Ubuntu 11.10 Gnome-shell 64bit After installation Google Earth doesn't start
My system is Ubuntu 11.10 and I was using Google earth without any problems until this morning. Last night I was using Google earth and this morning it would not start. I looked all over for a solution and came across this thread: Installed Google Earth won't launch Then I tried to start it from the terminal as suggested and this is the output. As you can see, it shows that Google earth was already running and asks you to delete the file instance-running-lock. I deleted it and voila, it now runs again.
I hope this helps some of the people out there that are having similar problems.
