- If you haven't yet, Install Google Earth in Ubuntu Maverick, Lucid first of all.
- Now you need to edit ~/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf file. I am using gedit below to edit the file, you can obviously choose the editor of your choice.
- Now, search for "enableTips" inside the conf file and if it exists, change its value from "true" to "false". If it does not exist, you need to add the following under "[General]" category.
- Save and Exit. Done. Now try launching Google Earth in Ubuntu, all's going to be fine.
