When I start Google earth, it starts normally, I can "travel" with my 3DConnexion Stick, all work fine. But, as soon I click the mouse or trackpad, it suddenly quits.

I applyed all I found about google earth with Lion, e.g. :

Disconnect from internet (turn off airport or disconnect Ethernet cable). 

Start Google Earth and go to Preferences (command ,) 

Go to General tab and uncheck "show startup tips" 

Go to Cache and clear both disk and memory caches 

Quit Google Earth and connect to internet 

Start Google Earth, it should work now.

I also deleted the pList file, and my user settings and caches.

Is there a solution ?

Thanks for helping.
