Permanently remove updater from Google Earth 5
Authored by: mankoff on Apr 24, '09 05:07:10AM
A simpler way to block it is to do the following:
$ rm -fR ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate
$ rm -fR /Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate
$ sudo touch ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate 
$ sudo touch /Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate
This removes the update directory / folder and replaces it with a file owned by root, which the updater will then not be able to replace.
