Hello,

From root

$ su -

# ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

OR if you have sudo setup

$ sudo ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

Re: How to install a .bin file?

Hi, thanks for your help.

I have tried the the first method, but the terminal tell me 'Permission denied.'

The permission setup of this file is '-rw-rw-r--,' should I change it to be executable?

Thanks.

Re: How to install a .bin file?

Should I execute it in /root?

Because the file is in my home 'Downloads' directory, so I went to there and execute this file
and the terminal showed the following messages:

Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 5.1.3535.3218..................................... .........................
./setup.sh: setup.data/bin/Linux/amd64/setup.gtk2: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory


Is there any problem about the above messages?What happened?
I cannot find this software in the menu of the GUI menu. What should I do next?

Thanks.

A lot can be found by searching error output.

Re: How to install a .bin file?

So far so many problems about the 64 bit version of fedora. Does it means that the
32 bit version fedora is better supported than the 64 bit version?

And, does it means that I should have chose i386 instead of x86_64?

Will the supports for x86_64 be better one day and substitute for i386?

Re: How to install a .bin file?

Frankly, no idea.

The two problems appear unrelated by my guess. According to the first thread I linked you to, the 64-bit .bin isntaller of Google Earth is looking for 32-bit glibc, which seems odd (I'd expect it to look for 64-bit glibc if it is, indeed, 64-bit native).

The error regarding nss-softokn-freebl appears to be a Fedora-related problem with packaging in the repositories.
Code:
package nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc13.x86_64 (which is newer than nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-17.fc13.i686) is already installed
That shouldn't be happening. Discussion in the second thread here on FFO mentions grabbing packages from koji which makes me guess a fix for that error will be pushed into the repos sometime soon. I'd say give it a few days perhaps - F13 is very fresh and they're still undoubtedly working out some kinks.

Maybe you'd be better off asking in google support channels.

Have you got a link for the 64 bit installer as I thought GE was 32 bit only .

Re: How to install a .bin file?

Oh. Nevermind. Silly me... for some reason I was under the impression the OP was attempting to install a 64-bit .bin. Don't ask me where I got that impression from.

I'd expect the nss-softokn-freebl issue to clear up sometime soon.

Re: How to install a .bin file?

There is the similar problem when I tried to install Adobe Flash Player for FireFox using 32 bit method.
The installation problem was finally solved by using the alpha 64 bit plugin file.

One question: If I can install i386 version fedora instead of x86_64 version, why should I choose the latter?
What are the advantages of the x86_64 version?

Re: How to install a .bin file?

starares: it's only one problem, and we're working on a fix for it. It's just a packaging error.

The advantage of running the x86-64 edition is improved performance, basically.
