Make sure the lsb-core package is installed! Open a terminal from Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (in the Panel) or from the Dash (in new Unity desktop) and type (or copy-paste) the following command into the terminal:

sudo apt-get install lsb-core

64bit users: You should use this instead if installing the 32bit package

sudo apt-get install libc6-i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 libsm6:i386 \ libglu1-mesa:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libxext6:i386 \ libxrender1:i386 libx11-6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 lsb-core

All this recommended for the installation of Google Earth for older Ubuntu versions does not work on Ubuntu 16.04 anymore. Who can help?

  • Hi there. Have you managed to install it without any problems? – Elysium Oct 9 '16 at 12:51

You can try this I managed to do this in gnome Ubuntu LTS 16.04

wget -O google-earth.sh http://drive.noobslab.com/data/apps/google-earth/google-earth.sh
chmod +x google-earth.sh;sudo ./google-earth.sh

If the font in Google Earth Ugly, we can add msttcorefonts using the following command:
