    It’s impossible to run the dpkg-command because of an error:
    “dpkg: Fehler: dpkg-Status-Datenbank ist von einem anderen Prozess gesperrt”
    (dpkg-status-database is blocked by another process).
    Moreover, the direct installation of the deb-package with the help of the Ubuntu-software-center also fails. Obviously it’s impossible to install GoogleEarth!?!

    Google Earth, the latest software application from the Internet giant Google, aims to change all this. One of the main features of this application is that it promises you minutely detailed maps of any location in this world. Even pictures of man-made building, trees, parks, mountains are available, if you so desire, in 3-D. It’s a method of information gathering for any specific location in this world. Google Earth is quite simply, an extraordinary technological feat. At a stroke, it has dominated the cartographical business. All you need is a computer and an Internet connection. Just download the software and you can discover the world from your desktop.’:
