League of Legends on mint 13 Cinnamon?

Postby delicious on Sat Jun 16, 2012 3:08 am

I tried following this: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/sho ... ?t=2107392

But even that tutorial seems too difficult for me. Sometimes I think im learning linux then I just get all boggled and it drives me nuts!

It said to use the repositories to get playonlinux, and i followed that to a T, but it didnt show up in my menu. So i just looked on the software manager and installed it from there (Now it shows up)
I have winetricks already installed.
And now im stuck. If anyone would be good enough to give me step by step instructions I would be extremely grateful! Im so sick of booting to windows to play one of the few games that I do play.

Just wanted a friendly bump and update.

On playonlinux they have the game under "Testing" so i Successfully installed it however I have the following errors.

- Store doesnt work (black screen.
-In Game store is black or screwed up transparency thing.

I can deal with these issues thoug, but the worst of it is

-11 fps which makes it almost impossible to play (or pointless i should say).

Anyone have any tips/suggestions/tweaks?

I followed a Winehq guide for a while but found out that the person who submitted it neglected to mention a number of items needed to properly install League of Legends. This seemed like an easy process, but it turned out it wasn't. I came across another guide on the LoL forums, but I had problems with this too. I would like to try and get the method from winehq working since it seems to have confirmation of the recall bar working and the mini map. In the comments of the Winehq guide it shows that someone got the store working by changing the settings.

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/sho ... ?t=1946188 <--(Turns out this is an older guide from the same person who posted yours)

Really hoping for answers because I really am wanting to play LoL. I'm also new to Linux mint.. Its so confusing :x I installed wine, winetricks, even playonlinux. It's not on there. I have no idea how to use wine to install it? No idea how to use playonlinux either. Trying to download it normally, curious to what that would do. So if someone could tell me how to install it that would be awesome. And if someone could let me know how to even use wine.. or what kind of codes I'll be needing . Pleaseee respond back I'm desperate and very frustrated and made this account just to reply to you guys . Thanks.

One thing I would do, is email the support team or devs of the game, and ask for Linux versions to be produced in the future. If you speak they will hear you.

[Wine compatability ranges from awesome to crap, depending on your software. Newer games are the worst candidates, while older software typically runs just fine. I have a bunch of dated Windows wares that wouldn't run on XP or later, that do just fine in Wine, as well as several games from the mid 2000s that run perfectly.]

Yeah I've thought about it but I've seen so many people talking about it so just figured to ask around. I mean it's probably something little. I'm just not used to Linux at all. Saw a tutorial and got this far but the dude didn't make the part 2 for it.. I just don't have any idea how to use the wine and what codes.
