Follow my step-by-step guide on installing, configuring and optimizing Legendary in Linux with PlayOnLinux.
Note: This guide applies to the Steam version of Legendary. Other versions may require additional steps.
Tips & Specs:
Try SteamPlay before using this guide as Valve now uses a fork of Wine called Proton and should run most Windows games.
