Dear Technical People

I am trying to install version 14 over version 13.2.0

I downloaded the latest version
1) wget http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.deb

Then
2) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
no output after entering the password

Then
3) sudo apt-get update
output

Then
4) sudo dpkg -i crossover.deb
Output

Then
5) Crossover did not start

Then
6) When I start Crossover it is still version 13.2.0

Any help appreciated

How did you install 13.2.0? DId you use the .deb package?

What does this command return?
apt-cache policy crossover


What version does crossover indicate if you start it like this?
 /opt/cxoffice/bin/crossover

Dear Silviu

Thanks for your reply

1) Yes I believe I did use the .deb package install 13.2.0

2) The output of "apt-cache policy crossover" is
stephanos@Lenovo-3000-N200:~$ apt-cache policy crossover
crossover:
 Installed: 14.1.4-1
 Candidate: 14.1.4-1
 Version table:
*** 14.1.4-1 0
       100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
stephanos@Lenovo-3000-N200:~$

3) When I type "/opt/cxoffice/bin/crossover" it starts crossover and Help > About reveals it is version 14.1.4

4) The previous version, which is in the menu has this command:
 /home/stephanos/cxoffice/bin/crossover %u
which starts the earlier version

5) So the conclusion is I have installed version 14.1.4

6)  I have made a new menu entry for 14

Thank you for your assistance

Cool. It looks like you installed the previous version using the universal installer not the .deb package. That's why it ended up in your $HOME.

Dear Silviu

Thanks for that.  My preference is to use the .deb package in the future.  Any tips on how to remove the earlier version?

As I recall there is an "Uninstall CrossOver" option but I also recall me saying some rather not nice things about it because I believe it wipes the bottles as well. I do not recall whether it prompts about the bottle deletion or not. Probably not and that's why I had some less nice words about it.

The "manual" way is to remove the directory it was installed and make the menu entries point to the correct paths.
