Wine

CrossOver is the paid, commercialized version of Wine which provides more comprehensive end-user support. It includes scripts, patches, and third-party software which may never be accepted in the Wine Project. This combination makes running Windows programs considerably easier for those aren't so tech-savvy.

Reason: Multi-user installs, other desktop environments, older versions (if applicable). (Discuss in Talk:CrossOver#)

Installing Crossover Linux

Tested with trial install-crossover-11.2.1.bin

  • Ensure python-dbus-common, pygtk and python2-dbus are installed.
  • Run # ln -sf /usr/bin/python2 /usr/bin/python
  • Finally $ ./install-crossover-*.bin for single user.

Using CrossOver

Assuming it was installed as user, Crossover binaries should be located in ~/cxoffice.

Some desktop environments like KDE may have automatically placed menu entries as part of the installation process.

Installed programs should be located under a new menu entry called Window Applications.

Tip: If you get a registration failure, try: # /opt/cxoffice/bin/cxregister. Registration should then complete and be valid for all users on the system.
