hello all, I've been having issues with Google Earth as of late.  It used to work just fine;  don't know when it quit working properly.  It will on occasion still work, but most of the time it just closes as soon as it opens.  This is happening on my laptop, here are specs:

 

i5 2430m/ 4gb ram/ Mint 17 xcfe/ kernel3.13.0-24-generic  I don't know how to get graphics info???

 

Thanks,

Scott

I think version 7.1.2.2041-r0 is installed (according to my knowledge of using the Synaptic Package Manager)  Should I remove and reinstall??

Try this first. I'm just guessing here, I think you have missing lib's( Files).

sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libxext6:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libsm6:i386

PS

 

Sorry for the late reply, Due to job life is hectic atm.

Does the current Google Earth need to be uninstalled before the Terminal line above is ran? 

 

Not that I use the app that often, but have noticed that it crashes right after opening. I tried it both ways, the 64 bit .deb installer & as suggested, by the Package Manager of Linux Mint. Neither makes a bit of difference. It worked fine on Linux Mint 13, it was when moving to Mint 16 I first noticed the issue, and haven't had any luck with 17, but on the other hand, I haven't beat the door down trying either, having bigger fish to fry. 

 

Would be great to have Google Earth on Linux Mint 17/Ubuntu 14.04 & their derivatives. Just may need directions to go somewhere, and not all has a non-Linux install to fall back on. For now, I do, but the future could change that.
