Missing Python 3 D-Bus support


The D-Bus Python modules let the CrossOver application installation wizard detect the insertion of media such as CD-ROMs and USB flash drives. This lets it look for Windows installers and automatically pick the appropriate application profile.
This is not needed to run Windows applications.


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

/path/to/cxoffice/bin/cxfix python3-dbus

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.
Arch Linux : pacman -Syu python-dbus
Debian : apt-get install python3-dbus
Fedora : yum install python3-dbus
openSUSE >= 13.1 : zypper install dbus-1-python3
openSUSE >= 15.0 : zypper install python3-dbus-python


  • cxfix --show-all may have more up-to-date fixes.
  • The commands usually also apply to newer versions of the distributions above as well as derived distributions. So for instance a fix for Debian 7 may still be valid for the latest Debian Testing and 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.
