Crossover Office is a fork of wine, aimed at users of Microsoft Office, and associated programs.

Crossover Office allows you to use these windows-based programs under linux.

See http://www.codeweavers.com/ for more info.

Crossover Office on Arch64

To install Crossover office on Arch64, you need some 32bit emulation libraries (All of these may not be required anymore, I just installed all of them):

pacman -S linux32 lib32-gcc lib32-glibc lib32-libxi lib32-zlib lib32-libsm

Set executable flag and login as root or use the superuser command (the Crossover install script doesn't like to be run in sudo):

chmod +x install-crossover-pro-9.0.0.sh && su

All that is left is to run the installer:

./install-crossover-pro-9.0.0.sh

After the installation cxinstaller and other crossover programs may fail to start. Run them from the terminal:

 $CXOFFICE_INSTALL_DIR/bin/cxinstaller

If you see the following error:

 ImportError: No module named gtk

Install the python gtk module:

 pacman -S pygtk 

This also fixed a "no gobject" warning that showed up when running the installer.
