[solved] Windows Program not starting
xacameheni
Posted 2015-03-24 08:28
Hello,
I user MS Office 07 in Crossover 12.5 and it works fine. Now I wanted to user it on my other PC. I exported it as an cxarchiv-File and imported that archive on my Laptop where I installed Crossover 14. Then it works there very well. But I had to downgrade on my second PC to 12.5 because I don't own a license for 14 but on my second PC Office does not start. I just get the error:
Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Unknown error (127).


Can you help me and explain why it does not work on my second PC with the same Version of Crossover?

Are you using Linux on both computers, or is/are one or both of them a mac?

I recommend to delete the bottle and re-import the archive using CrossOver 12.5. We don't test bottle downgrades thoroughly, it's quite possible that CrossOver 14 set a registry key that breaks CrossOver 12.5.

I am using archlinux on both computers. One is 32bit the other 64bit. I already tried to uninstall and delete the bottle then do a clean 12.5 install and import the archive but I always get the same error.

Which one is it not working on? Also, can we see the output of:

/opt/cxoffice/bin/cxdiag


or

~/cxoffice/bin/cxdiag


The above depends on how you installed CrossOver.

Not working is the 64bit System. Looks like I have to install this missing libs? Does Crossover 14 does not need them any more or why is it working?

For 64bit machines, you will need to enable multilib for archlinux in your /etc/pacman.conf by uncommenting the following lines near the bottom of the file.
[multilib]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist


The following will need to be installed to compile some of the dependencies which are only available from AUR
pacman -S [--noconfirm] base-devel


As a user, I would suggest installing yaourt from AUR, as some of the dependencies needed by crossover are only available in AUR, and yaourt usually does a wonderful job of handling the download, compile, and installation of those dependencies.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/yaourt/
(dependency) https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/package-query/

If you install the user made crossover package from AUR, the majority of needed the needed dependencies will shown. Also, yaourt can handle the installation all of them for you.
yaourt -S [--noconfirm] crossover


Otherwise, you will need to make sure the following packages are installed.
yaourt -S [--noconfirm] python2 glibc libice libsm libx11 libxext libxi freetype2 libpng zlib lcms2 alsa-lib libgl libxcursor libxrandr desktop-file-utils gstreamer0.10 mpg123 libgphoto2 libexif openal libcl pygtk python2-dbus libxinerama sane gnutls libcups libxcomposite libxslt v4l-utils gstreamer0.10-base libxxf86dga libxxf86vm glu python2 lib32-glibc lib32-libice lib32-libsm lib32-libx11 lib32-libxext lib32-libxi lib32-freetype2 lib32-libpng lib32-zlib lib32-lcms2 lib32-alsa-lib lib32-libgl lib32-libxcursor lib32-libxrandr desktop-file-utils lib32-gstreamer0.10 lib32-mpg123 lib32-libgphoto2 lib32-libexif lib32-openal lib32-libcl pygtk python2-dbus lib32-libxinerama lib32-sane lib32-gnutls lib32-libcups lib32-libxcomposite lib32-libxslt lib32-v4l-utils lib32-gstreamer0.10-base lib32-libxxf86dga lib32-libxxf86vm lib32-glu

Thank you. I will try it. I am just wondering that crossover 14 does not need those libs. Do you have any explanation for that?
William Overstreet
Posted 2015-03-24 13:59
I do not understand, could you rephrase your query?

When I install crossover 14 it works without installing the packages you listed. Why does crossover 12.5 need the packages to start a windows program?

Edit: I just installed the packages that were required (not the recommend or suggested one; see the log file above) and now office starts. So there is no need to install things from the AUR. Perhaps the newer version of crossover uses the 64bit libs?

Last I saw, 14 was pretty adamant about installing missing dependencies, even on Archlinux.

The other is, I don't see any kind of error log, so missing dependencies might not be the issue, only the most likely at this point based on the given information.

Thank you for your help. The problem is solved know. Perhaps someone can mark the thread as solved, I don't know how to do that.
To sum up the solution was to run the cxdiag program and check its output. It says what packages are really required (the 64bit versions of that packages are mostly installed, so it is necessary to install the lib32* ones) so at least that packages should be installed.

With this resolved and because several experts are here, we've added content to our Arch linux page.

I would highly appreciate your eyes on this page:

Is there anything we can add or polish that would be helpful?

You might mention that Crossover is in the AUR, and installing from the AUR will also pull the librairies needed, if the multilib is enabled. It will result with a system-wide installation that pacman is aware of, sort of like a installation with a deb or rpm.
