Thread: Crossover and Altbinz

    Unhappy Crossover and Altbinz

    Hi,
    I'm VERY new to linux, after putting up with window's **** i finally decided to switch to linux and from reading on the internet i found that openSUSE to be the most user friendly and helpful community.

    I was able to install CrossOver and then proceeded to install Altbinz with it. I "think" i was able to install Altbinz, it shows up on my desktop folder however, when i try to launch it it just hangs.. nothing opens up. The wine glass goes up and down as if its going to launch the program but it doesn't and in about 10 -15 secs it goes away. No window opens. What am i doing wrong? do i need to install anything else to get this to work? I've tried looking everywhere on the internet and the forums here but no luck. If anyone is able to help.. pls help.

    Hi CB,

    That application doesn't show up in our Compatibility database, and it just may not run under CrossOver, sadly. Wine only runs a subset of Windows applications at the moment. It's getting better all the time, but it still doesn't run everything yet, I'm afraid. You might try installing the application into different bottle types (Win98, Win2K, etc.) and see if that makes a difference--that approach can sometimes yield positive results.

    Good Luck,

    Hi
    Just tried it on this machine with 7.1 and a win2k bottle and it worked
    fine?

    Not sure what desktop your using but klibido is similar
    <http://klibido.sourceforge.net/> and a search here
    <http://software.opensuse.org/search?> should get you going.
