  1. Dear Ji m,

    I have installed Google Earth 7.1 64 bit on Ubuntu 13.10 following this tutorial. https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/earth/CkHwQHkt3Zo

    It worked for few days, and after that, it is crashing immediately after getting launched. Below is a report when I started the GE from terminal.

    Please help, if you can.

    Best wishes.
