These are the steps I used/required to install the downloaded Google Earth:

Google Earth 6.0 on Ubuntu 10.10

 sudo apt-get install lsb-core

 chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin
 ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin --target /tmp/ge
  [RESULTS IN AN ERROR!!!]
 cd /tmp/ge/setup.data/bin/Linux/x86/
 mv setup.gtk setup.gtk2
 cd /tmp/ge
 sudo ./setup.sh

Good luck,
George
