Did you check the appdb for compatibility (or is the game a native Linux app)?

What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy wine

Thanks

EA Origin is download and DRM system from EA. It is most likely not going to work on Linux.

I suggest you also ask on the EA forum http://forum.ea.com there is some Ubuntu discussion.

The wine appdb page is here

Looks like it works, when you are very lucky.

Open a terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) and copy and paste the commands in post #1 to answer actionparnip's questions. Not sure what he will be able to add though.

Can you help with this problem?
