Google Earth 5.0 (beta) on Ubuntu 8.10

Posted — Mar 5, 2009

Today I tried to install the (new) version of Google Earth 5.0 (beta), cause some one told me about new Streetview pics in town..

After I installed the app, I just tried to run,.. Saw the splash and then everything closes..

What happened..

I started the program in a shell and there is the problem:

Installing desktop icon...
Warning: Unable to create prefs directory '/home/pbaasch/.googleearth'. File exists.
./googleearth-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/i686/cmov/ symbol BIO_test_flags, version OPENSSL_0.9.8 not defined in file with link time reference

The solution is very simple, just a workaround, but it works:

Find the file and just rename or delete it…
