Missing or broken libtiff.so.5 library


This library is needed by some Windows applications that manipulate TIFF images.


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

/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix missinglibtiff5 missinglibtiff5.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 libtiff
    64-bit Arch Linux : pacman -Syu lib32-libtiff
    Debian : apt-get install libtiff5:i386
    32-bit Fedora : yum install libtiff.i686
    64-bit Fedora : yum install libtiff.i686 libtiff.x86_64
    32-bit openSUSE : zypper install libtiff5
    64-bit openSUSE : zypper install libtiff5-32bit
  • For 64-bit Windows applications
    Arch Linux : pacman -Syu libtiff
    Debian : apt-get install libtiff5:amd64
    Fedora : yum install libtiff.x86_64
    openSUSE : zypper install libtiff5


  • cxfix --show-all may have more up-to-date fixes.
  • The ++color:cyan++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.
