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).

I checked crossover 16.2.5 (which is the latest crossover version right now that I am aware of) against lib32-freetype2-2.8.1-1. That combination does not work. Hence I have decided to change the dependency to lib32-freetype2<2.8.1. If you know of another working combination please let me know.

With regards making freetype2 a hard dependency - some time during this year I have reworked all dependencies using the wine PKGBUILD as a baseline. And wine has a hard dependency on freetype2. For good reason - not much works in crossover if freetype is missing.

Just a question? Why did u make freetype2 also a hard dependency for downgrading? Crossover does not depend on it and for me it was working just fine with the latest version... Crossover only has issues with lib32-freetype2... And also on that note, did you check the function of this latest Crossover update with latest lib32-freetype2? Maybe they fixed the issue - they were looking into it after all and hence the new version?
