I am scared to change anything.  The law of unintended consequences is on my mind.

I just wanted to install Google Earth.  How did I know it was so complicated in Linux?  I GIVE UP.  Here ends this thread.

@Kenneth Taylor I don't know if you need google-earth for some specific purpose, but if you don't, you can try Gnome-maps
Open a terminal and type
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install gnome-mapshit Enter, type in your password when asked, check the info about the install, and if you're ok with it type Y it's around 40mb. Now, wait till the install process finishes and once it does, click on menu and search for it, just type maps, and it should appear, select it and launch it  :003:

Read here for more info
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-maps
https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Maps

There is also Marble which you can install the same way as Gnome-maps
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install marble
And you can use Mapton too, this one can be downloaded as an appimage, which doesn't need to be installed; download, make executable and run! https://bit.ly/mapton-211-appimage  which one you decide to use is up to you, just know there are more alternatives

Thanks.  These are somewhat useful for my purposes, but lack all the features of Google Earth.  (I use those features.)

Are the features of Google Earth you use available in this ? -

Zoom Earth - https://zoom.earth/
Free, no account/login needed, Web based no install needed, use menu in top left to select.
I tried it out in Firefox and Opera browsers.

Such as? Flight simulator? I don't use google-earth, so I'm curious. For example, these are Mapton's features:
https://mapton.org/features/

    Free and Open Source
    Runs on Linux, MacOS and Windows
    Bookmark support
    Image export
    Open location in external programs*
    Copy location to various formats*
    Coordinate transformation*
    Chart rendering
    Time aware
    Measuring tool**
    Different map providers*
        Google Maps
        NASA WorldWind
        Open Street Map
        OpenLayers
    Different map styles*
        Many included
    Different search engines*
        Bookmarks
        GeoNames
        Google Maps
        Nominatim (by OSM)
    Light and dark themes
    (data) Update manager*
    WMS**

*  Extensible via plugins
**WorldWind MapEngine only

These are Gnome-maps':
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GNOME_Maps
Browse OpenStreetMap using libchamplain.
Find places with Nominatim service.
Route planning with GraphHopper service.
Find your location with GeoClue service.
Basic editing of OpenStreetMap data: add and edit POIs.


These are Marble's:
Actually, they're too many to list here, so take a look for yourself https://marble.kde.org/features.php

  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit

  • CPU: i5-7500

  • MEMORY: 16Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce GT 710

  • Kernel: 5.x
Could the computer be 32 bit, the link I showed just gave 64 bit installs.
https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#download-pro
The Google News homepage in Firefox and Chrome has a nine dot menu in the top right corner that includes Google search, maps, photos, youtube, gmail, and a whole bunch more including Google Earth.
Not sure if it would work on a 32 bit machine and it is slow on my old 64 bit machine.

I require features such as Street View, the ability to view old satellite images, and saving and labeling images.  In other words, Google Earth.

All of those apps I mentioned can do that too.
