It took me some time to get it working again, I installed google earth 5, http://earth.google.com/, but the same thing happened, no earth to be found, as root I got an error and that brought me here. So a simple:
sudo mv libcrypto.so.0.9.8 libcrypto.so.0.9.8.old
ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so libcrypto.so.0.9.8
did the job.
