recently, I installed CrossOver Pro on OpenSuSE Linux 11.4 in order to get MyPhoneExplorer to run. It didn't start, so i decided to install serveral runtime components to see if it will work then. I assumed that it only affects the specified bottle.
But since then, there is sometimes a popup saying that pluginserver.exe fails to load. Probably correspondig to this, my Firefox (Linux!) won't play any Youtube videos. I guess it is because anything in firefox's add-on management got confused by this. Renamimg /opt/cxoffice/lib/wine/pluginserver.exe.so did not fix it.
Does anybody have a clue what could went wrong, and how I can get
this suggestion would be a drastic move as far as your current firefox configuration goes, since you would be blasting it all away, but you could try (as a last resort) purging firefox, then reinstalling firefox fresh from scratch. in terminal enter this command string:
sudo apt-get purge firefox (ready, aim, fire!)
if you do decide to take the plunge, it would be a good idea to backup your current firefox bookmarks file away somewhere(bookmarks....json file). also jot down the names of all of the add-ons you currently have installed.
...somewhat distantly related, this happened to me last week on the Debian6
here, but the caveats are that I was using a tip build (nightly) and I use the
.bin installer (I'm the only user of the machine). What worked in that case
was simply blowing away the cxoffice installation (rm -fr ~/cxoffice), and then
reinstalling crossover (but not a tip build, latest current instead) ; this
fixed the issue. I must admit I should've looked at the actual -cause- of it
all, but didn't (I'm used to tip builds being wild and untamed =), and I'm
somewhat surprised the issue manifest itself with the current release...curious...

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
