What works

When installing, SketchUp Pro 2018 needs to install Microsoft .NET 4.5 but it fails. This can be solved by previously installing .NET 4.7 (using the offline installer; after that installation proceeds as expected.

What does not

  • When using the Selection tool by dragging to select the elements on an area, the window sometimes turns black (only the model viewing area).
  • After opening a .skb file, saving throws the following exception: CFileException 0 in Z:\home\user\Documents\SketchUp\new-project.skp

    • However, if one saves the project into a new file using the Save As... option, the error doesn't show anymore and one can keep re-saving the file.
    • The issue persists after closing the project. It would seem that only files "Saved As..." on the current session are writable by SketchUp.


Microsoft .NET 4.7 should be installed (tested using the offline installer) before installing SketchUp Pro 2018.

What was not tested

Extensions and Trimble Connect.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

To reproduce the steps for the installation are the following:

# Set up WINEPREFIX for a 64bit-environment:

$ export WINEARCH=win64
$ export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-sketchup

Doesn't launch with multi-monitor
by Piranha Phish on Friday May 31st 2019, 11:20
After successful installation, I had only been able to get it to launch occasionally and struggled to determine the cause. I finally came across the following post that indicated a native issue with SketchUp on a multi-monitor setup related to primary display selection:


That's when I realized it was only when my laptop was docked (with external monitors) that it would not launch. If I launch SketchUp while undocked it will open fine, then I can dock and it continues to work fine on any of the docked, external monitors at that point.

Does Wine have a concept of a primary monitor? Can I change it?

Your comment helped me to understand why sketchup runs fine on my laptop (single monitor) but not on my desktop (multi monitor). After some tries I figured out that enabling the virtual desktop in winecfg workarounds the issue. Sketchup starts successfully this way (but I did not yet tried to extensively use it)

Thank you for your useful comment, I hope that mine will help you as well.
Dynamic components and other Web Dialogs
by FloBEAUG on Monday May 20th 2019, 6:54

I have installed Sketchup 2018 on my Linux Mint 19.1. with wine-staging 4.8., .Net4.7 and VCRun14.
The main program works fine but the dynamic components windows aren't displaying correctly (white window).

Do you know if there is a way to fix this ?
Saw a very old blog : but this is not working because Sketchup asks for .NET during installation.


PS : Sketchup 2019 launches but I got an instant bugsplat when starting modeling. But this is another problem ;-)
Probar Sketchup 2019 en Ubuntu 18.10
by Jorge on Friday February 15th 2019, 22:45
Muy buenas a todos.
Tengo conocimientos bastante básicos sobre estos temas,
pero siguiendo los pasos que indican acá:
podía instalar sin problemas Sketchup 2017 y 2018 en Ubuntu 18.04 y 18.10.
Sketchup funcionaba perfecto
Style Builder se abría pero con algunos errores y
Layout no funcionaba nada.
Pero ahora intento hacer lo mismo con Sketchup 2019 y aparentemente se instala correcto pero como en esta nueva versión pide iniciar sesión antes de abrir el programa parece que existe algún problema para conectarse a internet y se cierra la ventana de "iniciar sesión".
Agradecería mucho si alguien tiene alguna idea de cómo solucionar ese inconveniente.

Very good to everyone.
I have quite basic knowledge on these subjects,
but following the steps indicated here:
I could install Sketchup 2017 and 2018 without problems in Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10.
Sketchup worked perfect
Style Builder opened but with some errors and
Layout did not work at all.
But now I try to do the same with Sketchup 2019 and apparently it is installed correctly but since in this new version it asks to log in before opening the program it seems that there is some problem to connect to the internet and the "login" window closes.
I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any idea how to fix that inconvenience.
One input behind bug
by FloBEAUG on Sunday November 11th 2018, 11:43

I am have the old time "one input behind" or "update lag" bug...
System : Linux Mint 19
Kernel : 4.17
GPU : GTX 970
Driver : NVIDIA 410.73
Wine : staging-3.20

Tried the old vblank_mode=0 solution which never disables vsync if I trust the NVIDIA Graphics Visual API Indicator --> blit (red), vsync (green) in Sketchup window.
Even if I uncheck the "enable vsync" in NVIDIA Settings, it seems to be still activated in Sketchup.

The only solution that works is to switch to the "nouveau driver"... But for me it is not a real solution as I'm not able to play games that require Vulkan to work.

Did someone found a real solution for this bug yet ?

Regarding saving exception error.
by Alfredo Hernández on Thursday October 11th 2018, 23:58
Doing more tests, I realised that the exception error only happens when the .skp files are open from the file manager. If you open SketchUp and open files from there, everything works as expected.
