    Fix - Google Sketchup 6 and Missing OpenGL

    Iv seen quite a few posts that mention the problem with Sketchup 6, where it stops during loading and warns you that you do not have OpenGL available. I had this problem.

    Fix:
    Open your wine menu and open the C drive (/home/user/.Wine)
    Open the Windows Folder
    Find Regedit.exe and run it with Wine
    Find: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\GLConf ig\Display
    There are three entries - Look at the bottom one, name 'HW_OK"
    Double click it and change the data from a 0 to a 1
    Run Sketchup 6
    No more error on startup and the program seems to run just fine on NVIDIA 6600, Ubuntu 7.10

    Good luck

    In my case, this cures Sketchup not starting, but then it froze trying to open the "Instructor" window.

    I fixed it by using Regedit.exe as above to find the "/Google/Sketchup6/SnappyInstructor" key, and changing the "show" entry to 0 (zero).
    Sketchup can then start from the Wine menu entry as normal, and you can turn the Instructor window back on from Sketchup's "Window" menu.

    This was with a fresh download of the latest version of Sketchup from Google, and Wine 0.9.53

    I had something similar, although not a freeze-up, but that was only because I already said 'No' to allowing it to download Gecko. As soon as I allowed that everything worked just fine.

    HOORAY! IS FIXED!

    Only one tiny annoying glitch-bug... my menu-bar and icons (in sketchup) go black, I can mouse over them to spot them but it's annoying.

    HOWEVER! At least the core function of the program is working. *happy dance*

    The more information we have the better we can help. What can you tell us about your WINE setup? How about your video card? What sort of computer?

    Re: Fix - Google Sketchup 6 and Missing OpenGL

    Hi, I had the same problem with my gutsy install and I did the regedit.exe thing but no luck, it wouldn't pop the error any more but the program would die silently. I run it from a terminal and got:

    X Error of failed request: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)
    Major opcode of failed request: 153 (Composite)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 1 ()
    Serial number of failed request: 22
    Current serial number in output stream: 26

    Then I suspected something related to Compiz must be to blame and after I disabled the desktop effects sketchUp started no pb.

    The only problem is that it requests wine to install gecko but the download window that appears does nothing and another problem there is with the cursor, which is framed by a square white rectangleof about 40x40 pixels or so.

    Any ideea on what should we do to make compiz work with sketchUp?

    Thanks.

    I'm having the same issue; Now for what I can see here, you guys seem to be using wine from other repositories than gutsy's (ATM wine is 0.9.46); So please, could you mind pointing me to the repo u r using? Does "that" wine works as gutsy's (that has "Applications"->"wine"->"etc" at the panel) ?

    For general Info: I use standard repos, have a Nv 8800GTS 320, using proprietary Nv driver from restricted modules 100.14.19, winecfg stock (haven't messed around), and yes, OpenGL works like like a charm (compiz, games, etc. Even Half-life & CS & DoD via steam works @ 100%)

    Thx.

    I'm having the same black menu issue as well with my Sketchup - I know I could just go ahead and start drawing but it's going to kill my workflow to not be able to see the menus right off the bat when drawing.

    I'd love to see what it's looking for. Do you think this is an issue with the .NET framework? That is something that the Windows version has as a prerequisite, recall.
