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.

berilac commented on 2016-09-10 17:49

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?

Indeed, I have quite the same situation as berilac:

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

Det commented on 2016-09-10 17:15

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...

Det commented on 2016-09-10 05:47

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.

berilac commented on 2016-09-10 05:12

@Det: Thank you for taking the time to find those alternate package locations. Unfortunately they resulted in exactly the same error.

I tried GE7 again. Patiently waited through the lag to go to Tools>Options and tweak the 3d settings (at least).
I notice that I don't have a choice of OpenGL and DX which I guess makes sense. There is only a 'Use safe mode' checkbox. Does that sound right for linux version?

Cheers again for the help

Det commented on 2016-09-09 13:50

Did you try http://packages.linuxmint.com/pool/import/g/googleearth/googleearth_6.1.0.4857-r0_i386.deb or http://download2.polytechnic.edu.na/pub4/sourceforge/c/co/cobberlinux/cobber/pool/community/main/g/google-earth-stable/google-earth-stable_6.0.3.2197-r0_i386.deb?

Or limiting the RAM use/lowering the graphics of GE7?

berilac commented on 2016-09-09 13:44

Quite possibly; however, I have 3gigs ram (I know, not best balance).

It's enough for google-earth 7 to run...though that has a whole other problem I also couldn't fix; it ran really, super slow, giving off this error repeatedly:
ERROR:nss_ocsp.cc(581)] No URLRequestContext for OCSP handler

I also tried whatever fixes I could find for this but none seemed to help either :(
Thanks for getting in touch, Det; much appreciated.

Det commented on 2016-09-09 10:55

I think it's the i686 thing? Says right there you're "out of memory", but Googling didn't confirm for me either.

berilac commented on 2016-09-09 03:35

Seem having a similar/same problem to eerie.
Have tried for hours and hours just about all solutions I can find online, with not luck.
I have a feeling it is something to do with my intel drivers; but I am far from certain.

luuuciano commented on 2016-07-22 23:40

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!

Since the last system update, it keeps crashing.

Allan's script at:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1505801#p1505801

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
file

/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-fonts-persian.conf

to prevent google-earth6 from crashing on startup.

Lazy commented on 2014-07-26 20:32

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

Zucca commented on 2014-07-26 08:47

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

Lazy commented on 2014-07-25 21:16

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.

Det commented on 2014-07-24 08:36

Turns out it did need to be removed.

Zucca commented on 2014-07-23 22:30

Yes. x86_64.

Det commented on 2014-07-23 22:18

Why would you wanna break poor Google Earth? It won't receive any updates so it's unable to stand up for itself and essentially completely defenceless.

I'll be revisiting the search issue. You're on x86_64 too, right?

Zucca commented on 2014-07-23 20:59

@Det : I do need to add the rm line to PKGBUILD or otherwise I cannot perform any searches...

I wonder how many other libraries I could remove without breaking it...

Zucca commented on 2014-07-21 21:09

Hm. At least mine started working by applying that... I'll recheck that tomorrow.

Zucca commented on 2014-07-21 21:07

Hm. At least mine started working by applying that... I'll tee check that tomorrow.

Det commented on 2014-07-21 20:50

Didn't need it.

Zucca commented on 2014-07-20 19:32

I think rm -f "${pkgdir}/${_instdir}"/opt/google/earth/legacy/libcurl.so.4
should be in somewhere in PKGBUILD. Or did I missed something?

Det commented on 2014-02-24 05:16

Removed "PKGEXT='.pkg.tar'" due to a request of having your own way through makepkg.conf.

Det commented on 2013-10-07 17:14

Install curl.

luismy commented on 2013-10-07 16:57

Hi Thah.

I have the same problem with the i686 version but "multilib/lib32-curl" is only for x86_64

How can I fix it?

Det commented on 2013-08-09 16:51

Absolutely.

Thah commented on 2013-08-08 07:47

Fix for "invalid HTTP request" on x86_64

As google-earth v7.x is ATM a buggy mess I installed google-earth6 on x86_64 and ran into the above bug.

As suggested in http://askubuntu.com/questions/314509/how-to-correct-google-earths-invalid-http-request-notice I moved /opt/google/earth/legacy/libcurl.so.4 out of the way and installed multilib/lib32-curl. That solved the problem.

Could this move/dependency be added to the PKGBUILD for x86_64?

Google-earth 7 works fine. But I don't like it. New pop-up windows bug me...
This version fails after "start-up window".
It might be something font related?

Det commented on 2013-05-08 11:11

No for two reasons. First of because: no, and secondly because that's the default anyway.

@olive, FUUCK! Should work now.

@canurabus, did you try things like the first Google result?: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=151044

canurabus commented on 2013-01-27 22:40

Tried to run this... I get:
libGL: screen 0 does not appear to be DRI2 capable
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/dri/tls/swrast_dri.so
libGL: OpenDriver: trying /usr/lib32/xorg/modules/dri/swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

Google Earth opens up, but the viewport is a black screen and the fonts are all messed up. I have proprietary nvidia drivers on the sys and other OpenGL apps work fine.

olive commented on 2013-01-27 22:34

But it does not point to the symlink. It points to:

/opt/google/earth/free/google-earth

which doesn't exist in the package; making the .desktop file non functional.

Det commented on 2013-01-25 20:33

Well, it's supposed to point to the symlink anyway. Doesn't really make a difference.

olive commented on 2013-01-25 19:39

There is a small error in /usr/share/applications/google-earth6.desktop . The Exec= line does not point to the actual binary.

Great to have this version, the newer don't work for me.

mrechte commented on 2013-01-24 07:03

Thanks. Works straight out of the (aur) box !
