Missing or broken libmpg123.so.0 library


This library is needed by some Windows applications to play MP3 files.


On CrossOver 17 and greater, the simplest solution to fix this issue is to run:

/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix missinglibmpg123 missinglibmpg123.amd64

Or add --show-all to see how CrossOver would fix it on your platform and others.

Alternatively you may try one of the commands below.

  • For 32-bit Windows applications
    32-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu mpg123
    64-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu lib32-mpg123
    Debian : apt-get install libmpg123-0:i386
    32-bit Fedora (1) : dnf install --best mpg123-libs
    64-bit Fedora (1) : dnf install --best mpg123-libs.i686 mpg123-libs.x86_64
    32-bit openSUSE (2) : zypper install libmpg123-0
    64-bit openSUSE (2) : zypper install libmpg123-0-32bit
  • For 64-bit Windows applications
    Arch Linux : pacman -Syu mpg123
    Debian : apt-get install libmpg123-0:amd64
    Fedora (1) : dnf install --best mpg123-libs.x86_64
    openSUSE (2) : zypper install libmpg123-0


  • cxfix --show-all may have more up-to-date fixes.
  • The commands usually also apply to derived distributions. So for instance a fix for Debian is typically also applicable to Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Deepin and Pop! OS. Similarly a fix for Fedora likely also works on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, etc.
  • (1) The mpg123-libs'' package is only available on Fedora 25 / RHEL 7 and greater. However older releases may be able to get the '''libmpg123.i686 package from the third party RPM Fusion Free repository.
  • (2) Older versions of openSUSE may have to get this package from the third-party Packman Essentials repository.
