I would have used the GoogleEarth package from the medibuntu repository.
That is a much cleaner way to install the package for Ubuntu. See

OTOH, if you really want to use the downloaded file, open a terminal and
use the command

sh ./GoogleEarth.bin

where I expect you have the file in your home directory. BTW: I didn't
test this, it is from memory because it is looong ago that I used the
donwload version of GE.

This would give you an installation in your home directory and not a
system wide installation, i.e. it only works for the user who installed
the program. If you have multiple users on your machine I would suggest
you use the medibuntu version and install it with your favourite
package manager after you have added the medibuntu repository.
