installing crossover office


when i try to install it by typing
sh install-crossover-office-2.1.0.sh
i get the following error:
Uncompressing CrossOver Office.............................................................................................. .................................................................................................... .................................................................................................... .................................................................................................... .................................................................................................... .................................................................................................... ............
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Setup requires an X display to run. There is a display variable set, however
you have no permissions to access the X server (:0.0) it points to.


what's wrong? it says i have no permission, but i am under root

You're logged into X as another user, though?

Try
export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0
and the run your command again...


Cheers,

Running Lindows and attempting to install Crossover

I have two files in the root. They are install-crossover-pro-3.0.0.sh and crossover-pro-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm. Now, please keep in mind that I'm running Lindows (a Debian Distribution). I don't even know if I *can* do this, or if I have to convert it from an .rpm extension to a .deb extension.

When installing from root, I type:

sh install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh and I get the following error:

install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh: install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong? Can you please offer some help? Thanks!

Unhappy same error

I get the same error:

./install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh: ./install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh: No such file or directory

UPDATE:

Just realized that I have an installer for the previous version, not 3.0.1

Is there another way to install an .rpm package on a debian distrobution? I have an outdated installer:
install-crossover-pro-3.0.0.sh, and I need install-crossover-pro-3.0.1.sh to install crossover-pro-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm

Why are you logged in as root, CXOFFICE installs in your homefolder, you don't need root privaledges to install it. Try not executing the file as root and see what happens

you need root privleages to install crossover office (at least in my expirences)...


do the following as root

chmod +x crossover*

sh crossover*.bin


That should get you going.

Maybe you can do both. I know I did it without root privaledges and it all installed into my home folder just fine, got Internet Explorer working, couldn't get MS Works working
(There is no Linux equivalent capable of reading works files, and if there is please let me know) and uninstalled it, but did none of it as root.

you can install as root or user. not much difference. I choose to install as root so I know the main binaries can't be overwritten by a process gone wrong.
