Crossover installation fails on 17.10


i just tried to install crossover via the terminal with gdebi like it is described on the homepage.
I ran into an error after the installation of all dependencies during the installation of crossover:i386.
The terminal show this:

Entpacken von crossover:i386 (16.2.5-1) ...
crossover:i386 (16.2.5-1) wird eingerichtet ...
/usr/bin/env: »python“: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

I am sorry that the output is in german.
I hope someone as a clue how to fix this.

With kind regards

Hi David,

I had a similar problem with my install. I had to repair my packages, mark Crossover for complete removal and then re-install. This seemed to work in so far as the installation is concerned, including dependencies, however I am still trying to get Crossover itself to work and to appear in the menu.

I hop this is of some help to you.



apt update && apt -f install
That should fix it.

I take it as this is Ubuntu 17.10 ..... I haven't tried it yet as I wanted to install it on a new drive

I get the same error on 17.10:

Any ideas?


NM, I fixed it... Apparently, the new apt-get that comes with Ubuntu 17.10 doesn't detect that python is not install and try to install it. I apt-get installed python3 and it worked without issue.
