This is my favorite GUI text editor for Linux, I use the Windows version all the time too. I also covered this topic here.

I'm using Mint Cinnamone installed on virtual machine VMWare. The instruction helped me to adjust my mouse scroll wheel speed. I set the value to 6. Now it's comfortable to use the mouse. Thanks a lot!

CrossOver - run any Windows programs on Linux Mint

CrossOver - program that allows you to run many applications written for Microsoft Windows inside your Linux, and install Windows is not required.

Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.
Owner and main writer of MintGuide.org is not a native English speaker.


Applications are integrated into the operating system: run them as usual Linux software. Reboot and start the virtual machine - not required, and does not need a Windows license.
Even the most die-hard Linux users sometimes need to run Windows software once in a while. Some keep an old Windows PC around, some dual-boot, some use a virtual machine, while others have discovered the power of CrossOver Linux. CrossOver enables you to run the Windows programs you need on your favorite Linux distro like Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, RHEL and more.

The developers of the program claim:
Not only does CrossOver Linux run productivity and utility software all in one application, it also runs games. Without the overhead of a virtual machine, games can run as fast or faster than they would under a Windows operating system.

CrossOver is not free. But believe me it's worth it. Personally, I bought and have no regrets. Met it on different torrent trackers. But I think it is better to buy license and get the newest updates.
NEW!!!
CrossOver Linux Features:
  • Run Windows Software Without Rebooting
  • One Click Installation
  • Software Runs at Native Speed
  • Seamlessly Integrates with Your Desktop Environment
  • Bottles System
To buy the CrossOver for Linux you can on the official website.
Then go to download and download needed DEB version. Install and enjoy. In addition you are free to test the program exactly 2 weeks.

I experienced CrossOver (I bought it) and also "Play On Linux". Several Windows programs run perfectly with Wine, but not at all with CrossOver or Play On Linux. I also wrote to Codeweavers (Crossover software house) fo this problem but they were not able to solve the problem. So I advise you: the better way is using Wine, free and updated.
Best wishes

Hi, Yes you are right. Some programs are better run via Wine. I'll explain.
For example, if you need to run a small program that consists of a single file example.exe then I just push right-click=>run through Wine.
But if I want to run something more extensive, such as the game I use CrossOver.

I also purchased Crossover some years ago. It could only run the programs they support. These were MS Office, Dreamweaver, Adobe suite etc. But if you have windows software outside that list they wont support it. And I had a lot of problems running a specialist software. The other alternative is using virtualbox. The other alternative is product from Robolinux. It has worked seamlessly for me al be it slow. Nothing as close as native speed. Unfortunately, if you need to contact their support (which can easily happen) is not the most friendly.
