If League of Legends runs on your computer, you probably noticed that some artifacts do not have an icon in the in-game shop ("red squares").

Until a better fix is found, here's a workaround; You'll need to have [b]git[/b] installed:
- clone LoL Linux Tools:
$ git clone git://
- enter the git repository and adjust LoL install path:
$ cd LoL-Linux-Tools
$ sed -i -e "s@lol_path = './'@lol_path = '$HOME/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends'@"
Now run the replacement of icons with versions supported by Wine:
$ python texture_patch

Patch applied Successfully!
It takes several minutes, but you should now have all icons working.

PS. You cannot do that just after LoL installation, it must have been updated first.

This procedure has since been automated, just install the beta script "League of Legends : ingame shop icons fix" from Patches category.

It works without problem for me, thank you :)

Are there any other steps to be done before patching with LLT?
Any special PoL settings?

I tried patching several times with no results - red squares are still there.

However, if I run it with repair option, I receive a lot of Bad File: DATA/... entries

Any suggestions would be appriciated

I've found instructions to fix the issue (not sure from where, maybe, tried them, it worked, so I shared my finding. Actually I just noticed that xpander already mentionned that tool in those forums:

Anyway, for any support, better check with the author.

Thanks petch, I'll give it one more try

Since it seems this situation is here to stay, I made a patch script out of it:

It worked, thanks!
Though you should warn users that this patch will use about ~3-5 gigabytes of space while processing.

Thanks, updated the script description.

I get an error all the time :(

EDIT: Looks like I had to use the "real" path. (.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/)

Use the install script, don't bother running it manually anymore:
Install button > check "Testing" checkbox > Patches > "League of Legends: ingame shop icons fix"
nullguy Dimanche 5 Mai 2013 à 12:58

Install script from PlayOnLinux does not work at all, it downloads the files and nothing happens after.
I've reinstalled LoL recently, and after that running script manually doesn't work. It says that patch applied successfully, but red squares are still in game.
I had hard disk failure though, and some system files were corrupted, that might have caused this issue.
EDIT: I get this in terminal - /home/myusername/.PlayOnLinux//install: line 56: Default: command not found
What to do?
petch Dimanche 5 Mai 2013 à 13:45

Ah, it seems $POL_TERM only exists since PlayOnLinux 4.1.2
I modified the script to default to xterm, but it needs testing (time to reinstall LoL once again :p)
nullguy Dimanche 5 Mai 2013 à 14:42

Now it gives this at start
[POL_Bash] Message: POL GPG : Good signature - League of Legends: ingame shop icons fix
/home/myusername/.PlayOnLinux//install: line 23: POL_SetupWindow_SetID: command not found
And this after downloading:

/home/myusername/.PlayOnLinux//install: line 57: Default: command not found

EDIT: My PlayOnLinux version is 4.1.1, should i try to update it to 4.2.1?

nullguy Dimanche 5 Mai 2013 à 15:09

With 4.2.1 it works exactly same as manual version, still no result.
Guess it's a problem with my system.
petch Dimanche 5 Mai 2013 à 16:55

The line now goes like this:
SHELL=/bin/bash ${POL_TERM:-xterm} -e "./ texture_patch || read -p 'Press enter to continue'"

Since you're now using 4.2.1 on a Debian based distribution, $POL_TERM should contain x-terminal-emulator; What does update-alternatives --config x-terminal-emulator display?
petch Vendredi 10 Mai 2013 à 23:26

I disabled the script until a copy of is found...
petch Samedi 11 Mai 2013 à 12:40

Fixed, using a DATA.tar.gz from my own harddrive :)
Meanwhile the original file is back, but for safety we'll keep using a local copy.
Veterini Lundi 20 Mai 2013 à 12:28

Le script ne fonctionne pas chez moi...

PlayOnLinux debbuging tool (v4.1.1)

La dernière ligne indique le début d'un téléchargement, mais rien ne se lance apparemment.
Une idée ?

(this is the english forum by the way)
I fixed a bug in the script that prevented it from really switch from, but I'm not sure if that could be the reason for what you're experiencing...
