Help Installing League of Legends Linux Mint 14 Post #3

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am getting my feet wet in Linux and decided to go with Linux Mint 14 with Cinnamon Desktop. So far it is very nice and I feel like I can enjoy it a lot. Certain things definitely take a lot longer to do compared to Windows, but hey, with grace comes work. I have been having issues installing the latest AMD Catalyst(13.1) drivers for Linux Mint 14. I am not sure if it is due to the fact that Nadia is not in full support yet or if I am just doing something wrong. So I ran across the following steps, but I wanted to confirm that this would work as it says that this is for Ubuntu 12.10(Quantal Quetzal) and not Linux Mint 14(Nadia).
Quote:
1. Open a terminal window.

2. Type in the following commands then hit Enter after each.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fglrx-installer

3. Type in the following commands then hit Enter to remove the xorg-edgers ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Alternatively, would I lose geek cred for installing it by just downloading the latest driver from here and just right clicking the .run file and selecting properties and checking to run it as an executable? smile.gif

I'm going to start from scratch tonight to undo anything bad that I may have done unknowingly.
Thanks in advance. I'll most likely use this thread for multiple questions/issues, so if you guys could subscribe that would be awesome! thumb.gif

Linux Mint is built off of Ubuntu, so most of the instructions will be cross compatible. As long as you aren't using Debian Edition that is, then things tend to be even less compatible.

I would personally go the PPA way, let the package manager deal with it. If you go the manual route, then anytime your kernel updates, xorg updates, or any major system that it relies on, then you'll have to manually update the graphics driver each time. Becomes a pain and is for the most part against the point of having a package manager. The package manager is one of the things that sets Linux apart from Windows, no manual updating for any programs, ever.

Well all is good so far. I have installed my ATI drivers as well as got 3 monitors working. I was able to get steam installed and am installing TF2 at this time. One other issue I have been running into, and this seems to be a big one, is I do play League of Legends. It is not integrated into Wine yet, but there are people who have it working. I was wondering if there is anyone here who has got it working and might be able to give some hints on how they did so. I followed the guide below and I got it installed but it is not running.
