Please DO NOT flag out-of-date, unless there's a new version for Linux also:

$ curl -s https://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_x86_64.rpm | head -c96 | strings | cut -d "-" -f4

I got right on that. Evidence: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/google-earth-pro-wine/

Anyone interested in packaging Google Earth Pro, which is now free ?

@manuelschneid3r, 7.1.5 is for Windows only.

Get it to work with Panoramio pictures working and without crashing.
On x86_64 (with nvidia-beta drivers - 364.12)

Pre-install Freeimage (aur)
Pre-install Libpng15 (aur) **built it manually with: makepkg -si --skippgpcheck
(make sure all other dependencies are installed also)

Install Google-Earth with yaourt. (Read the PKGBUILD)
**Modify PKGBUILD (and enable panoramio fix=1 and 64bit=1)
(save it and continue the install)

After succesful install (and before first tome run of google-earth)
make sure to apply: sudo rm -r ~/.googleearth/Cache/

Run Google-Earth and voila, everything works, no lagging, and no crashes :)

...or use the wine-google-earth-pro version if your lazy from the AUR.

Read the PKGBUILD.

Could you make a package for 64 bit version? I mean https://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb instead https://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb.
Thank you.

@eazar001, like just stated, it isn't for Linux.

@lmouillart, 7.1.5 isn't for Linux.

What's "fully patched arch with kernel 4.0.4-2"? Latest one is 4.1.4-1: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/linux/

The Qt/Architecture tweaks can be enabled on top of the PKGBUILD. The "Texture Compression" trick is also on the Wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Google_Earth

I see the same error as rigon when I recompiled per hutou's suggestions (64b etc).

I think I saw the same error with i386, but I didn't keep notes.

According to Alchemist251 at this thread:

https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/earth/U8SlQy2nJLM

the problem is buggy qt libraries bundled with GE7. Alchemist251 points to this thread:

https://productforums.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!category-topic/earth/linux/_h4t6SpY_II%5B1-25-false%5D

I haven't followed up on it yet, so this may or may not be a solution, but a) the alleged problem is specific and not black magic; and b) I've tried several (recent) suggestions posted here as well as suggestions posted in the first link above ("sudo", deleting ~/.googleearth), but GE7 continues to crash.

Including the first link above for the OP statement that GE7 runs fine if he shuts down the network before invoking GE7.

Running fully patched arch with kernel 4.0.4-2, FX-4100, Nvidia GeForce GTX 750, nvidia proprietary drivers, 16G mainstore.

I doubt that it's relevant, but I have a 4K display (which requires special configuration, so who knows?)
