New install of F16(x86_64) and used dangermouse auto plus to install google earth. It said the install was successful and I have an icon in the applications grid.
Using the icon, I am returned to the current desktop/application I have open. Nothing appears to happen.
Using terminal, the system freezes the mouse-pad and nothing happens and I get this error
/usr/bin/google-earth: ./googleearth-bin: /lib/ld-lsb.so.3: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
From another site I tried this:
$yum what provides /lib/lb-lsb.so.3
and found it.
$yum install redhat...i686
I rebooted the computer and tried the icon, nothing.
From terminal I get this now.
./googleearth-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libfontconfig.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
$ whereis libfontconfig.so.1
Do I need to move the ...so.1 file to a different location? Would it be /usr/bin/something?
No, the answer is in the following post. I don't have nividia anything, so I followed bbfuller's suggestion.
$yum install redhat-lsb.i686 redhat-lsb-graphics.i686 redhat-lsb-printing.i686
Now Google Earth works fine.
Thanks go to the gurus that push us noobs to look a little harder.
