This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Err... I don't see where it fails? It's already installed correctly. –  Braiam Oct 28 '13 at 22:58
    
Try running google-earth, or ls /bin | grep google to see if there are any commands available to execute via command line. It does look like it has installed correctly, it is just telling you 'printer-driver-hpijs' is not longer required, perhaps due to installing a replacement with google-earth. It should be fine (I think). –  Wilf Oct 28 '13 at 23:03

Depends: lsb-core (>= 3.2), ia32-libs

Now Click Save, & Exit Control File

Now Delete The Original Google Earth .DEB Package You Downloaded

Create A Folder called getfix, Now Move The Extracted Google Earth Folder Into The getfix Folder

Now You Are Going To Rebuild The Google Earth .DEB Package

Open Terminal, Copy & Paste Following Command & Press Enter

dpkg -b /home/username/Downloads/getfix/google-earth-stable_current_amd64
