Newbie trying to install.

Hello all,

I am trying to install Crossover in Ubuntu 18.04.01 and I keep getting the following issue when I start Crossover. After entering the sudo password. This message appears.

"Trying with sudo...
[sudo] password for xxxxxxx:
Reading package lists... Done

E: Package 'libnss-mdns:i386' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package python-dbus

Finished. Press Return to continue."

Any help is appreciated. I'm very new to linux, so the more dumbed down the explanation the better. Thank you!

This?

Hi Mike,

You will also need to install python 2.7. You can do this with "sudo apt install python2.7". Ubuntu 17.10+ no longer ships with python 2.7 which CrossOver relies on. We are still in the process of updating our installation to account for this.

Thanks,
Anna

Doesn't look like you have 32 bit support installed to install 32-bit support on Ubuntu (64-bit), open Terminal and copy or type
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
