 Good luck,

Very interesting.

Calling googleearth from a terminal gets "Command not found".

  Searching for google* finds ~/bin/googleearth

lrwxrwxrwx 1 stan users 35 Jul 30 15:21 googleearth ->

but there is no such subdirectory in the home directory. I wonder
that there was a bouncing icon at all.

I should uninstall the rpm and try again, but I suppose if this
happened once it will probably happen again.

Try it. I downloaded the package from first and it
failed. a month or two after, i downloaded it again, and this time,
it´s running fine...

so, good luck to you :D

Ah! A fresh download. Thanks.

Strange. No problem here. Google Earth, rpm (i386) dated by
It installed itself in /opt/google/earth/free and created link
/usr/bin/google-earth, pointing to /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth.
