Sketchup 2013 with wine in linux

Tried to install Sketchup 2013 on Ubuntu Lucid, and it kept complaining about needing to install the Windows Imaging Component.

Downloaded it: 53c18652ac2f8a51303deb48a1b7abbdb1db427f

But it claimed a newer version was already installed. From here I gleaned that I needed to move system32/windowscodecs.dll out of the way first:

Then I was able to install WIC and then Sketchup.
