Arch Linux Crossover Bin run issue

Hi All,
Just installed Arch Linux and having issues with launching Crossover. I have installed all the dependancies but when I launch, I get the following error...


I tried installing the mentioned packages, but they are already installed.

1 root@linuxbox-arch ~ # pacman -Q gtk3
gtk3 1:3.24.34-1
root@linuxbox-arch ~ # pacman -Q vte3
vte3 0.68.0-2

Had it installed in Manjaro just fine - which is an Arch based distro.

Any ideas?

I never used Manjaro or Arch, but I suppose the pop-up error message says you need to install gir-data and recommends that you install vte3

To install gir-data, you should install package gtk3. The instructions are in the page referenced in the error message:

To install vte3, the instructions are in the following page:

Good luck!

@Silvio these instructions don't help.

The cxfix gir-data, and pacman -Syu gtk3 do the same thing - try and install gtk3. Which is already installed. I have the same issue on Arch:

sudo pacman -S gtk3 
[sudo] password for anthony:
**warning: gtk3-1:3.24.34-1 is up to date -- reinstalling**

Note how it says gt3 is up to date.

Same with vte3:

sudo pacman -S vte3
warning: vte3-0.68.0-2 is up to date -- reinstalling

CrossOver doesn't seem to detect that both packages exist and are installed.

Upgrading crossover fixed the problem for me.


I have the same problem with CrossOver 22.0.1, my distribution is Arch Linux
What i have to do?



I have already resolve the problem for myself.
I have just installed python-cairo

pacman -Syu python-cairo
