Crossover issues Segmentation Fault in terminal when installing from .bin file on KDE systems

If you see the following error message in terminal when attempting to install Crossover from the .bin file in Fedora 18 KDE:

(installer.kRRqS4Xatx:2123): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_text_attributes_ref: assertion `values != NULL' failed (installer.kRRqS4Xatx:2123): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_text_attributes_ref: assertion `values != NULL' failed /home/jack/Downloads/install-crossover-12.1.0.bin: line 129: 2123 Segmentation fault (core dumped) "$installer" "$@"

You're hitting a bug in the oxygen-gtk theme. It's easy to work around this problem: switch "System Settings>Application Appearance>GTK+ Appearance>Widget Style" to anything other than "oxygen-gtk" - "Adwaita" or "HighContrast", for example. When the "Widget Style" has been switched away from "oxygen-gtk", run the .bin installer file for Crossover in terminal, again.

After this succeeds, you can switch the "Widget Style" back to "oxygen-gtk" - this bug only affects the initial installation screen, the rest of Crossover's functions will work, post-install.

You can read read more about this bug here. It has been reported as fixed. If you continue to experience this issue or are unable to update, you can set this environment variable prior to launching the CrossOver installer:
