wow, very old verson of POL ( < 2013) : to upgrade, or (harder, and not recommended) edit the script file locally to decrease the Wine version.

FYI: POL 4.2.12 only support Wine 3.0.3 maximum.

What version POL is needed for Wine-3.6?

dlw1146 Tuesday 23 July 2019 at 3:48

Running Wine 3.6

Download playonlinux-4.2.5.

When installing, an error message reads missing dependencies.

What dependencies are needed to run POL 4.2.5 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS?

Or, what version will run with Wine 3.6?

Dadu042 Tuesday 23 July 2019 at 6:59

For Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, do prefer POL v4.3.4

I don't know. But 4.3.4 should support it.

OK. Play On Linux is running.

However, when trying to open Google Sketchup 8, an error reads no opengl.

Which version of opengl is needed?

I've been able to run sketchUp in the past with PlayOnLinux.

I'm using a desktop with Mint and a dedicated GeForce video card with Nvidia drivers.

Make sure to install the video drivers for your card/chip

Also make sure to use the Wine Manager (Tools, Wine Manager) to download the newest version of Wine.

Even staging versions are really good.


If your system supports Vulkan, you might get really good performance using DXVK and Vulkan to run SketchUp too.  I haven't tested it, but there is a chance this will help with modelling.
