Google Earth Flight Simulator

Some time last week, Google expanded Google Earth with Google Sky. As fascinating as Google Sky is, that's not the focus of this post. Along with the latest update comes a hidden feature of which I cannot seem to find any other information about.

It's not in the release notes and a search on Google produces no results. Seems Google have done one of their unpublicised updates they're becoming well-known for.

What I'm talking about is a flight simulator embedded within GE. Sounds awesome, doesn't it?

Can it actually be installed in Ubuntu?

I tried for hours to get this installed with no luck. I followed several instructions and it failed each time. I even resorted to Automatix, but even that didn't work.


learn how to ask. you you don't say what went wrong, others won't be able to help you. 

usually, you open a terminal, go to the folder where you downloaded GE, and use a command like:

sudo sh GoogleEarth.bin
