Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online Luncher.

Project homepage: Lotro Linux

This is ebuild for Lord Of Rings OnLine and Dungenons and Dragons OnLine Linux Luncher.

I wrote this ebuild myself to let me play my favorite game in my favorite system. This ebuild is also availble on gentoo bugs system, I uploaded it here.

You have to be in games group to use this luncher. Just run:

gpasswd -a your_user games

To learn more how to lunch the game using wine or crossover visit crossover game raport or wine game raport.

To use this ebuild run following commands in terminal:

echo "=games-rpg/pylotro-0.1.14" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
emerge -av =games-rpg/pylotro-0.1.14
