osgEarth: quickstart example doesn't work

Description

Hi,

if you follow the steps in the osgEarth quickstart,

export OSG_FILE_PATH=/usr/share/osgearth
osgearth_viewer --window 50 50 900 700 /usr/share/osgearth/maps/srtm.earth

it gives an error about Warning: could not find plugin to load objects from file "50" then [osgearth] Unable to load earth model. and the usage text before returning to the command prompt.

ps- we can put that export line in /etc/profile.d/osgEarth.sh if you like, then add the demo viewer as a menu item..

ok, the osgearth-data was suggested but not installed. installing it fixes the error, but not the warnings (but I don't know if that matters)

also I had to modify the install script to pull in the openscenegraph package to get the osgviewer program.
