    Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 6.0.3.2197.............................................................................................
    This version of Google Earth requires LSB 4.0 support which you
    do not seem to have.
    ./setup.sh: line 285: [: missing `]'
    su: user yum install redhat-lsb does not exist
    ./setup.sh: setup.data/bin/Linux/amd64/setup.gtk2: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
    

    BTW: the correct download command is:

    wget http://dl.google.com/earth/client/current/GoogleEarthLinux.bin

    The link provided in this guide doesn’t work
