I'm having some problems registering my version of crossover.
It's working fine on Arch on my PC, but when I try to register it on my laptop, I get the following error:
I've installed it via AUR, but got the same error, then I removed it and reinstalled it via the binary provided on the website under "My Downloads" section.
even if I run xcregister as sudo, the problem persists.
I just tried activating it on yet another installation of Arch Linux and it works. So I guess something is wrong with the laptop's installation.
I'm wondering if the problem was, that I installed it via AUR first and it set some permissions on some files and the purge didn't get rid of them.
But then again, why doesn't root work then.
This is such a mistery.

Just to point out I have the same issue with my system. Except mine is Linux Mint 19.3, Crossover 19.0.0. When I run the "unlock", it prompts for email/password, then a "KDE su" window pops up, but it apparently wants the root password (and as a standard Mint install, there isn't one). I have some KDE tools installed (kceconnect, digikam, etc) mbut not the KDE Desktop.
Even running "sudo /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxregister" still causes it to prompt for the root password. It shows some long command it's trying to run, but the text cannot be selected (otherwise I'd have tried it directly from a command line).
EDIT: let me make a correction on that. Running cxregister with sudo doesn't work (rejects the command as it sees my own .cxoffice dir, which is not owned by root). If I do a "sudo -i" then run the cxregister command, it goes through the same steps, and still looks for the root password through KDEsu.
I could paste a screen clip, but the forum won't let me insert the picture.

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.
