Install Error message and hangup when putting CrossOver 9.2 on Ubuntu 10.10
Posted 2011-01-04 01:09
As I attempt to install the:

Crossover Linux Standard 9.2.0 (32bit Debian and Ubuntu) package

I am encountering the following message:

"Error: Breaks existing package 'crossover-standard-demo' that conflict: 'cxoffice5'. But the '/tmp/crossover-standard_9.2.0-i386.deb' provides it via: 'cxoffice5'"

This message is displayed when I use both the GDebi 0.6.3ubuntu1 package installer; as well as, the Ubuntu Software Center Installer.  

For the record my current distribution and kernel are:

Release 10.10 (maverick)
Kernel Linux 2.6.35-24

I had been able to use CrossOver Linux Standard 9.0.1 on the same physical machine, but it ran on Ubuntu 10.4.  Everything broke when I updated to Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick) a few days ago.  The CrossOver version 9.0.1 is still on my system.

The installation process for CrossOver 9.2.0-1 is stuck at this point, as I have been unable to find any reference to this problem either through Google, or in searching this forum.

I am seeking any guidance, insight or (worst case) consolation that any consoling insightful guide may care to offer.

CrossOver successfuly installed without any fuss following the terminal command: dpkg -i /tmp/crossover-standard_9.2.0-i386.deb

Thank you!!

Had the exact same issue: Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit and CrossOver Office Pro 9.2.0-1 64 bit

Too bad I removed the CrossOver Office standard before I tried this :S Lucky me I made a backup of the bottle using the bottle manager, restoring was easy!

Ow to be more complete: sudo dpkg -i ia32-crossover-pro_9.2.0-1_amd64.deb

did the trick :D
