Recently, my old chromebook was stolen and so I bought a newer one. I followed instructions on the web to install Libreoffice using a deb file and Firefox using Flatpak.
I had to do updates to install the the applications which also changed the version of Python to a version newer than the Python required by Crossover Chromebook. So after working with Vince at CrossOver Support, I deleted Libreoffice and the Flatpak Firefox and started over with a new install of Linux.
Crossover Chromebook installed easily this time. Unfortunately, both Libreoffice and Firefox are not supported by Crossover. The installations both failed or failed to complete.
I'm not sure which it was that changed the version of Python. Was it me using the Libreoffice deb installation or was it from using Flatpak? I suspect Flatpak, but I'm not quite sure.
Since my two year older Chromebook was stolen, I cannot check to see if my installing Libreoffice using a deb was the cause of my problems. I've gotten things working for me using an older Libreoffice installed via Crossover Chromebook and an older Firefox for a website that requires Opera or Firefox.
The current Cossover Chromebook has a problem with newer Python versions, so I'll hope than a future version will help me out.
This bump in the road does preclude my switching over to a Chromebox to replace my Linux desktop soon. I'll keep an eye out on what develops.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
