For the last one, you need to do "# sh *google earth .bin title*"

Thanks for your suggestion LOL.
No lol, we don't do
# sh *google earth .bin title*

cos the google earth file is not .sh but .bin, so we don't need to do your way.

Hi lol, I haven't tried to using Mandriva. but, I think every linux when install .bin application has a common way. So, I only explain my way step by step.:

1. $ sudo su --> in ubuntu we use it to be root

2. # cd /home --> directory, where is google earth placed (this command can be used for all linux)

3. # chmod 777 googleearth-linux-plus-4.3.7284.3916.bin --> change mode of google earth so we can read, write, and execute (this command can be used for all linux)
or you can use

# chmod +x googleearth-linux-plus-4.3.7284.3916.bin --> change mode execution

4. # googleearth-linux-plus-4.3.7284.3916.bin

starting installation of google earth
