Missing libgnutls 32-bit library


Some Windows applications need this library to perform encryption or check online certificates.


To install this library, run one of the following commands as root, or look for the corresponding package names in your favorite package manager:

    32/64-bit Debian/Ubuntu : apt-get install libgnutls30:i386 (or libgnutls-deb0-28:i386)
    32-bit Debian 7 and older or Ubuntu : apt-get install libgnutls26 (or libgnutls13)
    64-bit Debian 7 and older or Ubuntu : sudo apt-get install libgnutls26:i386
    32/64-bit Fedora : dnf install gnutls.i686
    32/64-bit Mandriva : urpmi libgnutls26 (or libgnutls13)
    32-bit SUSE : zypper install libgnutls28 (or libgnutls26)
    64-bit SUSE : zypper install libgnutls28-32bit (or libgnutls26-32bit)
    32-bit Arch : pacman -Syu gnutls
    64-bit Arch : pacman -Syu lib32-gnutls

cxdiag and CrossOver cannot find libgnutls - Debian based distributions - Resolved with CrossOver 14.1.3

With thanks to Silviu for help in triaging this issue

This causes failures in applications like Quicken, Outlook, Diablo III, and many more.

It is due to an update to the Debian package name.

For now, create a symlink to the name CrossOver expects to find to restore functionality once the library is installed.

First, install the library:
sudo apt-get install libgnutls-deb0-28:i386

Then, create the symlink:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/

CrossOver 13.1.3 and older

When in use with OpenSUSE systems, it is necessasry to create symlinks from the libgnutls28 libraries, once installed, to like so:

ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
