You can download the .deb directly from here:

You can also use the google repository (which I prefer):
Follow the instruction under:
3rd Party Repository: Google Earth

For install, the package name is:

$ apt-cache policy google-earth-stable
  Version table:
 *** 0
        500 stable/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I tried the 7 version & encountered nothing but problems. So I recommend
that you stick with the repo 6.x version.
