What is wrong with this article? --Rabcor (talk) 16:48, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

The main problem is that the article is not well organized. For example, with three troubleshooting sections it looks like you have multiple articles in one. This makes it harder to find potential solutions in the article. The actual section, League_of_Legends#Troubleshooting/Tips is not sorted and a simple bulleted list. Some sections are similarly spread out, e.g those in League_of_Legends#Wine_Method.
This doesn't mean you should create several articles; for an example article that includes "methods", yet is still well organized, see OpenRC. -- Alad (talk) 17:10, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Wine-patch for PKGBUILD Not sure if this should get merged into the article, but this would be the patch for the current PKGBUILD to incorporate the mentioned wine-patch. -- Dustball (talk) 15:13, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Enable native PlayOnLinux wine versions

To use the wine versions shipped by POL add a conf file to /etc/ containing the path to the wine lib directory.

e.g. /home/<user>/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.7.19-LeagueOfLegends2/lib

Then run ldconfig -v to refresh and play without building your own wine.

Without this was missing.

Login Error - The login server did not respond.

I have this problem again now with these wine versions:

  • 1.7.19-LeagueOfLegends2, /home/user/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.7.19-LeagueOfLegends2/lib is set in /etc/
  • 1.7.28, lib32-gnutls is installed

Both do not work and show the error when I try to login. I do not know what to do now.

Since while starting the game through playonlinux it complained about a missing lib, I have also installed lib32-gnome-keyring. The error disappeared, but no joy either.

p11-kit: couldn't load module: /usr/lib32/pkcs11/ /usr/lib32/pkcs11/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I just have found the solution: the wininet.dll that is installed automatically via playonlinux breaks it -- so just remove it:

mv ~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/windows/system32/wininet.dll ~

Connection Error: connection failure unable to connect to the server

Authentication and logging in works, however the connection then fails with the abovementioned error. I don't know how to fix it yet. Any suggestions are welcome.

Found a comment at [1] Try disabling the tcp timestamps. It worked for me.

# echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_timestamps

Thank you, that did it.

Texture patch

Moved from article. -- Alad (talk) 15:02, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

The Texture Patch is reportedly no longer required for the in-game store to work properly, I haven't tested the game without using the texture patch, so I'm leaving this here if by any chance it is still needed. 22:46, 13 April 2015‎ Rabcor

Article structure

I think that all the installation methods should be in one section called Installation. Additionally, game description should be added in the introduction and the information about version removed or placed in another section.
