Unlike the Google Earth installer this pet will not break your Puppy.

Depends on Open GL

The .sfs should work with other puppies, just rename it.

I installed it, got nothin' when I clicked on the entry in Fun, even after restarting X. How would I start it from a console?

Code:
/usr/lib/google-earth/googleearth-bin


would do it.

It has been reported that this version of Google-earth has some "features" which make puppy a bit sick: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=360780&search_id=123480397#360780

You have been warned Razz

Those problems are caused by the installation scripts. I removed them so it should work just fine. When I was testing it the splash screen came up and then crashed because OpenGL doesn't work on my computer.

I updated the pet so it should work from the menu now.

Just an tiny question : Is there a google-earth archive out there , that does not rely on Xorg-High/Mesa/OpenGL ?

Seems that I had to change my whatever google-earth version wrapper script to

Code:
cd $script_path;

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$script_path:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

./googleearth-bin "$@"


to make it find it's included Qt4 libraries ( of course before had Qt4 compiled -- took hours :LOL: ) .

Now I had disabled OpenGL/GLX/DRI for Xorg server 1.3.0 since I had two apps crashing if the default Puppy-4 mesa pkg was installed and loaded by Xorg .
