Missing libasound library


Wine can use this library in order to let Windows applications play sounds using the Alsa sound system.
However nowadays Linux distributions use PulseAudio instead so if you have CrossOver 15 or greater you should look make sure you have libpulse instead.


To install this library with CrossOver 20, run:
cxoffice/bin/cxfix missinglibasound missinglibasound.amd64
Or add --show to see how CrossOver would install it on your platform and others:

    32-bit Debian or Ubuntu : apt-get install libasound2 libasound2-plugins
    64-bit Debian or Ubuntu : apt-get install libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386
    32/64-bit Fedora : dnf install alsa-lib.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
    32/64-bit Mandriva : urpmi libalsa2
    32-bit SUSE : zypper install libasound2
    64-bit SUSE : zypper install libasound2-32bit
    32-bit Arch : pacman -Syu alsa-lib alsa-plugins
    64-bit Arch : pacman -Syu lib32-alsa-lib lib32-alsa-plugins

  • libasound2-plugins is not necessary but it does make CrossOver and other native apps play nicely together
