If you've purchased CrossOver, download it from My Downloads
Download the CrossOver
.deb package from My Downloads. Right-click the
.deb file and Open With>Gdebi.
If you don't have Gdebi, you can install CrossOver from a terminal.
Open a terminal session and navigate to the directory containing the
.deb package. Then install CrossOver using apt:
sudo apt install ./crossover_22.0.1-1.deb
If CrossOver is already installed on your system, following the same steps upgrades CrossOver to the newest binaries.
Once the installation is done Crossover will have an icon that you use in Launcher menu.
First, bring the system up to date:
sudo dnf update
sudo yum update
We recommend using the DNF package management tool to install Crossover on an rpm-based system as follows:
sudo dnf install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
If DNF is unavailable, use YUM or the RPM package management tool as follows:
sudo yum install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
sudo rpm -ivh http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm
For Fedora 30 users, additional packages may be required. Install the additional packages from Terminal as follows:
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 shell (
.bin) installer is universal and can be installed on most Linux systems. This installer doesn't download any needed dependency packages, so we recommend using the
.rpm package when possible.
.binfile to be executable.
