Have you tried to purge all config files related to Google Earth? To remove those use the command:
Code: Select all
 sudo dpkg -P [package-name]

After successfully de-installing Google Earth,
You should rename or delete this file:

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth-pro.list

First, rename it (as root-user). This is one single long line:
# mv /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth-pro.list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth-pro.list_DELETE_ME

Then try upgrading the OS, again:
# pkcon refresh

If all goes well:
# pkcon update

Move the renamed …DELETE_ME file somewhere else (HOME directory) or delete it.

How to delete it:
# rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-earth-pro.list_DELETE_ME

One other forum member asked You to tell
which version of the OS You are running.

You get at this information like this:

$ lsb_release -sd; dpkg --print-architecture
KDE neon User Edition 5.14
amd64

Yep,

started to work but then acces denied.
Tried su and was asked for my password. Authentication failure.
Before when Konsole has asked me for a password I used my login Password and it worked.
Seems to be another Password I don't know about.
Funny, I did set the system up myselfe half a year ago. Never used another password.
But the commands you suggested seemed to have worked just fine.
Just can't remove anything because of this password issu when I try to get into root...


thanks,

You have to use sudo, not su.

su requires root's password.

sudo requires Your own.

Try again. Good Luck.

Looks like the system is very confused... Or is it me?

I that Google earth tic is embedded like a virus it might be easier to delete the whole system and start from new.
I got only a few Gigabyte of data on it..

It would be nice though to find a way to get access.

Cheers,

Atmo

After the command prompt
(which is # for root, and $ for for everybody else)
enter ==>
either
sudo -i
or
sudo --login

Both do the same.

Then follow my suggestions. If You want to.

After everything is done,
after the command prompt
(which is now # because You are root)
type ==>
exit

Now Your command-prompt will change back to
non-root, that is back to $.

When You enter the commands, don't
enter the leading $ nor the leading #.

By the way: Did You ever use a command-line before in Your life?

What You have to do here are common procedures
in use since over 40 years at least.

With UNIX, COMMODORE C64, and Windows, too.

The Commandline Manual:

Code: Select all
$ apropos intro | grep ^intro
intro (1)            - introduction to user commands
intro (2)            - introduction to system calls
intro (3)            - introduction to library functions
intro (4)            - introduction to special files
intro (5)            - introduction to file formats and filesystems
intro (6)            - introduction to games
intro (7)            - introduction to overview and miscellany section
intro (8)            - introduction to administration and privileged commands


Start with:
man 1 man

Bacause it's the manual's help-page:

Code: Select all
$ man -s 1 -k '^man$'
man (1)              - an interface to the on-line reference manuals

@NoNameNoBlame Thanks for your posts! You completed the idea that I mentioned in a previous post on this topic. Windows and Mac users are so accustomed to everything being done within a GUI that they are "lost" when trying commands in terminal. Again kudos and thanks!

Thank You very much.

Lots of defenseless victims of brainwashing.
By evil companies, but most of all by computer-"journalism".

Still better than other religions.
Nobody did get murdered because of Choice-of-OS.
As yet…

all this confusion about the command-line, perhaps we should start over and offer gui-based solutions.

If you have either Synaptic or Muon installed I'd suggest opening one of them. From there you can search for the offending package, then right-click -> Remove, followed by hitting the Apply Changes button should proceed to remove the offending package.

If you have neither Synaptic or Muon installed, you can use Discover to install one of them. You could also try using Discover to remove the offending app; though it doesn't support as granular/low-level of package management that Synaptic and Muon provide.

Hey,

thank you all for your input.
Looks like some extremely difficult tasks to accomplish.
I was quite spoiled by Apple OS using spotlight.
But with Linux there doesn't seem to be a program like that.
I guess I try to work with command line again and somehow get it into sudo as described.


Cheers,

Atmo

Erm, we have had something very similar to spotlight in KDE since years, it is by default built into the Plasma desktop. Every time you start searching something using the key combination ALT+F2, the underlying system starts producing results. Try it :-)
