What was not tested

Additional Comments

The workaround for installer:
- Run the installer, wait until it'll finish installation, and actually throw an error about: the installer found some problems, please download the installer from the link.
- Don't download anything else, run VM or use friend's\any other's Windows PC. 
- Install Origin there
- Make a full copy of Origin folder. (Default is: C:/Program Files (x86)/Origin)
- Place the copy to winebox/playonlinuxdrive, overwriting any files exist.
- Run the Origin.exe
- Check that everything works.

Some good advises:
- Make sure you uncheck all auto-update settings either Origin or Games.
- Make sure you disabled Origin in-game, as i have few games in Origin thus couldn't tested all of them with this setting enabled. ME series are not working with Origin in-game (black screen)
- Multiplayer sometimes go unstable, and Origin may crash from time to time, games that are tied to the Origin will exit without saving your progress. Be aware! Save often!

My test rig is more than actual hardware so I don't know if this will work for any hardware\software configuration. I'm using custom NVIDIA driver (dl from official website). Haven't checked with standard Ubuntu drivers (MESA) nor with the NVIDIA drivers from Additional Hardware Utility.
Hope this helps)

HowTo / Notes

32-bit or 64-bit Wine prefix

Some applications may work better with a 32-bit wineprefix (this is obviously not true for 64-bit games). You may also have to install some native DLLs to get a game working (commonly this is done with winetricks) - some of them may only work in 32-bit mode (these are issues in Wine, winetricks can't do anything about them).

To install Origin in a separate 32-bit wineprefix issue the following commands:

export WINEARCH=win32
export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine.Origin-32-bit
wine OriginSetup.exe

From now on, simply use the Desktop launcher to start Origin. If you want to start Origin from a terminal, you have to export the WINEPREFIX (repeat above command) first whenever you open a new terminal.

Starting Origin

It's recommended to use the Origin Desktop launcher.

If you want to start it from a terminal you should first change into Origin's installation directory.

Example for default installations:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Origin
wine Origin.exe

Example for 32-bit installations (see above):

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine.Origin-32-bit"
cd $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/Origin
wine Origin.exe
Many games crash on start if the Origin In Game Overlay (IGO) is enabled

To avoid this simply disable Origin in Game. Start Origin and click in the menu
Origin

-> Application Settings
-> Origin in Game
-> Untick "Enable Origin in Game"

Origin sporadically crashes

Symptoms:

  • Origin sporadically crashes with "C:\Program Files\Origin\Origin.exe: double free or corruption (!prev)" or "*** glibc detected *** Origin.exe: double free or corruption (!prev): 0x7cf3b940***".
  • Origin doesn't show up although the Origin.exe process uses the CPU completly.

This issue is tracked in bug #35041.

Workaround:

Use taskset to force the app on one CPU core only. Execute in a terminal:

taskset -c 0 wine Origin.exe

Be warned that this may decrease the overall performance of games launched from Origin.

"Activation.dll load failed" when starting a game on Mac

This issue is tracked in bug #33159.

There's a patch for wine in this bugreport which workarounds this problem. Please note that it is very "hacky" and not a clean solution (while it solves problems for Origin it may cause other apps fail), so this patch can't be added to official wine. To use it you need to download the wine sources, apply the patch and compile your own Wine.

[Fixed since Wine 1.7.55] Origin(Thin)Setup.exe fails to install or update
Origin(Thin)Setup.exe fail to install

Symptom: Both OriginSetup.exe and OriginThinSetup.exe fail to install/update successfully since Origin version 9.5.11.2855. You get a message "Error installing Origin: Something went wrong during the installation. Please reinstall Origin" and afterwards "UPDATE ERROR: Your update could not be completed. Please download and install the latest version of Origin from https://download.dm.origin.com/origin/live/OriginSetup.exe".

Fixed in Wine 1.7.55 (2015-11-13, bug #38417).

Workarounds:

  • Reinstalling with the full installer obviously doesn't work.
  • Download the full Update zip-file from http://download.dm.origin.com/origin/beta/OriginUpdate_9_10_1_1501.zip
    If the link is outdated you have to adjust the version number to the current one, which is printed in the first window that pops up when you start the current OriginThinSetup.exe. Please leave a comment if you find an updated link.
    Then unzip it in the directory of your Origin installation (e.g. ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Origin).
    Thanks J├╝rgen Doser for the report and tip, and thanks to the following people to keep this info updated: Michael Alexander, Allen, mactrix.
[Fixed since Wine 1.7.40] Game installation stuck after downloading | Origin doesn't realize when a game was quit

Symptoms:

  • At the end of a game installation it may stall at 99% (or even earlier) or on "Installing...".
  • After quitting a game you aren't able to restart it again ("Play" is greyed out).
  • If you quit Origin after playing you get a warning "Close Origin: It's recommended that you quit [NAME OF GAME] before exiting Origin. Do you want to exit anyway?"
  • "Last Played" and "Time Played" are not updated.
Fixed in Wine 1.7.40 (2015-03-04, bug #33723).

Workaround for earlier wine versions:

  • In this bugreport you'll find a working patch for wine.
  • If you don't want to build your own wine from source, you can use the "kill EAProxyInstaller.exe" workaround:
    Wait for some time for your HDD to stop working (indicating the installation is done) and kill EAProxyInstaller. To do this type the following in a terminal:
        killall EAProxyInstaller.exe
    The game should immediately become ready to play. If you kill EAProxyInstaller.exe too soon, Origin will keep offering to install the game. Killing the process too soon is not harmful and the game can always be installed again.

How to get Origin working (March 2017)
by Luca Weiss on Wednesday March 22nd 2017, 15:09
Download www.dm.origin.com/download/legacy (legacy OriginThinSetup.exe).
Create a fresh wineprefix (32-bit).
Run the installer and leave the default options.
When Origin launches it will tell you that "Your update could not be completed.".
Download origin-a.akamaihd.net/Origin-Client-Download/origin/live/OriginUpdate_9_12_0_34172.zip and put the contents into your_wine_prefix/drive_c/Program\ Files/Origin/ , so that that folder contains a Origin.exe file.
You can then start this Origin.exe and log in.
some progress for 64bit install and updating Origin
by Allison on Tuesday March 21st 2017, 8:31
I initially had some luck with installing the legacy on a 32-bit wine prefix (see the many posts below). Of course this wouldn't allow for the installation of newer games.

I decided to fiddle around with things today. From the successful install of the 32-bit wine prefix folder (.wine.Origin-32-bit) I logged into the Origin server successfully (nothing new).

I then copied over the entire contents of the Origin folder to the 32-bit PlayOnLinux folder. Worked again - I was signed in automatically. (It also worked bypassing PoL and just using wine).

I then copied the 32-bit install into the 64-bit PlayOnLinux folder, and I was signed in automatically. Saw my game library, etc. But it was still the legacy version of Origin.

I then copied a Windows 10 64-bit working installation over to the 64-bit PlayOnLinux folder, and... it updated. The stupid thing actually updated. I am now running the newest Origin over PoL, winecfg Windows 8.1 and mf.dll disabled in the library. I was logged in automatically. It seems, no surprise, that there is a cookie, somewhere.... but where? I overwrote the entire Origin directory with a working Windows install.

Can games play? I have no idea yet. But I'm downloading Mass Effect: Andromeda. It uses DirectX11, so chances are I'll get a black screen. Later, I'll download an older game to test it.
Origin Files
by Nick Olson on Thursday February 23rd 2017, 16:35
If you are getting an error while installing Origin that looks something like "Origin needs to connect to internet to finish installation" You may need to get the "Origin" files and paste them in your "Program Files (x86)" folder. If you don't have another computer with Origin correctly installed you can get the full Origin file here (Yandex Disk) : yadi.sk/d/b6r3lUKN3EUDeP

Just download this and paste its contents in '/home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files(x86)/Origin/' (Assuming you have a 'default' install of both wine and origin). These files are for Origin Legacy Installer 32 bit.

This should let you start Origin if it couldn't connect to the internet to install.

Unable to install Origin
by Allen on Monday January 23rd 2017, 12:45
Kubuntu 16.04, fully updated. Wine 2.0-rc6.

Here is the log from an attempt in a fresh, 32 bit envronment: pastebin.com/AhktEw1P

And from a fresh, 64 bit envronment: pastebin.com/scJWCyBd

Both set to windows 7, since the new installer won't install to an XP environment. I have it working in an XP environment but it's a really old version of Origin and will only start in offline mode.

Haven't had any luck with the legacy installer either. It pops up a window complaining about not being able to download something.

Any ideas?
Unable to start Origin: d3d11 errors I think?
by Dylan Morrison on Wednesday January 18th 2017, 8:59
This is in a clean, 32-bit wineprefix.

So, I seem to be unable to start Origin at all. I'm currently using wine 2.0-rc5 on Arch Linux. It was unable to update itself after using the Legacy Installer, giving the same issue that was noted in the howtos for a bug supposedly fixed in 1.7.x. I downloaded the latest update for Origin in zip form manually and extracted it, and that seemed to work. However, with the windows version set to Windows XP (the default, and what the current latest test said they had it set to), it complains that Origin only works on Windows 7 or newer. If I set it to Windows 7, I get a number of fixmes involving d3d11, and then I get a crash of Origin with an empty error report.

Here's a pastebin of the output of trying to run Origin with the version set to Windows 7:

Origin Installer not working
by Thomas Haugh on Saturday September 24th 2016, 14:19
Hi,

I'm running wine 1.9.19-1 on a machine with up to date version of Arch Linux. I've tried using a 32bit wine prefix and a couple of different winetricks: d3dx9, dotnet20, dotnet30, vcrun20{10,12,13}. When I try to use the origin installer or thin installer I get the an error that my machine doesn't meet the hardware specifications. The output from wine is long so here is a link pastebin.com/FQvV7352
Origin Crash on Login

Windows Version 7 fails Full Install
by noa body on Tuesday June 14th 2016, 19:24
With windows version set to XP the full installer runs fine. Changing the version to 7 immediately prompts for an update that seems to fail.

There seems to be a URL redirector that functions off a valid client version number and points to the latest update.

secure.download.dm.origin.com/autopatch/2/upgradeFrom/9.12.2.60376/en_US/PROD?platform=PCWIN actually shows the download location in XML as origin-a.akamaihd.net/Origin-Client-Download/origin/live/OriginUpdate_9_12_2_60376.zip

Directly downloading that update and overwriting files in ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Origin allows the client to run fine in Windows 7 mode.
ORIGIN WORKS ON WINDOWS 7
by Erikas Rudinskas on Saturday May 21st 2016, 2:33
Hi guys. I've managed to get Origin working on Windows 7 prefix. When you install it using Windows 7 prefix, it succeeds, but afterwards it doesn't launch. I've found out that Origin folder in program files becomes read only for some reason, and before launching origin.exe, always make origin folder and it's files read-write instead of read-only.

I'm using this command:
chmod -R 774 /home//.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/ANYTHING/drive_c/Program\ Files/Origin

And origin launches successfully.

by Joel Watts on Wednesday December 23rd 2015, 7:18
I have been having trouble getting this working but thanks to my brother, we managed to get it working.
What you will have to do is disable Origin in Games which can be done by going to Application Settings > Origin in Games > Enable Origin in Game (Disable), as if you don't, Origin crashes when you try to launch a new game, and blacklist mf.dll

Now I am using playonlinux so I only know how to do it that way, it might be the same as doing it normally, I don't know. But keep in mind that this is POL I'm talking about, might just have to skip to Wine Configuration part of my tutorial.

To blacklist it, click on Origin in PlayonLinux, then hit configure. Go to the Wine Tab and click Wine configuration (This is where I think you might be able to do this without POL), go to libraries and click and type in the "New override for library" mf.dll and then hit add.

Then click on mf.dll in the existing override box and click edit.
Look for disable, click that, hit okay and you should be good to go.

Just for the extra details, I am using Linux Mint 17.3 MATE 64Bit, Origin is 32bit and the Wine I'm using for it is 1.7.55

another work around for failed updated
by mark on Friday September 11th 2015, 19:58
Hi All,

I found during the update, the installer extracts the files to:

~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Origin/SelfUpdate/

There is also a log under: ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Application Data/Origin/Logs/UpdateTool_Log.txt

The error i was getting was:

2015/9/9 5:38:54.618] FILE_ATTRIBUTE_ARCHIVE: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\Origin.VisualElementsManifest.xml. Last error: [32]
[2015/9/9 5:38:54.618] SetFileAttributes failed.. Last error: [0]
[2015/9/9 5:38:54.618] Attempting deletion operation: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\Origin.VisualElementsManifest.xml. Number of times: [1]. Last error: [0]


So i found a work around to make the update work. During the update f you:
1) move ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Origin/ to a temp directory
2) wait for the install to fail
3) copy the temp directory back, but do not overwrite any files

it should work (worked for me):

igoproxy.exe
by Allen on Friday July 24th 2015, 13:23
I've started a fresh wine environment in ~/.wine32-2.
I've installed vcrun2010, 2012 and 2013 via winetricks.
I'm telling it to use the win32 architecture.
After running OriginSetup.exe, I copy in the Origin directory from a freshly installed and updated Win7 PC.

I launch Origin.exe (env WINEARCH=win32 env WINEPREFIX="/home/aseelye/.wine32-2" wine Origin.exe) and it let's me log into origin, then I get a message telling me "The program igoproxy.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.".

Next I get an Origin window saying "Origin has encountered a serious problem and must close".

Has anyone else come across this?

To the people getting errors when installing, if you are using playonlinux with wine try going to "configure" on the driver that you are trying to install on, then click on "install components" and install "dotnet45" it will update the driver. After trying for a week, I'm finally able to log into origin and install my games. I hope this helped :D

PS I also had to type
echo 1 | sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope
into terminal in order to do so.

unable to even download

This is my first time trying to use Wineskin for anything, but I've attempted multiple times now to get Origin for PC to download (using OriginThinSetup.exe and OriginSetup.exe), but every time that I do, I get an error-message mid-download: "Program Error - The program Setup.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." If I just click "Close", the installation keeps going, but I can't get the installation of the actual program to work. Not a computer genius and have wasted a lot of time trying to get this to work in multiple ways, have completely deleted the wrapper a few times and started from scratch, all to no avail. Help?
