Hi, I am having following long-term issues running Google Earth on Linux (previously Ubuntu, now Manjaro, but with same symptoms).
While accessing password protected remote source of kml data, credentials are not saved even when related checkbox is checked so I have to enter it every time I open it again.
After waking system up from suspended state address search stops working, I can enter any string to editbox but nothing happens after hitting search button. So I have to close and open application, (enter credentials) few times every day.
I anyone have fix for one of these issues it would make me very happy.
Actualy, they are not encrypted. They are just htaccess protected on the server side. Access prompt is shown by Earth.
I think it should be stored to manjaro-keyring and it should be accessible by applications running under normal user. There is no Earth-like entry in keyring.
Clearing config/cache not helping. I have the same behaviour for years on different distros.
Earth is still developed and updated. Chrome version doesn’t support large external KML files so it’s not an option for me.
