[solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

I'm using the Google Earth AUR package.
When I click on the little blue squares in the satellite view, only a big white placeholder window for the picture is shown, but no picture is embedded. Only a small question mark is shown in the middle of a the rather large white window, clicking on it brings me to Firefox, showing the picture in Panoramio. Please help me! How can I enable the embedded pictures?

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

What is the output of these commands?

ldd /opt/google-earth/googleearth-bin
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/google-earth/" ldd /opt/google-earth/googleearth-bin

Sorry that I cannot be more specific, I had this issue too but don't remember exactly how I or what solved it. I know that for me with the same package GE wouldn't even start without specifying the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Maybe it could also only be a missing dependency.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

I had strange issues with Google Earth too, I just blame my graphical drivers. I updated those a few days ago and it worked great. I also changed my window manager from Openbox to Awesome, that may have something to do with it. I'll check it later when I get home.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

With kde4.2 settings->desktop "enable desktop effects", I got a similar problem in googleearth with the proprietory ATI graphics driver. I had to turn off desktop effects or switch to xorg radeonhd. I switched to radeonhd as it handles dual monitors more to my liking (external HD 42 inch TV). Googleearth works but is obviously slower.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

I am sure I used the same PKGBUILD. So one last try could be to deinstall Google Earth, delete the hidden Google folder in the home directory and also /opt/google-earth should it be still present.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

Have you logged in/out since installing Google Earth? Always do this if you have issues with a package that installs in /opt; there's some variables that need updating.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

Just edit  /opt/google-earth/qt.conf , delete its contents and paste this into it :

for i686 :

[Paths]
Documentation=/usr/share/doc
Libraries=/usr/lib
Plugins=/usr/lib/qt/plugins
Translations=/usr/share/qt/translation

for x86_64 :

[Paths]
Documentation=/usr/share/doc
Libraries=/opt/lib32/usr/lib
Plugins=/opt/lib32/usr/lib/qt/plugins
Translations=/usr/share/qt/translations

And then the Panoramio pictures are back smile

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

Well it's due to the fact that the packagers decided to remove the embedded libs provided by google earth in order to make it rely on the default system libraries. That results in a smaller package that fixes many issues such as the crappy fonts or the infamous libssl bug, but the only problem was that googleearth could not find the additional directories used by system qt and tried to load its own qt plugins for image reading, which automatically resulted in failure. By editing qt.conf, you provide googleearth with the real paths and so you can fully rely on full system qt with all its functionalities.

Glad it worked for you smile

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

mightyjaym thank you for your explanation. Could this qt.conf be generated somehow during the install? I'd like to send a patch to the packager of GoogleEarth on AUR.

Re: [solved] Google Earth does not show embedded pictures

Well, just adding the custom qt.conf in the sources and replacing the original file that comes shipped with the googleearth archive after extraction should do the job, I guess. This fix is already included in the bin32-google-earth package for x86_64.

Try using my suggested PKGBUILD @ comments,

It deletes many files from GE dir that are already in Arch Linux
http://djgera.pastebin.com/f7befd5c2

Or simply execute the following commands

cd /opt/google-earth
rm -f lib{crypto.so.*,Qt*,GLU.so.*,curl.so.*,gcc_s.so.*,stdc++.so.*,z.so.*}
rm -rf plugins
rm -f qt.conf

Libraries=/opt/lib32/usr/lib
Plugins=/opt/lib32/usr/lib/qt/plugins
Translations=/usr/share/qt/translations

I have the same problem with photos in google earth, but there is no qt.conf file in my /opt/google/earth/free directory.
/opt/lib32/ also doesn't exist.
Maybe I didn't install something or... the paths changed since then?
Heeelp! My newbie non-linux brain doesn't know what to do!
