Updated Google Earth Stucked at LSB 4.0

There's a new Google Earth release and it's now 6.2. Unfortunately, the same version is not available in Linux and the latest one in Linux is at 6.0.3.2197. I once covered on how to install Google Earth on Slackware and it's working fine up to Version 6.0.2.2074.

Today, i downloaded the latest version and i saw an update there : 6.0.3.2197. I tried to reproduce the same steps i have been using to perform the installation of Google Earth in Linux, but this time, it failed me.
/GoogleEarthLinux.bin --target /tmp/ge
Creating directory /tmp/ge
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
Uncompressing Google Earth for GNU/Linux 6.0.3.2197.............................................................................................
This version of Google Earth requires LSB 4.0 support which you
do not seem to have.

I'm really sure that it was working in the previous version, but unfortunately, it's likely that Google changed it's requirement to have LSB 4.0 as the base
