Please DO NOT flag out-of-date, unless there's a new version for Linux as well:

$ curl -sL | grep -Pom1 "Version: \K[^-]*"

@manuelschneid3r, 7.1.5 is for Windows only.

Get it to work with Panoramio pictures working and without crashing.
On x86_64 (with nvidia-beta drivers - 364.12)

Pre-install Freeimage (aur)
Pre-install Libpng15 (aur) **built it manually with: makepkg -si --skippgpcheck
(make sure all other dependencies are installed also)

Install Google-Earth with yaourt. (Read the PKGBUILD)
**Modify PKGBUILD (and enable panoramio fix=1 and 64bit=1)
(save it and continue the install)

After succesful install (and before first tome run of google-earth)
make sure to apply: sudo rm -r ~/.googleearth/Cache/

Run Google-Earth and voila, everything works, no lagging, and no crashes :)

...or use the wine-google-earth-pro version if your lazy from the AUR.

Read the PKGBUILD.

Could you make a package for 64 bit version? I mean instead
Thank you.

I got right on that. Evidence:

@eazar001, like just stated, it isn't for Linux.

@lmouillart, 7.1.5 isn't for Linux.
