Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Drawing, making the program usable.


What does not

The installer ends prematurely, but the program starts, no i didn't worry about that.

 also, the startup screen where you select a template can't be scrolled, so i had to choose one of the three first templates.


What was not tested
import/export, save/load.

HOWTO
  • [bug 14045]: If you get the error "SketchUp was unable to initialize OpenGL!", run regedit, open HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\GLConfig\Display, and change HW_OK to 1.
  •  

  • If you have an nvidia card: you probably need nvidia's proprietary graphics driver. The open-source nv driver isn't good enough yet. (So, on Ubuntu, go to System / Administer / Hardware Drivers, and select the latest proprietary driver. But be sure to turn off Compiz, i.e. go to System / Preferences / Appearance / Visual Effects, and select None.)
  •  

  • If you're having trouble with an older version of Wine, use the latest Wine (currently 1.1.28); you can get it from http://www.winehq.org/download/
  •  

  • [­­bug 16164; fixed as of wine-1.1.11]: If it crashes in the "­Welcome to Sketchup" dialog when you click "Start Using Sketchup", uncheck the box "show at startup".
  •  

  • ­[Bug 16511, fixed as of wine-1.1.11]: To use the Ruby scripts (sketchup.google.com/download/rubyscripts.html) you'll need to convert them from DOS format to Unix format.  (e.g. sudo apt-get install tofromdos; dos2unix -f parametric.rb windows.rb)

It works :)
by Cristiano Orlando on Thursday July 26th 2012, 23:26
I spent a few hours looking for a fix / workaround and really got it working.

It looks like some ruby problems with this script

Go to the Sketchup plugins folder like:
/home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Google/Google SketchUp 8/Plugins

Here i use Sketchup 8, but the problem and fix are the same

Edit vfs.rb
Replace (not working)
if(notfile_loaded?("vfs.rb"))
puts"vfs.rbloaded"
require'sketchup.rb'
require'extensions.rb'

WITH:
puts"vfs.rbloaded"
require'sketchup.rb'
require'extensions.rb'
if(notfile_loaded?("vfs.rb"))

I don't know why the original script was giving this error (i am not a developer) but i found this fix at some message board, and really works good :)

Tested in Ubuntu Lucid with wine 1.1.42
by Pablo Estigarribia on Wednesday May 19th 2010, 21:26
It works very well, but I had 2 issues that I think is important to know how to fix them:

1 - In first time installation with Sketchup 7 setup I got an error message that says I have no Windows Installer? I tried to install windows installer 3.1 and 4.5 but after that installation I got same error message. My Ubuntu installation is an upgrade from 2 or 3 versions before, so I removed all .wine and .winetrick.cache folders from my home directory. After remove .wine: Sketchup Installed successful with new .wine configuration generated automatically!

2 - In first time run of Sketchup 7: I got this error message saying It couldn't found OpenGL, but workarround above fixed it!

Thanks!

Still doesn't export any materials except for COLLADA (Google format).

SketchUp 7 Works
by Jonah Dahlquist on Friday April 30th 2010, 10:25
Google SketchUp 7 works almost perfectly. Window resizing is a bit wonky, but works. Installation was pretty easy. Installed Wine from .deb package (wine1.2_1.1.42-0ubuntu4_amd64.deb). I obviously am running it on Ubuntu (10.04 beta 2) 64-bit.

Got "OpenGL couldn't be initialized" message, but solution above fixed it. Got black screen, but followed instructions at www.ubuntu.com/testing/lucid/alpha2 . Scroll down to "Known Issues and follow the instructions under "Jockey(Ubuntu's restricted driver manager) doesn't..."

The work area is always a bit behind. I have to zoom or orbit after performing an action (like eraser) to see what I did. Selection boxes are persistent, too. It's not much trouble, though.

This is really great!

(NVidia Quadro 1800)

white square cursor instead of transparent

Any news on the "white square" cursor issue? I still haven't found any workaround for this matter.

Sketchup 7.1 on wine 1.2
by f on Tuesday October 6th 2009, 14:54
Seems to work if you disconnect from the internet while starting Sketchup ....

I think the bugsplat is relate to the application trying to get to sketchup.google.com/intl/en/gsu7/learntabpro71.html for the latest help update. If you are not connected at startup then it reads a local file.

Once started you can connect back onto the internet - but it will crash if you try and use the help again.

Sketchup 7.1
by Gerhard Schneider on Wednesday September 23rd 2009, 11:02
Currently, the new version logs me out when I try to start the installer. I have turned off dri and compiz. I will wait a bit and keep my eyes open for solutions.

Was working welll
by Edgar Mesquita on Thursday August 13th 2009, 0:03
I have a Macbook2,1 with the intel graphics and Disabling DRI on Xorg.conf plus no visual effects was working perfectly.

I even managed to work for a full week with no sweat.
I enabled the effects and from then on I have the black draw area.
Tried enabling and disabling DRI and UXA all possible Hardware acceleration and so far no luck!
I'll keep on trying till I get a solution!

Works well out of the box in Wine 1.1.26
by E Peltzer on Sunday July 19th 2009, 17:43
On Ubuntu Jaunty x64, Nvidia binary driver 185.18.14, 9400GT graphic card. Sketchup stopped working for me a few months ago, and I tried some of the fixes here to no avail. I finally just deleted the .wine directory to start over with 1.1.26. That's a bit of a drag as I have about 6 apps I like to run with Wine but about half of them have stopped working. I can't figure out if installing some new Win program screwed things up. It could also be that the latest Nvidia drivers that seem to be constantly updating screwed things up.

Anyway, Sketchup 7 now just works after running the install with no workarounds or downloading msttcorefonts or regedits or anything. Compiz is even running and the app is full screen and can be re-sized. I've not tested it extensively but I drew some stuff, loaded a number of my past models, and even loaded a model from the Google 3D Warehouse online. Display 3D speed seems to be pretty good. Only thing that's wanky is that my keyboard is Dvorak and Sketchup hotkeys are keyed to QWERTY but you enter text and dimensions etc with Dvorak. Maybe a manual remap of the hotkeys could fix it but's it's kind of a pain.

Good progress, at least until the next Wine or driver update screws things up again.

Google SketchUp v.7 on Ubuntu 8.10
by Ivars on Wednesday July 15th 2009, 9:15
Thanks to info provided here it took just one day to get SketchUp v.7 running on
up to date Ubuntu 8.10
Linux-x86_64
NVIDIA Driver Version 180.11 for GeForce 7600 GT video
Wine 1.0.1

SketchUp runs full screen, no glitches on first sight, shadows also are fine. Opens and saves files.

What i had to do is as follows:

Synaptics managed Wine install;
Wine run Google SketchUp installer exe file.

Run regedit and change two registry keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp7\GLConfig\Display]

"HW_OK"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp7\SnappyInstructor]

"show"=dword:00000000

Next, as a current user:
sudo apt-get install cabextract

wget www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sudo chmod +x winetricks

./winetricks corefonts vcrun6

./winetricks dotnet20 #install failed btw ...

NVIDIA X Server Settings manager checked
Antialiasing Settings - Override Application - Off
Anisotropic Filtering - Override Application - 1x

Wine configuration for SketchUp:
Application - SketchUp.exe - WindowsXP
Graphics - Allow window manager to decorate windows - check
Allow window manager to control windows - check
Emulate a virtual desktop, size 1024x768

There is no need to run wine SketchUp.exe --opengl
wine SketchUp.exe is sufficient.

Check what are your International settings when entering manual dimensions fail (decimal and list separators). Look what's on dimension box while you draw e.g. a rectangle.

Black screen
by Johannes Lørup Johnsen on Thursday May 28th 2009, 2:47
After setting snappyinstructor to 0 and HW_OK to 1, I finally got the program running with no crashes. Thanks for that.

What I get now, is a responsive program with menus and buttons that change shading as I roll over them - it works. What I also get is a black screen where I should be able to draw and model. I can press the modelling tools and use them, but I can't see anything. I have an intel GM945 with the proprietary driver, Ubuntu 9.04 and WIne 1.1.22

Has anyone else got this problem?

SketchUp Crashes on Load
by Kyle R Hunt on Saturday March 28th 2009, 21:00
I installed SketchUp 7 on Ubuntu Wine 1.0.1 did the reg fix for OpenGL and was still crashing on launch. No wine error but SketchUp would crash immediately on launch, after disabling the spash screen. changing the Reg Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Google>SketchUp7>SnappyInstructor>Show from 1 to 0 fixed this problem. I now have SketchUp working with Compix.
Hope this helps other people.

RE: Can't run Sketchup
by Dan Kegel on Tuesday December 9th 2008, 22:40
First, please don't post long logs like that. I'm
going to summarize your post here, then delete the original.

-- snip --
When I attempt to run Sketchup on Intrepid Ibex with Wine 1.1.9, I get these errors:

fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT"
err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR80.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Google\\Google SketchUp 7\\gdal12.dll") not found
-- snip --

You might have installed something that disagrees with Wine.
Does the problem happen in a fresh .wine directory?
(i.e. try renaming .wine to .wine.old, reinstall just
Sketchup 7, and see if it still happens.)
