Installation trial and error

Apparently Crossover can utilize Python3 with the help of pygtk. Personally, I can't confirm this right now. 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. T1nk3r3r (talk) 08:09, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

What I did

   $ wget 
   $ 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.

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?
