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
*** 220.127.116.117-r0 0
500 http://dl.google.com/linux/earth/deb/ stable/main i386 Packages
I tried the 7 version & encountered nothing but problems. So I recommend
that you stick with the repo 6.x version.
