What works

Important: only the 64-Bit Version was successfully tested, and only OriginPro. You also need to install additional packages and MSVC2012 runtime, please see the Workarounds section.

Working well as tested so far:

  • general data processing
  • ASCII import
  • OriginC scripting
  • Non-linear curve fitting
  • Digitizer / Data-Picker

Working with some restrictions:

  • Image export (Vector-Graphics preview not shown, export looks nice)
  • Python Scripting - the script window does not like Python as it does on Windows, the Python Console and File-Based scripts do work

What does not

  • All MSHTML-Based stuff, e.g. the "Welcome Dialog". Unfortunately I didnot find a simply way do disable it in the Origin.ini File.
  • Previews for Graphs in the Export Dialog
  • Graph Axis Dialog has some severe problems. It does work, but shows normally invisible buttons and no contents before selecting a tab to display.

Also, the Software crashes with vanilla Wine-VC2012, see Workarounds.

After selecting a Tab:



As we have to install VisualC 2012 runtime I suggest to create a new wine-prefix and install there using e.g.

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/progs/Origin2019 wineboot
WINEPREFIX=$HOME/progs/Origin2019 wine $home/Downloads/Origin/setup.exe

OriginLab 2019b crashes with the Wine-Supplied MSVC2012 runtime. You can use winetricks to install it using

WINEPREFIX=$HOME/progs/Origin2019 winetricks vcrun2012

Also, Origin 2019 uses Windows Fonts by default, so you either need to change the font once you first started the software or install MS fonts, e.g. by

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Winetricks verbs for MS Fonts did not succeed downloading the required files for me, but might work for others.

What was not tested

I did not do intense testing of Python or 3D support, as well as
matrices. Signal processing was also not tested so far. OriginLab does
report OpenGL to be working.

And probably a lot more features I might now even know about, as this App has a lot..

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

I found PDF graph export to work very well on Linux/Wine. Compared to virtualization with VirtualBox, where some bugs in the 3D-Accelerator prevent glyphs to be rendered at the correct position, I prefer Wine over virtualized Windows.

Unfortunately, the Axis-Properties dialog does not work any more in this Version (and, in fact, also 2019).
