I have installed the latest .deb Google Earth from Google, but the Google window is black (where the earth should be) Plus all 3D options are greyed out.
I have checked my graphics card, and 3D is enabled.
As shown here:
pst007x@pst007x-ubuntu64:~$ /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Ironlake Mobile OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.11 Not software rendered: yes Not blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes GL vertex program: yes GL fragment program: yes GL vertex buffer object: yes GL framebuffer object: yes GL version is 1.4+: yes Unity 3D supported: yes pst007x@pst007x-ubuntu64:~$
I have never been able to get Google earth to work on Radeon, Nvidia and Intel cards.
I have followed installation instructions, but no luck.
What is odd that in the options menu, the 3D settings page is all greyed out, I am unable to select any option.
I have looked at other threads and no answers.
I have set my DNS to manual, ipv6 is off....
I am at a loss on this one...
I now get the error: We are unable to connect to the Google Earth servers
However I do not use a Proxy. I tried opening all ports in my routers firewall.
Still only a black window.
Now using Ubuntu 11.10 64bit..
