    Question Google sketchup7 is out

    Sketchup7 is out. And as usual, there's no linux version.
    Has anybody gotten it to work on intrepid? And if so, how?

    I have only gotten it to work using Nvidia drivers, Black screen with ATI.
    After installing with wine,
    Go to /home/YOURNAME/wine/drive_c/windows/regedit.exe
    expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    expand software, google, sketchup, glconfig, display and click HW_OK
    Change the value to 1.
    In wine configuration add SketchUp to applications and set windows version to XP.
    open SU and close the startup windows as quick as possible, may need a reboot.

    I'll try SU 7 today.
    What video card are you using?

    SU 7, (free), seems to work ok in 8.10.
    After doing what I mentioned above I rebooted.
    Upon starting SU, I closed the initial help windows after selecting "do not show on startup", (have to work fast to get this done before Bug Splat).
    Then went to Window, Preferences, OpenGL, then selected what was not default under Capabilities.
    Good luck

    Re: Google sketchup7 is out

    Sketchup 7 is working fine for me once I follow the tips in http://wiki.winehq.org/GoogleSketchup
    but I'm no expert. Can anybody who's having problems
    report them to the wine appdb or bugzilla?
    I'll try to get them fixed, if I can.
    Thanks!

    Re: Google sketchup7 is out

    I have the same problem as Sam. Mine's Kubuntu 8.10, and I have an ATI Radeon Mobility 9600, using the open source Radeon drivers, which give me direct rendering, but slowly. So I'm trying to get ATI's driver going (a whole different issue of course) and hope that will help.

    Sam what's your configuration? And for that matter, what drivers are working?

    Cheers!
