Install Google Earth in Ubuntu 14.04 Answered

I used the https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-install-Google-Earth-in-Linux-the-easy-way/  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 http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthLinux.bin && 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

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

wget http://dl.google.com/dl/earth/client/current/google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb

sudo apt-get -f install

rm google-earth-stable_current_amd64.deb
