As of version 15.0, CrossOver no longer uses this library. This article left in place for reference only.
This library is needed by some Windows applications that manipulate TIFF images.
As of 15.0 CrossOver uses a newer version of this library. See theMissing libtiff.so.5 librarypage. Current Linux distributions only provide newer versions of this library which cannot be used by older CrossOver versions.
On CrossOver 17 and greater, the simplest solution to fix this issue is to run:
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 Debian : apt-get install libtiff4:i386
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.
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.
