I noticed that Google Earth was not in my menu. As I recall, it was recently updated.
I issued a command to start from Terminal and the proram would not launch. It crashed. I got the follwing:
Google Earth has caught signal 11.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Google Earth has crashed.
This is a bug in the program, and should never happen under normal
circumstances. A bug report and debugging data have been written
to this text file:
Please include this file if you submit a bug report to Google.
I did a reinstall. It is now listed in the menu, but still will not lanch. Launching from terminal gives me the same error.
