Any help please?


cd "/home/shannon/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Riot Games/League of Legends/RADS/system"

Exactly how you see it in here.

code: WINEDEBUG=+ntdll wine "rads_user_kernel.exe" run lol_launcher $(ls ../projects/lol_launcher/releases/) LoLLauncher.exe
(runs program under debug mode)

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04. I get stuck here, everything else worked like a charm. I entered the command and the launcher did not pop up. I'm not really sure what happened, there's like a million different lines of text in the terminal. I tried another method which did manage to get the launcher up.. but that one didn't work because something called pmb.exe kept crashing over and over again and I had to kill the process.

All my close friends play league and keep telling me to get windows, but I'd much prefer to just play through linux without using a VM or dual boot setup. I've tried both in the past to some degree of success for other games, but they just aren't worth it to me. I don't want to pirate windows software either. Playing this game isn't do-or-die, I'd sooner just forget about it. Would be great if I could manage to get it to work though... I've got this obnoxious dumbass friend who keeps telling me that there is LoL for linux and it's easy to get, and he knows many people who use it. Man would I just love to shove a boot down his throat, he's never used linux in his life and yet thinks I'm just some lazy chump. >>

Hmm nevermind then. I just ran
WINEDEBUG=-all wine "rads_user_kernel.exe" run lol_launcher $(ls ../projects/lol_launcher/releases/) LoLLauncher.exe

and it worked. I found that code from another tutorial, I noticed it's basically the same steps as this one, except this command has a couple differences. Anyway cheers for the help, could never figure this stuff out without some thorough instructions

One problem I am having: I cannot log on. It says the server is busy. Is this a client side or Linux side problem?

Although it does work for me, I find I have to re-open the launcher sometimes up to 20 times before it finally works; it either gets stuck on 0 or 33% of the patcher. I also always get a box that says PMB.exe has crashed -- I just ignore it and everything is fine, but it bugs me why that happens and what PMB actually contributes too if the game still runs without it. Anyway, is there any solution? It doesn't bother me so much except that after a couple games it starts to bog down and get laggy, so I have no choice but to exit and restart. With people waiting for me, it's a huge inconvenience. But I'll survive with it if there's no fix I guess

I'm guessing I'm not the only one with this problem, so if anyone else has it then you're not alone. And if anyone feels that this guide doesn't work, just try opening the launcher a ton of times and you might get there lol.

I keep getting:

Quote:

err:dbghelp:pe_load_dbg_file Couldn't find .DBG file "dll\\wininet.dbg" ("&quot

when I try to login, I reran the winetricks command to grab wininet and it says it's installed. I checked in winecfg as well and it's showing up. Not sure what the issue is. Anyone had this issue?
