This question was originally filed as bug #349820.

To install Googleearth 5 installed from GoogleEarth bin file.

wget http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthLinux.bin
chmod 700 GoogleEarthLinux.bin
sudo ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
cd /opt/google-earth/
sudo find $gearth_dir -name 'libQt*' -exec mv {} {}-bak \;

then type:
googleearth

if you get
Warning: Unable to create prefs directory '/home/fation/.googleearth'. File exists.
Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:
rm -fr $HOME/.googleearth

if you get
./googleearth-bin: relocation error: /usr/lib/i686/cmov/libssl.so.0.9.8: symbol BIO_test_flags, version OPENSSL_0.9.8 not defined in file libcrypto.so.0.9.8 with link time reference

Please open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

cd /opt/google-earth/
sudo mv libcrypto.so.0.9.8 libcrypto.so.0.9.8.old
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so libcrypto.so.0.9.8

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

Then retry to start googleearth

Hope this helps

Ciao
