    Here is the solution for the problem: googleearth-bin not found error - Google Earth Help

    Nothing to do with BackTrack.

    I read that solution prior to posting. I did apt-get install lsb-core and re-installed googleearth again. My screen then freezes! when google earth tries to start.

    I have lsb-core installed and /lib/ld-linux.so.2 and /lib/ld-lsb.so.3 linked. After searching for how the Ubuntu Intrepid people solved this I saw that many had success after turning off "Atmospheric Rendering". This site told how to do that in the standard Gnome desktop Ubuntu has, but I can't find it anywhere in KDE?

    I'm going to guess it's a video driver thing. It works just fine in my virtualbox install.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Hmmm... Can any of guys recommend a good card or driver to get the job done? I may have to invest in some new hardware.
