Ubuntu: How can you get Google Sketchup running?



Question:

How can you get google sketchup to work on ubuntu?


Solution:1

Google Sketchup is not available natively for Ubuntu, you will have to run it using Wine. The following links may help you to get things going;

Solution:2

Another option to run Sketchup without wine is setting up a Virtual Machine and installing Sketchup on it. Still you might (and probably will) need the registry change that cscarney proposed.

Solution:4

This worked for me:

First install WINE with sudo apt-get install wine

Next, download the SketchUp installer from Google and save it to disk. Open a terminal and run wine /path/to/installer.exe Finish the installer process.

Try running SketchUp (It's on the Applications menu under Wine/Applications). If you get a "Couldn't Intitialize OpenGL" error, run wine regedit.exe and set HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\GLConfig\Display\HW_OK to 1.
