League of Legends

League of Legends ( helper script for installing and running on Linux.


  • wine (please see Note)
  • winetricks
  • bash
  • lib32-gnutls
  • lib32-libldap
  • lib32-openal
  • lib32-libpulse
  • wget


The current version of WINE does not support the game. Game crashes while entering the main game after champion selection (bug 47198). Until that is resolved, please use wine-lol instead of wine or wine-staging.


You can install the helper script manually by:

$ git clone
$ cd leagueoflegends
# make install

Alternatively, you can install the script as a package. Pull requests for other distributions are welcome.


The configuration file is located at /etc/leagueoflegends.conf. You can copy the file to ~/.config/, which will take precedence over the system-wide configuration file.

All the commented lines in the file are the default configuration. You can uncomment and change the values as you desire.
