[ubuntu] Google earth crashes

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Anyone help me with this one -- I downloaded the i386 deb package using Code: wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current... followed by Code: sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_i386.deb Then launched via the terminal, - it shows the splash screen and then crashes. An error message tells me it is a bug that "should never normally occur" ? Go figure! I have attached the crash file, but it means nothing to me. I am hoping either someone knows the fix for the error, or can decipher the txt file and find out what is occurring. (Hardware)
