[kubuntu] Google Earth won't start - 13.10 edition

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – There are some old threads with this issue related to some much older versions of Ubuntu so, here we are again with Google Earth refusing to start. It's the usual splash screen and a very brief picture of planet Earth and then - poof! - it's gone. It ran fine on this same installation yesterday. Also works on a Xubuntu 13.10 partition on the same machine. They are both using the Nvidia drivers. I tried it in a terminal and got this, if it helps anyone see what's going on: Code: [1111/184114:ERROR:net_util.cc(2195)] Not implemented reached in bool net::HaveOnlyLoopbackAddresses() (Hardware)
