No spelling mistake, it is available in squeeze, which I run.

Make a search on nvidia, googleearth, black screen and so on. I found from
ubuntu a bench of files to install that solved the problem. But that computer
is gone by now, and I did not keep trace of what I did. Sorry. If you do not
find anything, come back, I will call the owner of the boxe to know what I did.
But, bassically, googleearth is a 32 bits software, so you need 3é bits lib
from nvidia. That's the general idea.
