How to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.3


Today we are looking at how to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.3.  This installation guide exists out of 3 parts.  In the first part, we install Win Stable, the first 6 commands below.  After that we install Lutris, and lastly, we open up the league of legends Lutris page and install it from there.  Enjoy!

As you would see during the installation of League, Lutris will recommend you install Vulkan drivers, with a good article on how to if you have an Intel, AMD or Nvidia GPU which will improve the experience but it is not required.
