I had to download google earth on a windows box then transfer to my linux box for my first attempt at installing google earth.]

[The winetricks bombed when attempting to install firefox3]. I got firefox3 going and managed to download google earth. Well, technically, google insists I download google updater.

Winetricks isn't meant to be used for every single function, just bits
and pieces to get what you need.

I'd suggest starting in a fresh ~/.wine, filing a bug for each step
that's broken and that winetricks can fix
