CrossOver Support

Removing Crossover Linux


The best way to remove CrossOver depends on the installation method you used.

Removal of .deb installation


CrossOver is stored in two locations on Linux. The CrossOver binaries exist at /opt/cxoffice and the bottles and config files at ~/.cxoffice.

The typical Mark for Removal will delete the CrossOver binaries. Mark for Complete Removal will also get rid of the bottles.


1. Quick Removal


Open your package manager (Synaptic in this example) and search for crossover.



Right-click on the CrossOver entry, or go to the Package menu, and choose Mark for Removal.



And apply the changes.




2. Manual Removal


Alternately you can open a terminal and run:

sudo rm -rf /opt/cxoffice rm -rf ~/.cxoffice

or just

sudo dnf erase crossover
(For Fedora 23 and later)

to completely remove CrossOver.

Removal of .bin installation


The best way to remove a .bin installation is using the CrossOver Uninstaller.

Find the uninstaller by searching for "Uninstall CrossOver" in the Dash, and double-click on the Uninstall CrossOver icon to run it.



This will open a prompt which allows you to choose whether or not to keep your bottles during the uninstall, and to complete the uninstall process.
