I just tested this with Slackware 13.1 w/ wine-1.3.12(with patch) and it works great.
After installing i got the notorious:

"The Launcher Has Experienced an Error. Please restart the application".

This is not a issue related to linux, but is found on Windows as well, so i just copied a working dir of LoL form a Windows machine, and it works perfectly.

Libs used:
gecko
ie6 (won't work with ie7 or ie8)
d3dx9
vcrun2005
wininet

Greetings,

The latest patch seems to break League of Legends on wine 1.3.12(patched).
Everything seems to work fine until you're trying to join a game, then I'm stuck in a blackscreen.
I've reinstalled wine and League of Legends and my nvidia drivers, but it did not help.
Does anyone else expirence this issue?

Edit: copying over a clean and working installation from a windows drive fixed my issue, however the riot store is crashing for me, I get a wine the application expiriencend an error message and afterwards I get a launcher error, for now I'll resort using a virtual machine to shop.

The latest update broke my installation as well, but as you say, copying a working dir from a Windows installation solves this issue.

As far as the shop goes; this is a known issue.

Hello all, so I report my issue here.
I followed this howto http://unixblogger.wordpress.com/201...tu-linux-mint/ running on ubuntu 10.10 x86
The best results I got is with also applying winetricks adobeair and copying one of my friend windows installation, that allows me to log in but when I launch a tutorial game, I come back to the same window and the console of wine tell me:

I still believe that someday League of Legends will be native Linux client. I know I'm dreaming but I want it so much..

P.S. CrossOver is celebrating it's 15 anniversary and selling their products for 16$, maybe they can fix wine problems so than this game could be playable again
