Could not install Google Earth due to setup.xml parser error

I try to install Google Earth on Linux Debian 6 Squeeze. I get following error:
./GoogleEarthLinux.bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 5.1.3533.1731...............................................................
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Document is empty
 
^
setup.data/setup.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found
 
^
Couldn't load 'setup.data/setup.xml'
 
No matter whether I start it as normal user or root.

Thank you very much. It works. Installation was ok.
The only trouble is that googleaerth app won't start.
 
$ /usr/local/google-earth/googleearth
./googleearth-bin: ./libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./libgoogleearth_lib.so)
./googleearth-bin: ./libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./libbase.so)
 
I also try to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/local/google-earth. libstdc++.so.6 is located in this directory.
Any idea what could be wrong?

When I try to launch it in Ubuntu 10.04, I get...

and it crashes.
 
Tried the fixes above, plus the one referenced in http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/earth/thread?tid=5e236905e85b494f&hl=en# with no improvement.

If after you follow EAGR instructions you have an error when try to run google earth, try installing the package lsb-core.
 
The complete secuence for install will be (EAGR method plus lsb-core install):
 
./GoogleEarthLinux.bin --target /tmp/ge
cd /tmp/ge/setup.data/bin/Linux/x86/
mv setup.gtk setup.gtk2
cd /tmp/ge
./setup.sh
sudo apt-get install lsb-core
