.Net installation takes “forever”
by Michael Uplawski on Saturday October 4th 2014, 3:13
Good morning all,

launching the installation with wine under Debian 64bits, I am confronted with the installation dialog who tells me that the Microsoft .Net Franework 4 is about to be installed.

How long should this take usually?

I had to interrupt the process twice during day-time and did not see it terminate after a nightly session.
Several Windows-applications work well with my wine-1.6.2 and I do not accept an answer which claims nothing but incompatibility of this very wine version with the .Net Framework 4.., or rather take it as a way to express incompatibility between Sketchup and myself. ;-)

I have used Sketchup 8 and 2013 for a long time. Currently, there is no other version of the program installed on this PC and also no version of the .Net framework nor Mono.

Thank you in advance.

It may help if remove/move the existing Wine folder (where wine install stuff in the home directory - in the hidden folder "~/.wine"), removing any existing problems. You can then install windows .net using the Winetricks: by running `winetricks wininet`.

Also, I have created a simple bash script to install Sketchup 8, and have uploaded a copy here: - I used a old version of it (using winetricks) to install on a Debain Wheezy system, so it may work for your system

Note you may be able to get a better solution by posting on a forum/question and answer site - I can recommend Unix & Linux: . You can ask there if you have more questions or problems.

Thank you Wilf,

removing the .wine folder has helped me a long time ago, as I remember now, to get over a similar problem with different software. Without knowing the result I deem this a valuable hint.

As regards stackexchange, you are probably right, too. The choice of a discussion forum is however influenced by many things. I often consult stackexchange, but tend to give my support to a variety of services and systems, rather than to any kind of centralization, be it planned, wanted or just “grown” or purely accidental.

The wine-site has this sympathetic streak of being populated by laymen of all kinds... Nothing prevents me to look-up other solutions elsewhere... ;-)


Ruby extensions/plugins
by Kelly Morning on Sunday July 13th 2014, 10:12
For all those who don't have plugins working, this is how I fixed it.

Run 'winetricks -q vcrun6', then from winecfg-->Libraries add 'msvcrt' override and set to native.

After doing this, I wasn't able to add extensions through the preference menu, but was able to add them manually into the Plugins directory and have them work. However, I ran into a problem with the stl extension where the stl export option windows didn't show anything and could not continue on from there.

I was able to fix by running "winetricks ie6" (using a 32 bit wineprefix). I think this is because it provides an override for "mshtml". Installing ie6 also seemed to fix installing extensions from the preferences window.

What still doesn't work for me:

File-->3D Warehouse-->Get Models
I get "fixme:wininet:InternetSetOptionW INTERNET_OPTION_SEND/RECEIVE_TIMEOUT/DATA_SEND_TIMEOUT 8000" in debug.
Same for Extension Warehouse.

Ruby Console shows only black when entering input. Commands do work if you can successfully enter them blindly.

winetricks riched20

Select Windows 7

"Run 'winetricks -q vcrun6', then from winecfg-->Libraries add 'msvcrt' override and set to native. "

And installed :
winetricks dotnet40
winetricks gdiplus
winetricks comctl32
winetricks riched20
winetricks wininet

After this I was able to load plugin from preference menu.
But unable to connect internet to get models or plugins.

All times at startup this link opens twice in my browser. Downgrading to IE6 did not solved issue on my current prefix. Creating another prefix with same steps and ie6 solved issue but now nothing displayed in "learn" section of welcome screen but it doesn't matter.
Crashed for me until I did this
by David on Saturday July 12th 2014, 16:09
It crashed for me. For another software, I did the following, and found out Sketchup 2014 now works. Ubuntu 14.04 amd64 with wine 1.7.21

sudo apt-get install winetricks

# I'm on 64bits
export WINEARCH=win32

winetricks dotnet40
winetricks gdiplus
winetricks comctl32 ie8
work around if sketchup 2014 won't install
by revdjenk on Saturday May 17th 2014, 0:26
If Sketchup 2014 won't even complete the install process in your favorite Linux distro, indicating that one needs Microsoft Windows... then last post in this thread holds one easy key to get it fixed.

Then use Joshua's workaround (above) in terminal to open Sketchup 2014 properly. So far all tools and fill colors and patterns all work.
by Joshua on Wednesday April 2nd 2014, 22:25
To get Sketchup to start I had to run it using "/DisableRubyAPI":

wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\SketchUp.exe" "/DisableRubyAPI"

This next workaround may be more system specific, but a number of rendering bugs were fixed by running Sketchup with "LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1":

env WINEPREFIX="/home/joshua/.wine" WINEDEBUG="fixme-all" LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1 wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\SketchUp\SketchUp 2014\SketchUp.exe" "/DisableRubyAPI"
RE: Workarounds

Great! This works for me very good thank you! I get a couple of error messages "There is no Windows program configured to open this type of file", but I can just click 'OK' and it all works fine. (Graphics are noticeably smoother that SketchUp 2013, esp. with shadows) Exports jpegs fine. Plugins not working - I presume this is because of disabling Ruby API?
RE: Workarounds
by Albert Riedinger on Saturday May 17th 2014, 4:53
Thank you for your workarounds!
Any chance to get Ruby API to work?
RE: Workarounds
by Xiao Shi Zi on Thursday June 5th 2014, 15:11
Workaround is working ok.
How can you install an extension thru peferences when "/DisableRubyAPI" option added to the command line?
like the stl plugin sketchup-stl.rb?

RE: Workarounds
by Joshua on Thursday June 5th 2014, 16:00
Unfortunately, disabling the ruby API will also disable plugins.

In the end, due to some graphics glitches I ended up having to pull out an ancient XP laptop to use Sketchup on.
