You can run “Sketchup the 3D modelling software for everyone from Google” in Wine on Ubuntu. In this article I’ll try to explain how to get by the error “Sketchup was unable to initialize OpenGl”.
This error is relatively easy to get by.
- Go to your “Home folder and make sure you see all your hidden files (in Gnome File Browser go to View and select “Show Hidden Files”.
- Go to .wine folder
- Open the file user.reg with notepad or Gedit
- Search for GLConfig
- Change de “HW_OK”=dword:00000000 to “HW_OK”=dword:00000001
- Save the changes you made in the file user.reg
Now you’re ready to start Google Sketchup on Wine
