I have fedora 20 beta with gnome. Got the google earth package, but caan't install it.

i do: sudo rpm -i google-earth-stable_current_i386.rpm

this is what i get: file /usr/bin from install of google-earth-stable- conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-19.fc20.i686

How do i install this? I need it.

Same problem on Fedora 21 workstation x86_64. Download from Google Linux ran but failed to install completely, and YUM command line from terminal as SU did also. I have an icon on the desktop but can not uninstall.

Wondering what to do next...

Is there a repository for all these great packages in ? wine-silverlight seems to be missing.

@alfC coming soon, I am working wine-silverlight but I need to complete pipelight (pipelight is the best solution), don't worry ;) Check my src.rpm

@davidas, many thanks for your work, can you post something like this when you have something analogous?

@alfC Read the guidelines, but don't worry here the analogous check the date ;)

Regarding Silverlight/Pipelight, this works now:

Another solution is to use rpmrebuild to edit the rpm, have a look at

Hi friend , i use this step for install google earth run in a terminal as root :

su -c 'yum -y install wget glibc ImageMagick desktop-file-utils shared-mime-info'

wget -c

su -c 'yum -y install /lib/'

su -c 'yum install redhat-lsb.i686'

sh GoogleEarthLinux.bin

if you don't have install wget just type in terminal yum install wget

Used these above CMD lines. And it all worked fine. On Korora 20. Thank YOU!

This answer was taken from here (duplicate question) and seems to work even with Fedora 21.
