CrossOver Support

Elementary OS

This distribution is not considered supported.


First teach the system about 32bit packages:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
Then, bring the system up to date:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade
Download the latest version of CrossOver:
Install CrossOver:
sudo apt-get install gdebi; sudo gdebi crossover.deb
sudo dpkg -i crossover.deb

After this, CrossOver will be installed but it will be missing various packages. Install them now:

sudo apt-get install libnss-mdns:i386 libssl0.9.8:i386 libxslt1.1:i386 libxml2:i386 libxcomposite1:i386 libv4l-0:i386 libsane:i386 libopenal1:i386 libmpg123-0:i386 libldap-2.4-2:i386 libgstreamer0.10-0:i386 libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386 libgsm1:i386 libgphoto2-6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libcapi20-3:i386 libxinerama1:i386

Two packages will still be missing:

[MissingLibOsmesa] "Level"="Suggest" "Title"="Missing 32bit library" "Description"="This is needed by some games and CAD-like applications to perform off-screen rendering." [MissingLibTiff] "Level"="Suggest" "Title"="Missing 32bit library" "Description"="This is needed by some applications that need to manipulate TIFF images in their user interface."
