Running Sketchup 8 in Wine. Sketchup Unable to initialize OpenGL, Linux

Since I couldn't find any programs in Linux to create 3D models, I decided to install the highly rated SketchUp8 free version using Wine.

Installation went well, but when I went to start SketchUp I encountered the following error. I don't know if this error is to do with my integrated Intel Graphics chip in my laptop, as I don't receive this error on my main PC running an NVidia graphics card with latest Linux drivers.



To resolve this error you need to run regedit and change the following key

+ HKEY_CURRENT_USER
+ Software
+ Google
+ SketchUp8
+ GLConfig
+ Display, then change the key HW_OK to 1
