Before installing CrossOver, bring the system up to date using sudo dnf update. Then install CrossOver as follows:

sudo dnf install http://crossover.codeweavers.com/redirect/crossover.rpm


Known Issues

Accented characters (e.g., è ñ ê é á) do not work in applications run via CrossOver, but work in native applications like Libre Office. The current workaround is to launch the application with ibus disabled. Bug 11871 is open for the issue, and we are researching a better solution.

Ibus can be disabled each time an application is launched using the terminal method, or ibus can be permanently disabled for an application by modifying the application's launcher.

Launch Application from Terminal with ibus Disabled

To turn ibus modifiers off when launching an application from terminal, do the following:

XMODIFIERS="@im-none" /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle $BOTTLENAME --cx-app $EXECUTABLE.exe

For example, to launch Microsoft Word, the command is as follows:

XMODIFIERS="@im-none" /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle Microsoft_Office_2007 --cx-app winword.exe

For Microsoft Outlook, the command is as follows:

XMODIFIERS="" /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --bottle Microsoft_Office_2007 --cx-app outlook.exe &

Turn ibus Off for a Launcher

To permanently modify an application's launcher, locate the launcher at:


Open the launcher with a text editor, and you should see the following:

exec "/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine" --bottle "Microsoft_Office_2007" --check --wait-children --start "C:/users/crossover/Start Menu/Programs/Microsoft Office/Microsoft Outlook 2007.lnk" "$@"

Modify it to look like this:

XMODIFIERS="" exec "/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine" --bottle "Microsoft_Office_2007" --check --wait-children --start "C:/users/crossover/Start Menu/Programs/Microsoft Office/Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.lnk" "$@"
