I downloaded the rpm package of oficial site  (google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm --> 32 bit .rpm, For Fedora/openSUSE - http://www.google.com/earth/download/ge/agree.html). 

I installed ok, as I discussed at the Forum Mageia, in topic "Google Earth can't run" ( https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=76&start=25&hilit=Google+Earth ).

After two months of use, I did not register any errors.

Perhaps a package skeleton solve, such as Adobe Flash: Mageia Wiki( http://www.mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=mageia1:errata#the_skeleton_adobe_flash_player_package_only_exists_in_the_nonfree_32bit_repository )

Under Mageia Cauldron with LXDE,
When I install Google Earth all seems OK
but when I reboot there are many problems with LXDE
some apps don't work and there are no pictures.
Also no picture for lxdm.

I don't understand this in the Mdv changelog:

Wed Mar 26 2008 Anne Nicolas <anne.nicolas@mandriva.com> 0.5-1mdv2008.1

+ Revision: 190361
- Remove Picasa as we have now agreement

but when, because of a Picasa package request, I searched and searched to find how Picasa could be legally packaged for Mageia, all I found was that Google wants users to use their repo's :/

@ Rémi
Sorry if I was wrong about Picasa

Could add a package skeleton "get-Google-Earth" in to the official repository of Mageia 3 (like was done with the package flashplayer or get-skype)?

In Mageia 3. beta 4 64bit, was necessary to install the file 

The file lib64glibc_lsb and lsb-core-lib64 was already installed in M3 beta4.

See Mageia Forum: https://forums.mageia.org/en/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4718&p=33043&hilit=googleearth#p33043
Comment 8 macxi 2013-05-01 17:44:09 CEST
In Mageia 3. RC 64 bit, was also necessary to install the file 
libglibc_lsb-2.4.7-8.mga3.i586  to run GoogleEarth

I'm not sure what should be done with this request, assigning to the new default assignee for package requests to decide.

> I reopen report into a backport request.

ehh... It wasn't closed and, moreover, the skeleton package didn't land in cauldron, did it?

We only have backports in stable.

After it get packaged in cauldron it is possible to reopen this request, set the version to a stable version, and change it into a backport request :-)
