Debian based systems
Download the CrossOver .deb package from My Downloads. Right-click the .deb file and Open With>Gdebi
If your distribution doesn't have Gdebi pre-installed, you can do the Terminal Install instead.
Using a terminal, navigate to the directory you downloaded crossover.deb to, then install CrossOver using apt:
sudo apt install ./crossover.deb
If you already have CrossOver installed you can go through these same steps to upgrade. Download and install the .deb again and you'll be updated to the newest binaries.
Turn on the Linux option in Chrome OS. Open Settings and click Linux (Beta) then Turn On. You will want to increase the size of the disk as the default 5GB is too small for multiple Windows applications.
Download the CrossOver .deb package from My Downloads. Right-click the .deb file and choose Install with Linux (Beta) and then click the blue Install button. Once the installation is done Crossover will have an icon that you use in Launcher menu.
RPM based systems
First, bring the system up to date:
sudo dnf update
sudo yum update
The recommended methods to use for installing Crossover on an rpm based system are by using the DNF package management tool:
sudo dnf install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
Or by using YUM if DNF is unavailable:
sudo yum install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
Or by using the rpm package management tool directly:
sudo rpm -ivh http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
For Fedora 30 user's additional packages may be required :
dnf install \ nss-mdns.i686 mesa-libGLU.i686 isdn4k-utils.i686 libgphoto2.i686 mpg123-libs.i686 openal-soft.i686 \ ocl-icd.i686 mesa-libOSMesa.i686 sane-backends-devel.i686 libxslt.i686 libnsl.i686 libnsl.x86_64 \ gstreamer1.i686 \ libxcrypt-compat
The generic .bin installer is universal and can be installed on just about any Linux system. This installer doesn't download any needed dependency packages, so we recommend that you use the deb/rpm package appropriate for your system instead.
To download the latest version of CrossOver:
First set the .bin file to be executable
$ chmod +x crossover.bin
and then run the file
