How to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.2


Today we are looking at how to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.2.  We are using the Lutris method to install LOL in this video, as the Lutris team are truly committed to giving the best experience possible of League of Legends on Linux.

It is the Windows client running via Wine on Linux and sometimes a new League patch breaks the game but after a while, the Lutris team normally find a fix and release it to us for free,  So please consider supporting them.

You will notice that in the installation a pop-up appeared to install Graphics drivers if you don't have it, League should work just fine without it, just click on the link and choose the instructions which are correct for your computer's hardware.  Enjoy!

Update: Since making this video, Wine 5.0 has arrived and the installation commands have changed, we updated the commands below, so it is now different than in the video, but for a video guide to install Wine, look here.  The installation method for Lutris has also changed, and we updated that commands as well,  we hope it helps!

Instructions:

1) sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
2) wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

  1. Hello! This is not working for me. I get this error: E: Malformed entry 1 in list file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list (Component)
    E: The list of sources could not be read.
    PS: I m a new user of linux, I just install it so don t blame me if this is something that is very simple to solve.

    1. u made the same mistake as i did
      use " sudo nano etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list " to look into the file delete the entry u just made there and save and exit nano then use the command " sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main' " again but copy and paste it so u dont have any errors. then try sudo apt update and then it should work.
