    Hi David. Sorry to disturb you mate.. I’m trying to run Sketchup 2015 through WINE. I can’t find HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Google -> SketchUp version -> GLConfig -> Display in the registry. Why would it be under Google when the system doesn’t belong to Google anymore? Even in the Sketchup registry I can’t find it..

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers mate!

    Awesome! That worked perfectly for Sketchup 2015 on Ubuntu 14.04. Before I used approach with disabling Ruby, but I couldn’t use Dynamic Components. Now I can use extensions. Thanks a lot!

    I’ve followed your instructions to download Sketchup Pro 2014 on my Lubuntu 15.04 laptop and I got this error message “winedbg: Internal crash at 0x7ed2b0a5” at the end of it all. However, I did manage to successfully download Sketchup by manually left-clicking the download package in the file manager and selecting wine windows program loader. I think your advice to use the 32-bit version instead of the 64-bit version really helped me and your instructions for creating the 32-bit prefix was also useful because I wouldn’t have known how to do it myself.

    If you run the installer by right-click and open with wine windows program loader, there is no way to tell it to use the 32-bit prefix. The whole point of creating a 32 bit prefix was to install 32 bit applications in there on a 64 bit system. You have to use the terminal instructions.
