Apos instalar o GoogleEarth, se não aparecer o globo.
Here's how I made google-earth work as user and not root:
First run the uninstaller in the directory you installed to (mine was /opt/google-earth)
then rm -rf the empty directory
cd .config from your home directory then do a rm -f Google/
finally, rm -rf .googleearth/
rerun the installer as root, and install to the default locations,
after it is done installing DO NOT click start, click QUIT and then
start google earth as your user, it worked for me. I guess the initial
run is a setup of the files, so if you run it as root, it sets
permissions for root only!
