[SOLVED] Google Earth - grey screen

More GE problems.

Now, when I start GE, I get nothing displayed.  Just a blank, black screen where the Earth image should be and a blank, grey screen when I zoom in.  (Just to make it clear, all the menus, sidebars etc are displayed correctly, it's just the Earth display that's affected.)

Googling the issue shows that a number of people are experiencing this problem with Intel graphics drivers, but I have nvidia (nvidia-304xx driver) and the only suggested fix, to untick 'atmosphere' in the View menu, does not work.

Is anyone else experiencing this?
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do?

Many thanks,

David Shaw

I experience the same problem with Google earth 7. I have "fixed" it by installing google-earth6 (available from the AUR).
