Any particular reason.
I can't recall that on any Google Earth installation I had to be a
root. It will be installed in home directory where user has
sufficient rights.

Regards, Rajko

You do not have to install Google Earth as root. I prefer to install

True. You (the user running the installer) only need to be able to write
to write to the directory in which you're installting.

I found an RPM for Google Desktop, so maybe Google will eventually go
that route for all their Linux software.
