I have installed googleearth Version 7.3.2 from the "mv" Overlay. The program strarts, i have all Menus and Bars. But the "Globe- Window" is buggy. The most part of that screen- section is the same from the previous part of the monitor, like background or open programs. And in the top left part there is a very small part from the globe: Screenshot here

I have found a few usable results on WebSpiders:
1.) The Directorys have wrong permissions:
/home/gladdle/.config/Google drwxr-xr-x 2 gladdle gladdle
/home/gladdle/.googleearth drwx------ 4 gladdle gladdle

2.) The user is not in the 3d / driver / opengl group
I am in those groups: audio, plugdev, usb, users, video and wheel

3.) Start in the terminal
I have startet it in the terminal, but there is NO output!

4.) Start as root:
Same Problem


Got someone some ideas?

start as root is always the last resort. a company should never ask you for root access.
what is "mv" Overlay by the way?

also you could use https://www.google.com/earth/ and not install anything.
