What is that ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin? Is it something downloaded from 
Google? Then it is probably a script to run like this:

sh ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

or maybe 

sudo sh ./GoogleEarthLinux.bin

But I'm not sure if that is a good idea because that probably wouldn't 
install it as a package in the package database. I think it would be 
better to install the package from the Ubuntu repository:

sudo apt-get install googleearth-package
