Temporary Discontinuation of WorkSmart Support for Linux

Dear Valued Crossover Partner,

 

Thank you for your continued support for WorkSmart so far.

This notice is to inform you that Crossover has decided to temporarily discontinue the technical support provided for WorkSmart under the Linux operating system.

At present, we are not certifying new Linux builds for release as we are working with Central Services in unifying our client software and increase our automation coverage. We expect official Linux support to return by Q1 of 2019 as we expand our capabilities to include new flavors of Linux. New partners will not have the option to download the Linux client until we can certify a new release.
 
We are hoping to launch an area soon where we can post all of the historical versions of the tracker for download in case they are needed.
 
Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this change may cause.
 
In the meantime, if you are still using a WorkSmart Linux client, you may continue doing so; however, we will not provide official support to any malfunctions or defects that only affect the Linux platform. If you need to download a new client, please switch to one of the WorkSmart clients approved for Windows or MacOS.
 
If you have any questions about the progress of Linux support, please contact Daniel Fredriksen <daniel.fredriksen@crossover.com> for more information.
 
 
Thank you very much,

- The Crossover Team

    I troubleshoot the WS tool on my Fedora with Gnome and have found it requires a system tray for a correct work. However, it is missing in Gnome. The installation of Topicons Redux Gnome Shell extension which simulates a system tray fixed the compatibility issue for me.

    Were can I download one of the previous version? I have a new laptop to improve my work but I had to stick with my old laptop instead since I don't have the Work Smat installer for linux.
