What works

google earth 7.1.2   wine 1.6  ubuntu 12.04

Installation is OK (Just a message "fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.")

In the first screen we can activate google map, Google maps is OK,

What does not

Start of Google Earth crash with message that indicates bad path for file "\Google\GoogleEarth",

I modify this by creating the directory, the file and rectify the path with "wine regedit" for adding "d:"

 The first screen is now good but the portion of screen to see the earth is black! (Probably bad use of opengl/directX)

 Using directx freeze the computer.

The Google Earth system is working, but I would like to use 360-degree cameras and photos.
