When I run Google Earth i see the Earth ok, but when i try to Zoom In
the images starts blinking, more zoom in worst definition, and Google
Earth turns unstable and sometimes crash


Cuando echo a andar Google Earth todo se ve bien pero si quiero hacer
un Acercamniento las imagenes parpadean y pieden definicion y Google
Earth se torna inestable y a veces incluso sale del programa

Ok im BACK...

After My Laptop Crashes, im reinstall UBUNTU again (10.10),

The problem with GOOGLE EARTH persists

i dont know too much about Ubuntu, but im suppose the problem
is with my Graphics Card, maybe the Driver.

Im disable the VISUAL EFFECTS...

ny suggestions for this ISSUE ?

I'm also running Google Earth on an HP Pavilion dv3 notebook. And like you, I have a several experiences of GE crashing on first three attempts to open the application. I'm running Compiz and I think that's one reason. However, I'm not sure if it really is.

Try not to move your mouse cursor when you open Google Earth for the first time. It works for me.

Thanks for the suggestion, Google Earth stillblinking when i zoom in and finally crashes... :o(


Is your experience that Google Earth crashes when you launch it, or that you're able to launch it but it crashes when you're running it, or some combination of the two? Does the description in this question also describe the problem you've been having, or is the problem you've been having different? (When you answer, please click "Just Add a Comment", as you did before and as I am doing with this post, so as not to change the status of this question.)

Yes, Eliah, Google Earth crashes when I launch it and/or I'm able to launch it then it crashes. But like I mentioned, not moving the mouse when it's launching does not make it crash, at least for several times for me.

I downloaded Google Earth and am running an Asus laptop, model U52F. It doesn't flash or crash, but the spacing between letters is gigantic. It is set to 32 bit colors, anistropic filtering is medium, labels/icon size is set to small, and my map size is small-medium. Every other program on machine is running perfectly.

The spacing on letters is very wide and hard to read, anyway to fix this? It's more of an annoyance than anything else.
