Good-bye, friends.

I've left Arch a long time ago, and now I'm leaving these too.

To you.

Hello again.

It seems that the problem was solved and I was able to install the program but I have a new error: When I run de program, I get a window with an "unknown graphics card" message and then the program finish, however I can start Google-Earth-Pro without graphics errors but this version does not work ok for me.

I think it may be related to the script that is executed at the beginning of the program but I not sure.

Could someone help me please?

Hello friends.

Here is a error in install, the source:

You don't really need to create a package. Just extract/run the .bin (wherever you found it from), and run the binary or the launcher.

hmm, how annoying. My skills are not really up to diagnosing this further.
Thanks for all of the help.
I did try to get GE 5 to work, but couldn't figure out an appropriate PKGBUILD. Haven't really done it before and am a little busy to do it right now.

Is that even worth pursuing do you think?

And the same behaviour using GE7 too.
(I' have 2GB RAM).

Yeah, like eerie said, seems since June something broke.

berilac commented on 2016-09-10 15:50

Cool, thought so; thanks for clarity.

Ok that makes sense. I tried all of that to no effect :(
Also, the lag is not really with the navigation and earth itself, but the entire UI; menus, placing cursor in search box, unchecking layers; all of it...

Seems I'm not the only one, and as far as I can tell, maybe it's to do with graphics card being crappy internal intel...but then old GE used to work fine a year or two back...

Uhh. Yeah, there's no _Microsoft_ DirectX for Linux without Wine. The runtimes are closed source.

I'm not talking about the "Graphics Mode" box. I mean the quality settings, "Texture Colors", "Anisotropic Filtering", "Terrain", etc.
