Using SketchUp 8 in Linux WINE

Note: You can instead simply use my.SketchUp, which is a cloud/web browser based SketchUp without the procedure below.

You will possibly get error

SketchUp was unable to initialize OpenGL

when trying to use SketchUp 8 under WINE on Linux.

To fix this OpenGL error for SketchUp8 on MS Windows or Linux with WINE, type

regedit 

and then edit the key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Google/SketchUp8/GLConfig/Display

to have a value of 1.
