Installing Google Earth in Ubuntu 16.04

There was a time Linux distros were for nerds. They almost always had to type a bunch of commands to get various things done. But over the years, with the contribution of people all over the world, those days are gone. Now we are able to do almost everything from the graphical interface. But for those who feel more comfortable in terminal windows (count me in), we’ve included command-line installation guide as well.
