Missing or broken libpulse.so.0 library


This library lets Windows applications capture and play audio using the PulseAudio sound system. This is the preferred way to provide audio support on Linux with CrossOver >= 15.


On CrossOver 17 and greater, the simplest solution to fix this issue is to run:
/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix missinglibpulse missinglibpulse.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 libpulse
64-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu lib32-libpulse
Debian : apt-get install libpulse0:i386
32-bit Fedora : yum install pulseaudio-libs.i686
64-bit Fedora : yum install pulseaudio-libs.i686 pulseaudio-libs.x86_64
32-bit openSUSE : zypper install libpulse0
64-bit openSUSE : zypper install libpulse0-32bit
  • For 64-bit Windows applications
Arch Linux : pacman -Syu libpulse
Debian : apt-get install libpulse0:amd64
Fedora : yum install pulseaudio-libs.x86_64
openSUSE : zypper install libpulse0
  • 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.
