[HowTo] Instal LOL (or any other game) in Lutris

League of Legends (LOL) is a Windows OS native MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), free-to-play. Lutris is a GNU/Linux Open Source gaming platform.

Start by checking if you have all your packages up to date. Pull up terminal and type this:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

You need to have your Wine up to date too. I went to https://wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu and followed the instructions there.

"If your system is 64 bit, enable 32 bit architecture (if you haven't already):

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 "

"Download and add the repository key:

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key

sudo apt-key add winehq.key "

For Zorin 16, which is based in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, add this repository:

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ focal main'

If you have an older version of Zorin, see the correct repository for you in that Wine page I left above. For example, if it's Zorin 15, which is based in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, you must select the command for that version.

sudo apt update

Install this package, from the Stable branch:

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

"If apt complains about missing dependencies, install them, then repeat the last two steps (update and install)" If this is happening to you, check the Wine page I left above for additional help.

Now, to install Lutris. You can follow the Lutris page, in the Ubuntu section, here: https://lutris.net/downloads/

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris
sudo apt update
sudo apt install lutris

Now, go to https://lutris.net/ in your browser, login your account (or create, if you don't have one), search for League of Legends (or any other game). For LOL, it's https://lutris.net/games/league-of-legends/

In Standard (Launch Helper) version, click in Install. Read and follow all those instructions to the letter, especially the part: "IMPORTANT: After install, wait for the 2GB download finish, then close the riot client for finish the installation.".

When you finally launch the game, be patient. It may take quite some long minutes to load the client, but if everything went well, it should work fine. :+1:
