I installed League of Legends on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It installed, but when I click the launcher, I get an immediate bug splat. I'm following instructions how to fix this problem but this one came up and I have no idea how to install it (I'm brand new to Linux):

Install TuxLoL

Download it from here: https://bitbucket.org/Xargoth/tuxlol/wiki/Home Unzip anywhere you want

Enter the folder you just unzipped (where there is the tuxlol.exe file) and execute it:

$ mono tuxlol.exe patch --dir "LEAGUE_OF_LEGENDS_DIR"

Obviously, replace LEAGUE_OF_LEGENDS_DIR with your League of Legends directory. In my case, it's installed here:

~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends/

PS: You'll have to reaply this patch everytime a new LoL update is released.

How to install League of Legends in Ubuntu 14.04


You don't "Install" tuxlol. You unzip it (right click->extract here). This will be default happen in your "Downloads" directory, same as where your default downloads are.

Open up your terminal, by pressing Ctrl+ALT+T, then navigate to your tuxlol directory (typically using the command cd Downloads/tuxlol-0.1-dd62ba8-bin) and type in the command :

mono tuxlol.exe patch --dir /home/$USER/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot\ Games/League\ of\ Legends/

Copy-paste the command as if you're truly new to Linux then you haven't customized your installations and it should work straight off. This will fix it for you.

To truly understand what you've done in the above commands, play with terminal a little and it's pretty basic.
