I installed google earth, using the 32bit google-earth-pro.deb for linux from google's website.
Since then, however, I've had a repeating error: Whenever I open google earth, the it copies my background screen and shows that, instead of the normal google earth map:

The screenshot

As you can see, the normal map is just in one tiny corner. What could be causing this?

  • If you start gedit, is the editing window also transparent? Do you have "low graphics mode" set in Compiz?

  • Sometimes yes, actually. It goes away after about 10 seconds, or so.

  • Just a hunch. Try deleting the .xinputrc file. rm -i .xinputrc let me know if that fixes the problem, and I'll write an answer that you can accept, ok?

  • It wasn't there: rm: cannot remove '.xinputrc': No such file or directory
