Missing or broken libtxc_dxtn library


This library may be needed to run games using textures in the S3TC format.
Nowadays support for S3TC textures should be included in all the graphics drivers though.


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

/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix openglnotextures3tc openglnotextures3tc.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
    Debian : apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386
    Fedora (1) : dnf install libtxc_dxtn
  • For 64-bit Windows applications
    Debian : apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:amd64
    Fedora (1) : dnf install libtxc_dxtn.i686 libtxc_dxtn.x86_64


  • 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) On Fedora it is necessary to add the RPM Fusion repository.
