Run SketchUp Make 2015 in Ubuntu 15.10

1. Install wine
2. Download SketchUp Make 2015 Windows 32 Bit from
3. In a terminal
export WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=$HOME/sketchup
# select Windows 7
# run installation
wine SketchUpMake-en.exe
# run SketchUp
wine C:/Program\ Files/SketchUp/SketchUp\ 2015/SketchUp.exe /DisableRubyAPI
Menu crashes the program, so press Ctrl-O to open a file.

I've installed Wine 1.7.44 and the program doesn't crash when selecting File menu.


  1. I can't figure it out from those instructions, or any others I've found. Still working on it. Sure would like to have Sketchup without having to boot my old Win7 machine.
