Google Earth don`t work after I package it with googleearth-package and fakeroot.
It will be great if somebody package it for me.

64-bit Nvidia driver users might need to install nvidia-glx-ia32.

I tried the deb package now available on Google's site. Seems to work. Any advantage to building the package since Google now provides one?

Also, I found lsb-core pulled in exim4 as well as 'at' daemons, which I didn't need. I installed a dummy package to avoid this.

      Code:

# NOTE: To prevent exim4 MTA being installed as a dependency for lsb-core
# I created a dummy package (exim4 is not really needed):
apt-get install equivs
nano exim4.ctl  # create, add contents:
   Section: web
   Package: exim4-dummy
   Provides: exim4, exim4-base, exim4-config, exim4-daemon-light, mailutils
   Description: EXIM4 dummy package
    This package provides dpkg with the information that
    there is a local mail server installed.
equivs-build exim4.ctl
dpkg -i exim4-dummy_1.0_all.deb

# NOTE: To prevent at being installed as a dependency for lsb-core
# I created a dummy package:
apt-get install equivs
nano at.ctl  # create, add contents:
   Section: web
   Package: at-dummy
   Provides: at
   Description: at dummy package
    This package provides dpkg with the information that
    this package is installed.
equivs-build at.ctl
dpkg -i at-dummy_1.0_all.deb

# Download google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb (from earth.google.com)
dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb
apt-get intall ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk lsb-core
# someone said lib32nss-mdns was needed but it doesn't appear to be
# with above, works but no image - add nvidia 32bit libs (thanks dibl)
apt-get install nvidia-glx-ia32

# IMPORTANT: google deb also installs:
   /etc/cron.daily/google-earth
   /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth.list
   plus some mime stuff in /usr/share/applications
# so I remove it:
rm /etc/cron.daily/google-earth
rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth.list
nano /usr/share/applications/mimeinfo.cache   # remove google entries
nano /usr/share/applications/defaults.list   # remove google entries
   application/keyhole=google-earth.desktop
   application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml=google-earth.desktop
   application/vnd.google-earth.kmz=google-earth.desktop
   application/earthviewer=google-earth.desktop
# NOTE: Since its closed-source, consider running google-earth in a sandbox
#       such as sandfox.

@dibl: I was getting a black viewing pane (the one with the earth in it). I tried your suggestion of installing nvidia-glx-ia32 as I am using a 64 bit system. It worked like a charm! Many thanks. I never would have found that trick on my own.

Thanks very much for posting your trick, IgnorantGuru. Smile I didn't know of the existence of equivs-build and have used it for this and a number of other necessary apps which insisted on installing some unneeded and/or superseded dependencies.
