Hello, I installed Ubuntu on my laptop along with google earth. I would like to use gps with it, and the program has gps listed in tools menu but it requires the google earth plus version, for which I have purchased a license for. But there doesn't seem to be an upgrade option in the help menu like in the windows version. I'm I missing something here?

You mean other then a version of Google Earth Pro does not exist for Linux?

You may be able to use your windows version via Wine or cross-over while in Ubuntu.

Normally, I'd post a link to the appdb entry, but that seems to be having problems right now. I've never attempted to run this in linux, so I'm not certain what your millage will be with that particular application.

Never mind, apparently there is no plus version for linux

I hope this means the next version out will gps support in linux.

This is retarded, if they didn't have a plus version for linux then why did they include a linux link in with my receipt? I hope I get my refund soon.
