Today I tried to install the (new) version of Google Earth 5.0 (beta), cause some one told me about new Streetview pics in town..
After I installed the app, I just tried to run,.. Saw the splash and then everything closes..
I started the program in a shell and there is the problem:
Installing desktop icon... Warning: Unable to create prefs directory '/home/pbaasch/.googleearth'. File exists. ./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
The solution is very simple, just a workaround, but it works:
Find the file
libcrypto.so.0.9.8 and just rename or delete it…
