Apparently Crossover can utilize Python3 with the help of pygtk.  Personally, I can't confirm this right now.  [[User:T1nk3r3r|T1nk3r3r]] ([[User talk:T1nk3r3r|talk]]) 08:09, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Can anyone vouch for the continuing validity of the following sections?  Otherwise, I will condense/remove information that doesn't appear relevant/necessary to the current version. [[User:T1nk3r3r|T1nk3r3r]] ([[User talk:T1nk3r3r|talk]]) 08:09, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
 
 
=== What I did ===
 
 
    $ wget http://www.codeweavers.com/account/downloads/install-crossover-standard-10.0.0.bin
 
    $ sudo sh install-crossover-standard-10.0.0.bin
 
 
accepted license agreement and the standard path (/opt/cxoffice), clicked install, got a python error that went away again, then clicked OK. Then I went into /opt/cxoffice/bin and did
 
 
    sed -i".tmp" 's/env python/env python2/' /opt/cxoffice/bin/*
 
 
and started /opt/cxoffice/cxsetup
 
 
=== Arch 64 Section ===
 
 
I found a link that is very helpful to those of us running the 64 bit version. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=107765
 
 
Also, I'm not sure on the complete meaning of this part of the article:
 
''As the above isn't working now because of python3 and perhaps some more issues, it's likely better to install via AUR. One can you a helper such as bauer: bauerbill --aur -S crossover-games replace "/usr/bin/env python" with "/usr/bin/env python2" in the following files in directory cd /opt/cxgames/bin/: cxassocedit cxinstaller cxmenuedit cxmessage cxregister cxreset cxrun cxsetup cxupdatecheck cxwait
 
 
''All should work now.
 
 
I get the main idea, however would somebody who knows more about this be able to add some more clarity?
 
 
=== Making PKGBUILD work without deb2targz ===
 
 
I tried to install Crossover Office Pro, but the PKGBUILD includes deb2targz which appears to be out of date now.  I modified the PKGBUILD 10.2.0-1:
 
 
comment out makedepends=('deb2targz') to #makedepends=('deb2targz') <br>
 
 
from:<br>
 
 
build() {<br>
 
cd "${srcdir}"<br>
 
deb2targz crossover-standard-demo_${pkgver}-1_i386.deb<br>
 
tar xf crossover-standard-demo_${pkgver}-1_i386.tar.gz -C "${pkgdir}"<br>
 
<br>
 
to:
 
<br>
 
package() {<br>
 
cd "${srcdir}"<br>
 
 
ar tv crossover-pro-demo_${pkgver}-1_i386.deb<br>
 
 
bsdtar -C "$pkgdir" -xvf data.tar.gz<br>
 
<br>
 
and it works a treat.<br>
 
 
Hope this helps someone else.
 
 
Regards,
 
 
Algenon.

:Issues with AUR packages should be reported to their maintainers using the comments in the package pages, in this case I guess [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=14187 here].
