I just tried to initialize the SketchUp program but I got the error message saying “SketchUp was unable to initialize OpenGL! Please make sure you have installed the correct drivers for your graphics card”. I tested my graphics drivers and working fine then why a getting this error? Any idea to fix it? Thanks to give it to me.

If you are using an older version of Wine, try opting for the latest one. If the error still appears, try this solution:

  1. From your wine menu.
  2. Open C drive (/home/user/.wine) or where ever you have downloaded the file.
  3. In the Windows Folder, look up for Regedit.exe and run it along with wine.
  4. See HKEY_CURRECT_USERSoftwareGooglesketchup6GLConfigDisplay.
  5. You should be able to fine 3 entries.
  6. Name the bottom one, HW_OK
  7. After double clicking change the data from 0 to 1
  8. You can now run Sketch Up!
