Hello Lee:

If you are on ubuntu 7.10 type in the following command in a terminal:

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/gutsy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install googleearth

If you are using hardy (ubuntu 8.04) and you want the latest 4.3 package then:

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install googleearth-4.3

Note 1. If you want 4.2 package then,

sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install googleearth

2.You will have to accept the Google Earth EULA.

Bhavani Shankar.
