Installing Google Earth on Ubuntu

Install the latest version of Google Earth for linux direct from Google sources.

Open a terminal window to perform the installation (Ctrl-Alt-T) then enter the following at the prompt:

wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb

You will see a progress bar as the download completes. This is a perfect time for a cup of tea.

For 64bit architecture use:

wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

And change the filename in the subsequent commands.

Next install the downloaded .deb package:

sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb

If you get errors with this command due to missing dependencies you can 'force' install of Google Earth and missing dependencies with sudo apt-get install -f

You should now have a fully functional Google Earth!
