I also played around with googleearth a long time and found the following
I use amd64
I didn't get older versions of googleearth to run, they crash at startup.
There are two important configuration options.
The first ist with driconf gui
Disable Low-impact fallback yes
and the second is in xorg.conf
without this option everything is flickering when I move the mouse
Option GlxVisuals" "all"
Hope this can help you
If you need more config options just mail me
