I have installed Google Earth Pro (64-bit) on my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

When I launch Google Earth Pro, map is shown in very small window. I have un-installed and re-installed but the problem is as it is.map is on left upper corner


Happened to me too, Its a graphics driver problem. It does not work on X.org nouveau graphics driver. More on it here. So you can uninstall the present version 7.3 and install 7.1 version from here.

    The proper solution is to use the Nvidia proprietary drivers which is now a requirement. Downgrading is not recommended, regardless of what has been discussed in the link you posted. It's just procrastination. At one point, sooner than later, the old version will stop working. – user692175 Aug 16 '17 at 11:23

    @Deepank Thank you. It has solved the issue for now. I have downgraded the version. – learner Aug 18 '17 at 3:15
  • MichaelBay, Thank you for your input, I have tried many things to update my graphics driver (RS690 Radeon X1200), but found that open source gallium is most reliable. – learner Aug 18 '17 at 3:17
  • I have a Macbook Air with some intel graphics card that had the same issue. Using 7.1.x made it work here, too. – cweiske Mar 15 '18 at 20:34

    Interesting, I'm using the latest Intel Graphics drivers on 16.0.4 LTS and doesn't work; downgrading does.
