Re: Street view - new version available in google earth

I wish I could get Google Earth to install for me, their Linux install is totally fubar as far as I'm concerned.

Your kidding, I get 90% of my software from the software centre, I just search for what I want, click install and few seconds later its ready to use.
For some reason Google Earth doesn't appear in the software centre.
But I wouldn't go back to Windows, no thanks, you can keep your viruses Smiley

Re: Street view - new version available in google earth

just tried Google Earth, Google Street view on Firefox, neither navigate on the mouse wheel, Street view Zooms and so do satalite and Earth
for a while the street navigation has gone weird, the forward and backward arrows are not on the white line

If you use the Medibuntu repository in your software centre, then Google Earth was included up until Lucid(10.04) but has now been dropped for Maverick(10.10).
However, I am sitting here with my new laptop, freshly built two days ago with Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat, I simply went to http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/earth/download/ge/, hit <Download>, selected 32-bit .deb, opened with software centre, and it is all working fine  Smiley

Cool, just installing it now, that's a huge improvement from a couple of months ago, the install back then was complicated and a mess.

If you believe that Linux is so much hard work, then you haven't tried it recently.
Even over the past 18 months it has transformed from being a bit of an effort to get going, into a slick and effortless delight.
Try Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat), you might just be surprised (especially by the ultra fast boot time !).

That's almost a complete description of Windows.
