You can uninstall Google Earth as any other package. From the terminal you can do it using the following commands:
- Find the exact package name:
dpkg --list 'google-earth*' | cat
which may show that the package name is google-earth-stable.
sudo dpkg -P google-earth-stable
If you installed Google Earth by a method that included running sh GoogleEarthLinux.bin (now depreciated), the unistallation can be done by pasting the following command in a terminal:
This command is all on one line. Copy it and paste it in your terminal.
sudo rm -rf /opt/google-earth && sudo rm /usr/share/mime/application/vnd.google-earth.* /usr/share/mimelnk/application/vnd.google-earth.* /usr/share/applnk/Google-googleearth.desktop /usr/share/mime/packages/googleearth-mimetypes.xml /usr/share/gnome/apps/Google-googleearth.desktop /usr/share/applications/Google-googleearth.desktop /usr/local/bin/googleearth
You may also wish to remove your user preferences folder, although this is not necessary if you intend to reinstall later. This directory contains Google Earth settings and the cache:
rm -rf ~/.googleearth
