I am fairly new to Linux and PlayOnLinux and I just installed LoL through PlayOnLinux which I also installed freshly and the download and installation went well, I followed the provided instructions and now I can not launch the game itself because it is crashing.

Error: The program LolLauncher.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. This may be caused by a problem with the program or a deficiency in Wine.
Detailed error log:
Wine: 1.4.1 according to Wine Configuration
System info:

Does anyone know a fix to this problem? Again, you are talking to a newbie here, so please try to be as understandable and simple. Also, is it any good playing LoL on Mint 16 and is LoL usually followed by lots of bugs and problems on Linux? Is there an easy fix to all this?

Thanks guys, looking forward to your response.

UPDATE: also, here is something that pops up when I am launching PlayOnLinux every time but it still launches well.

PlayOnLinux cannot find 7z (from P7ZIP full)

I tried installing it through terminal and it says:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree      
Reading state information... Done
p7zip is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 256 not upgraded.

I also tried installing dxfullversion from PlayOnLinux as I saw was advised on some other post but no luck.
