Install Google Earth 6 (beta)

Download from http://www.google.com/earth/index.html .
chmod +x GoogleEarthLinux.bin
./GoogleEarthLinux.bin 
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 6.0.0.1735..............................................................
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty
^
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found
^
Couldn't load 'setup.data/setup.xml'


./GoogleEarthLinux.bin --target /tmp/ge  (extract to /tmp/ge )
You will see same error as above ! Just do :
cd /tmp/ge/setup.data/bin/Linux/x86/  ( both 32 and 64 bit )
mv setup.gtk setup.gtk2
cd /tmp/ge
./setup.sh
Now installation will start....
If you get exec: 50: ./googleearth-bin: not found when trying to start Google Earth 6 you need to :
#apt-get install lsb-core
