transparency not working for cursor
by dejfson on Monday January 10th 2011, 17:23
I confirm. Transparency of cursor does not work. Tested with _both_ radeon and fglrx drivers, results are the same. Sketchup v.8

Also confirmed. Using radeon driver from GIT (circa Mar '11) and Sketchup 8. Hardware (I think) cursor for menus works fine so it might be a cursor drawing issue.
Problems with Ruby console

The Enter key is not working in ruby console. It worked with previous version. You can type commands into ruby console prompt, but when you press Enter key, nothing happens.
Exported images are black
by Garrett on Wednesday January 20th 2010, 5:14
When I use the "File -> Export -> 2D Graphic..." tool, the images (JPG/BMP/TIF/PNG) are black (actually, only a transparent layer for TIF and PNG). Anyone have any ideas how I could fix this?
I'm running Wine 1.1.31 in Ubuntu 9.1. My graphics card uses an ATI chipset.

I have the same problem, even with nVidia graphics

Same problem with me, both on NVidia and Intel, Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid, Wine 1.1.42.

I only work with 1.1.18 ~ winehq0 ~ ubuntu ~ 9.04-0ubuntu1. With other versions (including 1.1.43-0ubuntu1 ~ lucidppa2) - Black Square on export and printing.

I still have this problem with Wine 1.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 running in VMWare.

I have tried various combinations of Wine versions, linux versions and physical machines - all have the same problem.

Anyone got any more recent ideas on how to solve this?

For some reason, the export feature seems to work with the Pro version of Sketchup, though it does result in the odd crash. Unfortunately Sketchup Pro doesn't work well overall with Wine (the Layout application crashes) so it's not really worth paying for.

Tested Sketch-UP 7.1 today on Wine 1.6.2 and 1.7.30. I can confirm that the 2D export problem has re-appeared on all versions of SketchUp I have (7, 7.1, and 8).

There appears to have been a fix for this problem in Wine 1.5.4 but it has regressed to the old issue some time between that point and 1.6.2.
White box around mouse pointer
by Jimmie Mayfield on Saturday January 2nd 2010, 14:05
Sketchup 7.1.6087
Wine version 1.1.35
proprietary ATI fglrx drivers

Mouse pointer has an opaque white background making it basically impossible to do anything accurately. I have another machine running wine 1.1.32 that does not have this problem. The other machine is using the proprietary nvidia drivers so it's possible that this problem is related to the ATI fglrx drivers...

by Garrett on Tuesday January 19th 2010, 7:58
I see the same problem on my machine running Ubuntu Karmic. I haven't tried it on a machine with nvidia graphics.
Running: Sketchup 7.1.6087; Wine version 1.1.35; ATI fglrx drivers

by michele delbianco on Saturday February 6th 2010, 12:08
forget fglrx working with opengl transparency
the only solution for you is to switch to radeon xorg driver

by a.tom on Saturday May 29th 2010, 12:20
I have the same white box issue with xorg radeon drivers
