For new to linux users running wine, winetricks is just a script that allows installing programs into wine a bit easier. Often places like Microsoft.com moves their files or deletes them when they view them as no longer relevant (too bad they don't do that with windows 8 metro) so because of that winetricks is often having to be updated and most distro repositories do not update it fast enough. To fix this run in terminal whereis winetricks to determine where winetricks is installed and if it is in /usr/bin then run

wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
sudo mv winetricks /usr/bin/winetricks
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/winetricks

then you can run winetricks wininet NOT AS ROOT or with sudo Only unless you know you need to as it will chown some of your .wine directories and files to root access only!

The following is a VERY EASY guide on installing and running LoL on Linux.
(I will be using Ubuntu, but if you modify the code a little bit, it will work for any distro)

Step 1: Install Wine1.4 and Winetricks

code: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
(adds ppa repository of wine)

code: sudo apt-get update
(updates the database/list)

code: sudo apt-get install wine1.3
(installs wine1.4)

code: sudo apt-get install winetricks
(installs winetricks)

Step 2: Install Winetricks Extra Components

code: winetricks vcrun2005
(installs visual c++ 2005)

code: winetricks wininet
(installs inet)

code: winetricks ie6
(installs internet explorer 6)

code: winetricks d3dx9
(installs directx 9)

code: winetricks corefonts
(installs several windows fonts)

code: winetricks adobeair
(installs adobe air)

Step 3: Change Wine1.4 Settings to "Windows 7"

code: winecfg
(opens wine config)

Then, change the Windows Version Setting to "Windows 7"

Step 4: Move a Previous Install of LoL

You should place the folder (Riot Games) into the following location:
(/home/[USER]/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/)

Make sure you replace [USER] with the correct name.
ALSO, .wine is sometimes hidden from view, so you may have to find it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now that you have completed the above tasks, you will now have to open the LoL Launcher. To do that, you will have to type the following two lines of code into a terminal every time you want to play LoL.

code: cd "/home/[USER]/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Riot Games/League of Legends/RADS/system"
(changes directory to where you have LoL folder installed)

code: WINEDEBUG=+ntdll wine "rads_user_kernel.exe" run lol_launcher $(ls ../projects/lol_launcher/releases/) LoLLauncher.exe
(runs program under debug mode)
Hi man, can you make an easy guide, like this one, for mandriva/slackware/archlinux based-distro if u are able to do that? thank you.

This is a really well done guide. If there is an interested I'm currently making executable bash files to run this install and execute the game so it is easier for people to install.
