How to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.1 with Lutris


Today we look at how to install League of Legends on Linux Mint 19.1.  At the time of make this video and post, Linux Mint 19.1 is still in Beta.  However, this method will work on Linux Mint 19, 19.1 and future 19.x releases.

In the past, I could not install League of Legends on Mint 19 via Lutris, even though it works great on Ubuntu and it was odd for me as Mint is based on Ubuntu.  However, I found the missing link, if a person runs the command winecfg it install all the needed packages and then everything runs smoothly.  Enjoy!

Ps. I just updated the wine installation commands as Wine HQ has changed the installation process.
so I updated the commands, I apologize for the inconveniences.

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 League of Legends, look here.
