Crossover 15.0 won't install on Kubuntu 15.10 (Wily) - can't resolve dependencies in any sensible way

Here's what happens trying to install. All packages already on the system are up-to-date. Kubuntu with Plasma 5 etc.

walter@rukbat:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i crossover_15.0.1-1.deb

If I try sudo aptitude install to look for the dependences, it first offers a couple of times to fix it by REMOVING crossover, then suggests removing 260-odd packages (including all of KDE, LibreOffice and X server). I gave up after about 10 different scenarios. Needless to say, not going down any of those paths.

Just paid for this, mostly to support you guys rather than any real need (but hoping to improve on Wine experience). But as another thread title said, dead on arrival.

Any suggestions ?

Try use : sudo apt-get install -f

For the past few ubuntu releases, I've had to install the wine package in addition to CO.

Install 32bits libraries

you could also try the generic command-line installer. .
