Subject description: Google Earth probs & solution
 

Hi, guys. Been using 5.7.1 for a couple of years and it's been a while since I had any issues with Puppy, BUT...
I grabbed v605 and tried it. All good, but couldn't install Google Earth after half a dozen tries. Then I grabbed the 64-bit version. Same problems.
Then I saw mention of PT606 in 32 and 64 and thought they might have fixed a few things, so I grabbed them and tried Google Earth again.
Nope. No success, no luck, no way.
After some swearing, I decided to see if one of the older GE's would work with them, so I went hunting through my pile here and found:

google-earth-6.0.3.2197-x86.pet
and
google-earth-7.1.2.2041-x86.pet

After all the hassles and failed downloads (from the QuickPet that didn't work) and general failures to load or run, I was surprised when google-earth-7.1.2.2041-x86.pet installed and ran apparently perfectly.
Still testing. If it doesn't work out, I'll post about that, but I've been messing with GE for about an hour and haven't had even one glitch.

SO... there's a possible answer for you if you're having the same GE issues. Might have to install some 32-bit stuff, but I've no idea what exactly.
Luck with it all,
Ed
