Skechup needs to be installed.

Any help appreciated. See attached

This is as far as POL goes. Either choice stops POL.

You can manually install SketchUp 8 with PlayOnLinux manual installation.  Download SketchUp, save to your desktop.

  • Open PlayOnLinux
  • Click Install
  • Click "install a non-listed program"

Follow the instructions for creating a new virtual drive, Wine configuration and version of Wine.  I recommend downloading Wine 5.0 32-bit & 64-bit from the Wine Manager first.  Also make sure you are using PlayOnLinux 4.3.4

When you get to the package installation, I would install the following:

  • corefonts
  • d3dx9
  • d3dx10
  • d3dx11
  • tahoma
  • dotnet45


The one critical library you need is Dot Net Framework 4.5.2 which may or may not install.  I'm not sure if it will work in a 64-bit Wine, but you can try.  


I should probably give this a try myself, but I've been using the web version which works GREAT!
