CrossOver 20.0.2 VTE issue

I'm trying to have CrossOver install a game and when it gets to the point where it wants to install dependencies and should spawn a terminal it just hangs. From what I can tell it's an issue with VTE 0.62. I'm running PopOS 20.10

Here's the message I get when it hangs.

(crossover:4848): VTE-CRITICAL *: 09:42:05.221: void vte_terminal_spawn_with_fds_async(VteTerminal, VtePtyFlags, const char, const char const, const char const, const int, int, const int, int, GSpawnFlags, GSpawnChildSetupFunc, gpointer, GDestroyNotify, int, GCancellable, VteTerminalSpawnAsyncCallback, gpointer): assertion 'callback' failed

It does appear to be an issue with VTE 62. I compiled version 60 and did the following which gave me the embedded terminal to install the missing dependencies. It did segfault but I was able to start CrossOver like normal after that and finish things.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH VTE_VERSION=6000 /opt/cxoffice/bin/crossover

I don't know what changed in VTE 62 but that's what came with PopOS 20.10.

The final error when it segfaulted from using the above.
/opt/cxoffice/lib/python/ Warning: g_value_get_int: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_INT (value)' failed
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gi/overrides/ Warning: g_object_ref: assertion '!object_already_finalized' failed

Hi there,

This is a known issue, and we have a bug filed to track a fix. In the meantime, you can try following the instructions here to run ./cxfix --auto manually:
