Google Earth 7.0 and 7.1 Subject description: 188.8.131.5242 and 184.108.40.2060 - each as .PET and .SFS packages (Test)
These are uploaded for testing purposes with no warranty. They will not work for everybody. It depends on computer specifications and Puppy version and especially graphics hardware and drivers. They are resource-hungry and tend to store a lot of cache data in /root/.googleearth but this can be deleted as necessary from tools>options>cache if you notice your save-file space is getting gobbled up.
They can be started from the menu entry in the "Internet" category or in console with the command googleearth or google-earth and it is a minor detail, but I have the correct icons displaying in the JWM window and tray.
In my testing, the 220.127.116.1142 version works fine in Debian and Ubuntu Puppy variants (Precise, Wheezy, Lucid, Exprimo, Raring) with no console errors, but won't start in Slacko or Racy.
The 18.104.22.1680 version is a very recent release (shows as a beta) and is considerably larger. For me it shows some console errors in all Puppies but runs in all of them including Slacko and Racy. I also find that if it is maximized and I close and then re-open it, the window does not fill the whole screen. Not sure why.
Be sure to click the correct "download" button on the datafilehost page.
