    If you downloaded the 32bit version you must install 32bit software. Doesn't matter what you're CPU is.

    Crossover Chromium.

    EDIT: Since im having another Ubuntu problem ill say this too.
    I have Wine installed but when i download stuff like iTunes and Safari it says theyre was an error while installing.

    Wubi will automatically download the 64-Bit version if your processor supports it.

    You can run 32-Bit software on Ubuntu 64-Bit if you have the needed 32-Bit libraries installed.
    I'm not sure what the dependencies of Crossover Chromium are, probably the same as Wine.

    You can force the deb to install with something like:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i *.deb

    Yes

    Make sure you run it in the same directory that the deb is in. (If you're not sure, just copy the deb into your home folder and run that command)
