You can use the 8.0 VM:
Run it on your computer or on VirtualBox or VMWare.
It's based on Ubuntu Trusty.
Included with the distribution is Marble 1.8. We'd like to see Marble for KDE 4.14 there.

Fix various crashes\issues related to Tours
Fix crash while creating tour.
Fix flyTo functionality. Now it remembers altitude.
Fix issues related to wrong tour duration handling.
Fix handling of the end of Tour playback.
Create a backport for Ubuntu Trusty. This backport must at least include the patches above.
You can verify this by doing the following steps on the OSGeo install with your newly-built packages applied:
- Enabling the Flicker photo plugin via View->Online Services->Photo should display photos. Please create a screenshot of this feature working with your OSGeo install as a proof.
- Creating a new Tour via the Tour panel, saving and loading it should work without crashes.
