I think things are getting mixed up here:
some of you obviously needed to rename/delete "/usr/lib/googleearth/libssl.so.0.9.8" to make GE work. In my originally reported bug it was the other way round: Ubuntu's "googleearth-package" built a package where "/usr/lib/googleearth/libssl.so.0.9.8" was already renamed to "/usr/lib/googleearth/libssl.so.0.9.8.removed-by-installer". With this setup on Ubuntu Intrepid AMD64 the above mentioned error appeared and GE refused to start. Renaming "/usr/lib/googleearth/libssl.so.0.9.8.removed-by-installer" to "/usr/lib/googleearth/libssl.so.0.9.8" solved my problem.
So, wijit, Nick Hall, chappejw and sojourner seem to have another problem. I guess it would be interesting which version of Google Earth you are running and did you use googleearth-package to build a Debian package? I know this is a problem with GE itself, but googleearth-package provided a fix which - at least in my case - would not be necessary any more.
