A quick google search shows this link: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2012/10/install-google-earth-in-ubuntu-12-10-quantal-quetzal/ which describes how to install Google Earth on Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit addition. Not quite sure if it is reliable or not, but was the first search.

Install the 32-bit version instead. That gave me the true long-term solution to the problem. Download here.
