I asked the same question on the AskUbuntu and want to duplicate it here.
I am trying to use SketchUp Web on the Ubuntu 18.04, but have a problem. When the model is bigger than the screen and is moving behind the upper border, the SketchUp hangs. Wayland or X11 doesn’t matter. Although Wayland is more responsive when he hangs. A browser doesn’t matter - Firefox , Chrome , Opera - the same behavior.
Example of the situation, prone to hanging: If I will try to move this model by the
Pan tool or rotate by the
Orbit tool, I will get freezing.
I have found workaround by using Windows 10 in the Virtualbox. The application works fine there. Then I try Ubuntu 18.04 in the Virtualbox - also works fine. Lubuntu 18.04 as well. But if I create the LiveUsb from these
.iso files (I mean Linux distributions) and boot them on the real hardware, I get the same problem.
I have tried another distributions, non-Ubuntu based - Fedora 28 and OpenSuse 15 - no problem is observed. Neither in the VirtualBox, neither on the real hardware.
My assumptions: I think, the cause is the
mesa library and have desire to compile the newer version from the source and test it. But it works on the
Virtualbox , with the Virtualbox’s video driver (
vboxvideo ). And it doesn’t work with the
i915 driver on the real system… What do you think? Do someone have any thoughts about solution of this problem?
