    Has anyone successfully run google sketchup with wine?

    The attachment is a screen dump of what I get when starting sketchup.

    Works for me with Wine-1.1.8, Intrepid, and a recent Nvidia card.
    See GoogleSketchup - The Official Wine Wiki for how to get past the two problems that keep it from starting up.

    My Update for SketchUp 8.0 and wine 1.2.3.

    The only setting that had to be changed in the registry was in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\GLConf ig\Display the value of HW_OK (change to 1), as was indicated in the Wine-Wiki, linked in the previous posting.

    Since, I can draw all I want. I had no use for the animation-functions. And these following features do not work in my installation under Ubuntu 11.10 64bits:
    • Exporting to avi
    • Exporting to any image-format other than the sketchup file format *.skp
    • Printing to file
    • Printing to paper

    So where I cannot expect that a person has a running installation of SketchUp on her/his own computer, I have to create screen shots from The Gimp, as the Print-key on my keyboard fails. This has probably to do with the emulation, but I do not care much about that.
