How can I build debian packae from googleearth-package?
Good evening.
Some minutes ago I searched Google Earth in synaptic package manager.

I found:
googleearth-package 1.2.2

describing text:
utility to automatically build a Debian package of Google Earth
Google Earth is a 3D planet viewer that lets you interactively navigate
satellite imagery, maps, terrain, and so forth.

Google Earth is available for GNU/Linux from their web site, but is
non-free software and is undistributable. It also does not integrate
well into a Debian system.

This utility makes it possible to build your own personal Debian
package of Google Earth. The packaging itself is Free Software, but
the Google Earth program is governed by the copyright holder (Google),
so you may be limited as to what you can do with the resulting
package (i.e. no redistribution, etc). This package will simply help
you create the package, it is your responsibility to use the resulting
package responsibly.

Its download resulted in:
Downloaded file:

by extracting I got these files:

How can I build Google Earth from these files?

Are you aware of different CPU architectures and what this implies regrading binary compatibility? If not maybe you want to read up on that first.
You should be able to run Google Earth under Android OS on the tinkerboard though
Good evening, Mikerr.
Thank you very much for your reference to Android.

My problem is that I have installed several tools and programs for navigation on a sailing yacht on your modified TinkerOS 2.0.8.
The version you modified is great, by the way!
At this point many thanks again for all your efforts to the Tinker Board.

Some of these tools and programs don't exist for Android (or I haven't found them yet,-)

So it would be better if I could find a way to install Chrome and/or Google Earth with your help or other forum members.
