This was an issue in Wine 1.6, which is the current stable version of Wine. According to the Wine AppDB, LoL has a Gold rating when using Wine 1.7.

The approach would be to: 1) Do your extensive stuff in a Runnable (you are ...

That software is unsupported as of Karmic (=2009). Due to the maintainer not upgrading the package to GTK2 at that time. I see no method in installing this software on Ubuntu 14.04 or newer anymore. Also see: How do I configure a joystick or gamepad? It might be possible using a KDE tool. Good luck :) If you get an error message like that please 1st ...

It very much would so make a good computer for a young coder. Touch screen is nice for art, you can get her a touch pen for greater accuracy later, and you wouldn't need the tablet to go with it until she really finds the need for it.
