Missing or broken 32-bit libxcb.so.1 library

As of version 15.0, CrossOver no longer uses this library. This article left in place for reference only.


Wine needs this library in order for Windows applications to bring up a graphical user interface. In other words, without it Windows applications will not work.


CrossOver 12 to 14 shipped its own libxcb library so you can normally ignore this issue, even if cxdiag reports it when run manually. You should not be getting this warning from CrossOver's GUI tools however.


CrossOver no longer uses this library (and cxdiag won't check for it) as of 15.0.
