Change bottle location

Currently, the default behaviour of the crossover pro rpm is to create new bottles in the users home directory. I'd like it to create the bottle locally. How and where do I change it?

You can control the list of directories where CrossOver looks for bottles by setting the CX_BOTTLE_PATH environment variable. By default this variable is set to ~/.cxoffice. To not have to set the modified path manually each time you run CrossOver, edit ~/.cxoffice/cxoffice.conf and add the following lines:


CrossOver will then first look for bottles in /extra/bottles and then in the standard location. Also note that CrossOver will create new bottles in the first writable directory present in the search path. So order is important.
