No sound in Crossover 17 oin Ubuntu 17.1

I have just upgraded my PC and switched from a wonderfully working LinuxMint 17.3 install to an Ubuntu 17.1 which works well on my new motherboard and everything is working well, except the sound in Crossover office :(

My new hardware is:
i7 8700K
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO motherboard
ASUS nVidia GeForce 1060
16GB RAM

Ubuntu sound is working really well, detecting my 5.1 sound and working nicely. lspci reports:

But wine doesn't have any drivers installed:
"Driver diagnostics" - "Selected Driver: (None)"

Everything in defualts is "(System Default)"

and there is nothing in speaker configuration.

I have searched on the web but to no avail, please help, I have been stuck at this for hours now :(

I had this same exact problem with a different application, and just learned how to fix it for me, which should hopefully work for you as well. You are probably missing some critical i386 sound-related libraries, as was I. The instructions below are for a 64-bit amd64 system. I'm guessing on a 32-bit system the "i386" isn't needed, but not sure as I have not used 32-bit Linux in years.

First, you may have to go to Terminal and do "sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386" (not sure if that is required, because Crossover installs some i386 libraries as dependencies).

Then, run /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxdiag and look at the output, and it will say which libraries it is missing.

It may say something like, "missing libname.so.1 ..."

You can hunt for the correct library name to install by doing "apt-cache search libname"
That may return something like libname2, libname2-dev and so forth, or it might just be libname (sometimes is), and you would install like so:

sudo apt-get install libname:i386

Hope this helps.

This may also help, which is a partial output from "/opt/cxoffice/bin/cxdiag --debug" showing the libraries I have installed for i386:

Thanks Byron, that was perfect :)

I wish I knew an easier way. Maybe someone else does. Hope that got you fixed up.

It is a bit crazy, and tedious, still it worked, very well thanks. Had to install some of the others that were missing as well.

Good deal.
