What's "fully patched arch with kernel 4.0.4-2"? Latest one is 4.1.4-1:

The Qt/Architecture tweaks can be enabled on top of the PKGBUILD. The "Texture Compression" trick is also on the Wiki:

I see the same error as rigon when I recompiled per hutou's suggestions (64b etc).

I think I saw the same error with i386, but I didn't keep notes.

According to Alchemist251 at this thread:!topic/earth/U8SlQy2nJLM

the problem is buggy qt libraries bundled with GE7. Alchemist251 points to this thread:!category-topic/earth/linux/_h4t6SpY_II%5B1-25-false%5D

I haven't followed up on it yet, so this may or may not be a solution, but a) the alleged problem is specific and not black magic; and b) I've tried several (recent) suggestions posted here as well as suggestions posted in the first link above ("sudo", deleting ~/.googleearth), but GE7 continues to crash.

Including the first link above for the OP statement that GE7 runs fine if he shuts down the network before invoking GE7.

Running fully patched arch with kernel 4.0.4-2, FX-4100, Nvidia GeForce GTX 750, nvidia proprietary drivers, 16G mainstore.

I doubt that it's relevant, but I have a 4K display (which requires special configuration, so who knows?)

thank you hutou, it worked now.

attempted fix had worked in the past but since an update was not working. after a new update and your post I gave an other try again and works!!!

so good news for everyone.

@rigon: The "Not implemented reached in bool net::HaveOnlyLoopbackAddresses()" isn't the issue. I see it, too, with the latest version but it doesn't crash for me.

I'm using Mesa 10.5.2 on an AMD card.

Is there any way to download the previous deb package

I also got the same error after trying to install google-earth-stable_7.1.4.1529_i386

Here is the output when I try to run google-earth:

[0416/] Not implemented reached in bool net::HaveOnlyLoopbackAddresses()
Google Earth has caught signal 11.

And here is the crashlog:

The last version doesn't work on my x86_64 arch, the previous version was working well. I've tried with _64=1 and _attempt_fix=1 but it's always the same problem, crash signal 11 after splash screen.

Please change the optional depends : lib32-nouveau-dri no more exist and is replaced by lib32-mesa

On Arch64, a standard install from AUR succeeded, but GE crashed on startup (error = "unknown graphic card")
I then recompiled the package with _64=1 : GE did launch, but 2 issues remained : no panoramio and search not working.
The first can be solved by installing the packages freeimage and libpng15, and then recompiling the package google-earth with the variables _64 and _attempt_fix set to 1 in the PKGBUILD.
The second issue is related to the decimal separator of some locales (fr for me), and is easily solved by inserting the line
export LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8
just before the line
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH ./googleearth-bin "$@"
in the file /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth
This worked for me : GE works fine, no crashes.

one more version, and still no Panoramio :(
