ann - I tried this but makes no difference

    monkeybrain - can't run the second bit of code as I get this message:

    tar: /home/george/Downloads/ge7.1.1.1580-0.x86_64-new-qt-libs-debian7-ubuntu12.tar.xz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
