Using SketchUp in Linux WINE

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


As of this writing, Sketchup 2016 32-bit is the most recent SketchUp version that works, even with WINE 2.

Simply download Sketchup 2016 32-bit and type

wine SketchUpPro-2016-1-1450-80430-en-x86.exe

Notes

To fix error

SketchUp was unable to initialize OpenGL

when trying to use SketchUp under WINE on Linux or Windows,

  1. type regedit
  2. edit the key:

     HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Google/SketchUp8/GLConfig/Display
    

    to have a value of 1.
