can't login to SketchUcation via Sketchup plugin ExtensionSt

Postby mackinlay53 » Thu Dec 24, 2020 3:21 am

I'm trying to open the Sketchucation Extension Store from within Sketchup Make 2017. On a Windows 10 system it works okay, but on my Linux Mint 20 system running Wine 5.0.3 and SU2017, I get a login failure. I have tried both plugin versions of SketchucationTools (ver 3 and 4).

After entering my credentials and clicking log in I get this message: "Some error occurred please contact the administrator at sketcucation.com", and if I click on the gear icon after opening the Extension Store window I get this message: "Not Found
The requested URL /settings.html was not found on this server."

I also tried logging into Sketchucation using Chrome (outside of SU) and it works fine.

So it appears the Extension Store plugin is not finding the server when invoked through the Wine sw layers. However, if I click on the Register button in the ExtensionStore plugin I do get a new page open in my Chrome browser and get prompts to create a new login. So that much is working.

Is there anything you know I can do to fix this failure to login?

Thank you,
...Patrick

Hi
A quick update, I am still having this same login problem.

I am now running Linux Mint 20.1, Wine 6.0, and a fresh installation of Sketchup 2017 Make (64b).

Using the Sketchucation 4.0.0 plugin the button to "Not a member? Register" works correctly, but the "Sign in" button with Sketchucation credentials fails with a message: "Some error occured please contact the administrator at sketcucation.com"

I hope someone can shed light on this problem. I can use the same credentials in a browser to login to Sketchucation, but logging in from inside Sketchup 2017 Make repeatedly fails.

Thank you,
...Patrick

Yup. It just doesn't work. I had similar problems a couple of years ago, and was told that 'linux users are rarer than hen's teeth' (I liked that line). Other side effects are that anything that's licensed via sketchucation is, well, not licensed.

I get around it by running SU in a windows VM, and have always meant to investigate and debug the ruby... but I've not done that yet. Perhaps someday...

Oh, there are also some extensions that are reliant on the browser that won't work. One that comes to mind is cutlist. Oh, and souvenir crashes pretty hard on certain ops.
