Google Earth with no earth Fusselfan 10/5/09 11:21 AM
I have installed GE on Ubuntu 9.04, 64-bit. The graphic is nvidia, driver 185.18.36.
The window, where must be the earth, is totally black, nothing to see.

I have exactly the same problem, Debian testing, 64-bit, nvidia driver 185 (from debian unstable).
Since the problem has not been reported very often, I guess the problem is related to 64bit + nvidia 185.

Any help is appreciated.

With nvidia 190.42 it works perfectly.

I was missing the 32-bit version of nvidia-glx. After manually installing nvidia-glx-ia32, everything works like a charm.

I also had this problem with Arch Linux 64 bit with nvidia drivers. Resolved it quickly by installing lib32-nvidia-utils with pacman.

On Fedora 15 64bit with GE6 64bit rpm there were no globe / earth, just a black screen.

I had already installed:
akmod-nvidia in version 270.41.06-2.fc15 (64bit)
kmod-nvidia-2.6.38.6-27.fc15.x86_64 in version 270.41.06-2.fc15 (64bit)
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia in version 270.41.06-1.fc15 (64bit)
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs in version 270.41.06-1.fc15 (64bit)

but I additional had to install:

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs in version 270.41.06-1.fc15 (32bit) to make the glob/earth show.
