Google Earth on EeePC 901

I eventually got this to work well. Ironically, it was only a matter of following what it said in the wiki.
I provided details of what I did in this post to the forum.
The key to where I slipped up was that the file /home/user/.config/Google/GoogleEarthPlus.conf did NOT contain the line


However, instead of either adding the line

to the same file or opening Google Earth, waiting till it stabilized and then opening View and unchecking Atmosphere, I chose to ignore this.
However, after a reminder of this from a reply to my forum post, I unchecked Atmosphere in View and everything worked fine thereafter.
In addition, making this change to View>Atmosphere put the line

in the file we´re discussing so it only needs to be done once.
