A new user installing Crossover with FH & AS won't have that experience and won't know the FH & AS features well enough to identify if they are broken or not and what workarounds may exist.
Quite correct. I read through Kb Crossover/Linux page and didn't understand much of the information and some of the problems encountered. As I wrote earlier in my "Source field query thread I've using FH7 on Crossover v23 and so far it mostly works very well in my Linux Mint OS.
I consider myself more than a basic user, but not clever enough to test software and confidently edit and update the KB Crossover page. All I can say is Family Historian 7 is so far working very well in my Crossover v23. One problem I faced after installing FH7 was that it would not access the internet because there was a failure during install to include Microsoft Edge Webview2. I've managed to easily overcome this by opening Crossover, finding Microsoft Edge Webview2 in the list of compatible programs, and simply have Crossover install it in the now existing Family Historian bottle. After that FH7's internet access worked fine.
I've not had any of the reported problems when viewing and creating .pdf's, and the only ongoing issue I have is I can't drag and drop files into the FH7 property box.
I'm very impressed with Crossover. It's a great tool for full time Linux users like myself, it takes away all or most of the complications and frustations faced when trying to install a Windows program through Wine or PlayonLinux.
