@vially Thanks for the heads-up on the python dependency. I can confirm crossover runs fine on python3. I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.

While I am on it, it is again time to check and rework the rest of the dependencies - which basically means copying the dependencies from wine and checking what crossover needs on top of than.

This time around I would like to drop i686 support as I can no longer test that. So is anybody still using crossover on i686?

According to the changelog (https://www.codeweavers.com/products/more-information/changelog) Crossover 19 is now compatible with Python 3.

Is there any reason why this package still depends on Python 2?

Updated crossover to 19.0.0. Additional changes:

  • crossover.install no longer creates an uninstall shortcut. Thanks @dylanmtaylor for suggesting this.

  • removed isdn4k-utils dependency as the package is no longer available.

@elswerky: You are right that the package does not include a .desktop file - which is intentionally. The desktop file is created by a call to cxmenu in post_install section of crossover.install. I do not see any problems with that approach and therefore no reason to change that.

latest version v 18.5.1 doesn't have a desktop launcher icon

there is not crossover.desktop file inside created tar.xz pkg

plz correct it

@dylanmtaylor: good suggestion. I see no reason to keep the "Uninstall CrossOver Linux" shortcut. Will remove that in the next update.

Any chance you could remove the "Uninstall CrossOver Linux" shortcut since you'd want to do that with the package manager anyways?

@mya711: lib32-nss-mdns is already included as an optional dependency for x86_64 and crossover in most cases runs just fine without it. So I see no reason the include it as an required dependency. Please keep in mind right now installing crossover is fairly easy and quick since it does not have a hard dependency on annother AUR package and I intend on keeping it that way.

Installing lib32-nss-mdns does solve the problem. However the next package update would benefit from including lib32-nss-mdns as a dependency.
