    Mathematica 12.0 has been fully tested on the Linux distributions listed above. On new Linux distributions, additional compatibility libraries may need to be installed. It is likely that Mathematica will run successfully on other distributions based on the Linux kernel 2.6 or later.

    Mathematica supports an X Window System front end, and uses the Qt application framework for its user interface—the same used by the major Linux desktop environment KDE. Regular tests are run on both enterprise and popular open-source Linux distributions.

    Additional Notes

  • For assistance migrating your Mathematica installation to a new computer, contact customer service »
  • To use the C compilation feature in Mathematica, a C compiler is required to be present.
  • To use Mathematica’s built-in GPU computing capabilities, you’ll need a dual-precision graphics card that supports OpenCL or CUDA, such as many cards from NVIDIA, AMD and others.
  • For system requirements for Mathematica 9 through 11.3.0, go to the Wolfram Product System Requirements page.
