Install Google Earth in Ubuntu 14.04

I used the  link to downlaod and install Google Earth  following the instructions below --

"Just go to terminal, paste this command and press enter and it will download and install it for you:

wget && chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin && ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

It can't get any easier."
The terminal did indicate it was downloading and there appeared the GE logo on my desktop, buTT when I double click it nothing has happened for 10 minutes.
Anybody help? TIA

you left off some of the command. try both lines

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 lsb-corewget -O google-earth64.deb


sudo dpkg -i google-earth64.debrm google-earth64.deb

sorry my mistake that for a very old version of ubuntu and no longer works try this.


sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

sudo apt-get -f install

rm google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb
