Google Earth Won’t Start – Signal 11

Google Earth Won’t Start – Signal 11

Recently I installed Google Earth on myUbuntu computer, but it would not start. Starting it the terminal, I saw the following error: “Google Earth has caught signal 11”. Here is what I did to get Google Earth to run in Ubuntu.

On an Ubuntu based computer system, you need to open up the terminal, and change to the directory where Google Earth has its libraries. Typically this is/opt/google/earth/free. Then type the following:

wget http://librarian.launchpad.net/7037027/libGL.so.1

Then run the following command: chmod a+x libGL.so.1

This fixed my problem of Google Earth not starting.
