SketchUp v8 + wine 1.3.34


The previous version of SketchUp had .Net framework crap that I couldn't get around with wine.

Version 8 installs and works very well.

However, I am unable to type into the program after using it for a while. Example: manual measurements, tool short-cut keys, ect. I just save and restart SketchUp, not a real problem. Trying to pay attention to when it happens...

I'm curious if anyone has any tips/fixes/experience with SketchUp8+wine.

Some apps work with wine tricks installed but you have to watch out for it breaking updates.

Seem to be gold on Fedora 16 from the link.

sketchup on Opensuse 11.3

I found under sketchup that it should install well using Winetricks to do the install. Made the mistake of installing first without winetricks, believe I deleted everything and then installed with Winetricks. The start up comes onto the screen and then I obtain the error message: Sketchup unable to initialize OpenGl! Error: ChoosePixelFormat failed. Question - should the link setup for Google Sketchup enable operations under Wine? Should I try to start a Wine window first and then start Sketchup from there? I almost suspect that this is a Wine setup issue not a Sketchup issue, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Update. Tried a few other things. Here is the error I am getting.
