Same here!
After this I have tried again installing google-earth (7, not pro) and using the "panoramio fix"... and it works!
That panoramio issue was to only thing because I was not using ge7 (and maybe it is bit more resource heavy)...
I need to see pictures when exploring and searching places! :-D

Thanks a lot for the packaging and taking care Det!

Allan's script at:

indicated Google-Earth will be impacted by GCC5 upgrade. I can't use GE7. Will GE6 require modification and will you do it?

Just a warning: I had to delete the fontconfig configuration


to prevent google-earth6 from crashing on startup.

Didn't work. I renamed the ~/.googleearth to something else and it finally worked.

@Lazy : Clear all the google-earth caches. That did solved the problem for me a while ago.

I get signal 11 on x86_64 even though on a completely fresh install of Arch Linux, it worked just fine. Wonder if I have a wayward dependency, and the font thing shouldn't even be a problem now.

Turns out it did need to be removed.
