[vox-tech] Ubuntu - Google Earth


I have installed Google Earth 6.0xxx on Ubuntu system on old Dell 4500 box. 
Things seem to work but I am unable to resolve one little quirk.
The first time I click on any photo icon a 'Panormio' frame appears as does 
the related photo as one would expect.  After closing image all subsequent 
attempts at displaying a photo image display the outermost frame but the 
image area is transparent showing Google sattelite image.  Is this a but in 
Google Earth??  or do I have something screwed up in various configuration 
settings?  I'm a newbie so please bare with me.

Here are the dumps from some config utilities that I occasionally see 
lspci | grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated 
Graphics Controller (rev 02)
