Qt4 Testing

PPA description

Build from the latest Debian sid sources.

I am building these libs to try to fix the blank Panoramio pictures in the latest Google Earth 7.2.1

Do not use it in Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 though as some applications using Qt4 will fail to start e.g. Everpad, CopyQ, Remindor Qt, etc...

The purpose is only to extract the shared libraries used by Google Earth and test them in /opt/google/erath/free/ . It is advised as well to work on a copy of the original files:

$ cd /opt/google/earth
$ sudo cp -a free free.newlibs
$ cd free.newlibs

In /usr/local/share/applications duplicate the application launcher and update it to launch the tested new libs.

$ sudo cp /usr/local/share/applications/google-earth.desktop \

Using $ gksu nautilus (or nemo or any File Manager)
Update the line to Name[en_US]=Google Earth Test (or your locals instead of en_US)
and the line to Exec=/opt/google/earth/free.newlibs/google-earth %f

Then replace the files
libQtCore.so.4,libQtGui.so.4,libQtNetwork.so.4,libQtWebKit.so.4 and the plugins libqjpeg.so,libqgif.so
