Running Google Earth under Wine
Frank Neugebauer writes "Google Earth was created to put satellite imagery and other geographic information right on the (Windows) desktop. Unfortunately no Linux version is available jet. In the meantime the Linux Community was trying to get Google Earth running on a Linux Desktop using Wine. This Tutorial will explain how to install and run it. To be honest, it is very easy to install and to run it, but you have to live with some deficiencies. Nevertheless, if you have no Windows machine around you and would like to display and view satellite imagery but also to handle and process it in other Linux application, this is the way how to do it."
