Hello H,

I don't know which package could unblack googleearth, I've installed
mesa-utils and using nvidia proprietary drives. I don't know how to
figure out what the package is. Could anyone offer me some help?

mesa-utils and/or dependencies didn't work for me.  I suggest you try
Patrick's suggestion of the nvidia-glx-ia32 packages.

Mesa-utils is not needed - they just allow you to test and check your OpenGL settings - and if you don't have the basic mesa packages installed, they'll pull them in.

There's three way to install Nvidia:-
1. download and build their drivers, which I recommend only for the legacy cards (which I use because I have a large quantity of GeForce2 MX200s) 2. use the Debian non-free drivers - which you've used, they require the nvidia-glx-ia32 packages
3. the nouveau drivers which some people speak highly of

IMNSHO the best guide is:-

“We gotta come to some new ideas about life folks ok? I'm not being blase about abortion, it might be a real issue, it might not, doesn't matter to me. What matters is that if you believe in the sanctity of life then you believe it for life of all ages. That's what I hate about this child-worship syndrome going on. "Save the children! They're killing children! How many children were at Waco? They're killing children!" What does that mean? They reach a certain age and they're off your [beep] love-list? [beep] your children, if that's the way you think then [beep] you too. You either love all people of all ages or you shut the [beep] up.”
