-------------------------->IS THIS SECTION <BELOW> THE ISSUE???<----------------------------------

==> NOTE1: The binary is called 'google-earth'
==> NOTE2: This package now uses its own font config, effectively skipping the 'faulty' ones.
The following configs can now be reinstalled:
* /etc/fonts/conf.d/65-fonts-persian.conf (owned by 'fontconfig')
* /etc/fonts/infinality/styles.conf.avail/infinality/21-aliases-wine-win7-inf.conf
* /etc/fonts/infinality/styles.conf.avail/infinality/60-group-non-tt-fonts.conf
* /etc/fonts/infinality/styles.conf.avail/infinality/60-group-tt-fonts.conf
(all three owned by 'fontconfig-infinality')
