How do I fix this? It shows an error, and I don't know how to fix it. I want to install crossover.

I have another recent error.

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.

running apt-get -f install gives me the same error every time.

What is the exact command you executed? And as which user? –  jippie Nov 17 '12 at 10:16

I have solved this problem myself.

Just run :

sudo apt-get autoremove crossover:i386

and reinstall.
