both I installed Google Earth 6.1 several months ago. I've just install GE 6.2 this evening by downloading the .deb package on the Google site. After the download, GE installed fine with the Software Center. I found GE 6.2 with the Unity lens and drag + drop on the Unity launcher. GE opens and seems to work fine.
But the issue is that I still have 6.1 on my computer, I thought it had been upgraded automatically to 6.2. I can find 6.1 on the software center as it says it is installed, but I can't find any 6.2. I open synaptic and can find 6.1 but not 6.2.
So my questions are: How do I uninstall 6.1 without breaking 6.2? Why is there no trace of 6.2 on my machine? Where is 6.2 installed on my hard drive, as 6.1 is on my
First thanks to everyone for taking time to answer.
Synaptic is already in my computer and I can now understand as I see the 2 packages related to Google Earth.
GE 6.2 is in a package called google-earth-stable and the older version is in a package called googleearth (see attached picture). What I still don't understand is that in Unity's Dash Menu I can see google-earth-stable and googleearth but in the Install Software tab of the Software Center, I can't see any trace of google-earth-stable installation or googleearth? Perhaps this is because there are not Software but packages?
Can I safely unistall googleearth without braking google-earth-stable via the Software Center?
Also I saw that in the snapshot that googleearth (older, v. 6.1) has a version of 126.96.36.1997+0.6.0-1 and the google-earth-stable (newer, v. 6.2) has a version of 188.8.131.5201-r0. Why is it that the product version numbers don't match the packge version numbers?
