Hello everyone! Good to see you again. Today I'd like to write a tutorial on how to install Google Earth on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot. Google Earth is one of Google products acts as a virtual globe, map and geographical information program that lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. It's a great application and fortunately you can run it natively on Ubuntu including the latest Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot.

First thing first, you must download the Google Earth installer from its official website, click here to download. Select your suitable architecture (32 bit or 64 bit) and hit "Agree and Download".

Once downloaded, install Google Earth by double-clicking its installer or typing the following command:
  • sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb
  • sudo apt-get -f install
Once installed, Google Earth is in the Internet section of Unity Dash.

Enjoy :)
