Installing Google Earth is relatively straight forward. Download the Ubuntu/Debian package from Google, then click on the package to install it. Unfortunately when you attempt to run the program you may be hit with the following error.
/usr/bin/google-earth: 43: ./googleearth-bin: not found
This occurs because Google Earth has a dependency on /lib/ld-lsb.so.3, and unless this library is installed it won’t run. To correct this problem you will need to install the lsb-core package.
$ sudo apt-get install lsb-core
