I will not update (for now) to the latest version 7.3.6.9326 because it crashes continuously for me.

Thanks, unfortunate timing then.

For reference, with Gnome shell / wayland I need to

unset QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME
unset QT_QPA_PLATFORM

to avoid

Google Earth has caught signal 6.

Hey instead of asking users to make the change for their thing to work with wayland, why not just force x11?

Can you add google-earth-pro-libproxy-patch as optional dependency (optdepends=("google-earth-pro-libproxy-patch: Add a 'libproxy' version that is known to work with Google Earth."))?

Regards!

@jaro3 thanks for the idea regarding fixing proxy, I managed to get it to work.

I also made a package for this (google-earth-pro-libproxy-patch) so others can take advantage. Check the pinned comment for more details.

I got an issue. After closing google earth, the process of it did not terminate.

stronnag: Not last, previous to last. I was trying aurpublish and it replaced SKIP entries with hashes for the html files. I fixed it almost immediately.

@iyanmv Thank you. Don't know why Google is so permissive, but I would also add chmod -R 'g-w' ${pkgdir} to the PKGBUILD. Just tested and it works fine.
