I am trying to install wine (1.3.24) from winehq for fedora and sketchup (8) on a Fedora-15 box. I have tried to follow the Sketchup Sage site http://sites.google.com/site/sketchupsage/problems/linux
After installing Wine and Sketchup, I have Wine Files under the new GNOME-3 Applications and when I open it I get what looks like a Windows window. No Sketchup in there.
I have 2 Sketchup icons on the desktop. One that looks like the windows Sketchup icon, that when clicked, flashes a white screen for a fraction of a second and then does nothing. The Google Sketchup 8.lnk icon does nothing that I can tell.
If I go to a terminal, and enter $wine sketchup, I am told that;
wine: cannot find LC:\\windows\\system32\\sketchup.exe
Sketchup is in /home/dgw/.wine/c_drive/Program Files (x86)/Google/Sketchup8
I have installed winetricks and installed the windows dlls
I think I have looked pretty hard for answers but only find old references for problems. SU 6 or 7 and wine 1.1.x So I think I'm an outlier here for problems with this. I just haven't come up with any ideas on what I'm doing wrong.
Any help or wuggestions would be appreciated.
