Windows applications won't launch (jpeg errors)

Apart from the ptrace kernel bug, another common problem when launching windows applications under Crossover on Ubuntu 12.04 is the lack of the necessary 32-bit libjpeg library.

The above command assumes that you installed Crossover from the .deb package. If you used the .bin, that command will read:


Look for

If this library is reported as missing, you can install it with the following command:

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62:i386
