@notuxius: ib32-nss-mdns is listed as an optional (crossover mostly runs fine without it) dependency so everything seems to be in order on the packaging side of things. Still I wonder why or where you got the message from crossover complaining about missing

error on start:

Some errors may prevent CrossOver Linux from working correctly: * Missing 32bit library

after installing lib32-nss-mdns package - CrossOver starts without error

Updated the PKGBUILD to 17.0.0 and removed the version restriction on freetype2.

Crossover 17.0.0 has been released, and it now seems to work with newer versions of lib32-freetype2!

Here's the edited PKGBUILD I used to install it:

Guys, just download any package other than version 2.8.1 from this address and install with pacman -U command. The problem will be gone.

Crossover has known about the lib32-freetype error, you can get a beta from them that fixes, but they are releasing a new version soon.

With your changes to the PKGBUILD you end up with lib32-freetype2-2.8.1-1 installed on your system which is confirmed to stop crossover from functioning: while the gui still works (its just a piece of python) most windows programs will probably not even launch.

Changing freetype and lib32-freetype to 2.8.2 in PKBUILD seems to work.

Please take a look at our wonderful arch wiki:

Failed to prepare transaction

could not satisfy dependencies:
unable to satisfy dependency 'freetype2<2.8.1' required by crossover
unable to satisfy dependency 'lib32-freetype2<2.8.1' required by crossover


How to downgrade those two packages so that Crossover will install bearing in mind that they are used extensively by XFCE and many other applications? It is of note that this was a recent install and only freetype2-2.8.1/lib32-freetype2-2.8.1 have ever been installed (i.e. any older version wouldn't be in any local cache).
