Can't install CrossOver Office

I am using KDE neon LTS 5.8 64 bit which is based on Ubuntu 16.04. I downloaded the Ubuntu deb, clicked on it to open QApt package installer and tried to install. I got the error message: “Cannot satisfy dependencies”. “On 64-bit flavors of Debian and some Ubuntu variants, first open a terminal and run 'sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 ; sudo apt-get update'.” When I do this I get the following: “Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository ' xenial InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'i386”

Is there a way to install CrossOver Office on KDE neon?


I do not run Ubuntu, but had the same problem after a refresh OS install of PCLinuxOS with KDE 5. I did sort of panic as I have a number of
games and applications that used Crossover 16 in the previous install. To solve the dependencies problem I just installed the 64 bit Wine
package. I may not use the generic Wine binaries, but it did install the other required packages. Crossover installed without issue after that.

Hope that helps.

Try this.

echo "foreign-architecture i386" > /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d/multiarch
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386

if that fails try
sudo apt-get install multiarch-support
