Google Earth is a great program to see a place from satellite. It’s designed for Windows before but it’s also available for Linux.

You can download the program from www.google.com. It’s in linux installer format, so you don’t have to compile it again.

Step 1. Installation Process

After you downloaded the program, go to its directory and run the installer.

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/Packages$ ls -lh GoogleEarthLinux.bin

-rwxrwxrwx 1 taufanlubis taufanlubis 22M 2007-10-20 15:06 GoogleEarthLinux.bin

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/Packages$

taufanlubis@toshiba:~/MyData/Packages$ sudo ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

You will get the screen above after the installation process is done.

You can run it from Applications > Internet > Google Earth.

Type your destination at ‘Fly to’ text box. For example, I stay in Bogor, Indonesia. So, I just type ‘bogor, indonesia’ in ‘Fly to text box’. But, make sure that you connected to the internet otherwise the google earth will not work.
