Could somebody tell me how to activate it on Wine 1.7.43 with Archlinux? I can't do it because as soon as i hit activate bar games hides, should pop up activation menu but is so small, that only X is vizsible and i can't do anything with it beside killing app. I activated it on Windows but on Archlinux with wine cant because of these activation window that are not displayed properly.
Full screen alt+tabbing
by Hugo Osvaldo Barrera on Saturday March 26th 2011, 10:19
On compiz, if you press alt+enter to run the game fullscreen, and the alt+tab, or use the compiz SCALE plugin to change the current application which has focus, the game freezes. Switching desktops does not always present the same issue.

This seems more compiz-related anyway.
fix for sound
by Uriel Katz on Saturday February 12th 2011, 6:49
in Wine 1.3.6 i had the same choppines problems when using alsa,other options(OSS,etc.) don't work at all and gives a DirectSoundCreateB failed.

to fix choppines in also use:
Hardware acceleration:Emulation
Default Sample rate:22050
Default bits per sample:16

works perfectly
NOT perfect.

Since the 1.3.11 update, sound has not worked for me. Or more accurately, everything sounds like it's been heavily time-stretched. This occurs in full-screen or windowed mode. Changing from ALSA to other sound drivers merely brings up a DirectX error.

I also got a sound problem. I'm on Kubuntu 10.10 and using Wine 1.3.14.
There is just no sound/music comming up during play. All sound files are in the directory and i can play them, but they don't work in-game.

People who got it working - where did you get it?
The Intel app store?

I went there, and the site told me I had to install AppUp to
download the game. Tried that on Wine, but it failed, as it needs
WPF. So I booted into Windows, installed AppUp there, bought the
game, downloaded it and installed it on Windows. Works great there.
AppUp hides the install process from you, but UAE happened to
reveal the path to the installer, which was
mumble Intel mumble download mumble 00.msi. A quick search
located the installer in c:\ProgramData\Intel\....

I then booted back into Linux, did
sudo mkdir /media/c
sudo mount -o ro /dev/sda2 /media/c
wine start /Unix /media/c/ProgramData/Intel/IntelAppStore/download/ff71b9ad-0094-4f8a-8da3-bbc3d025d500.msi

This successfully installed Angry Birds on Wine. But when I try to
run it, it fails with a messagebox saying
The ADP runtime was unable to initialize

Same thing happens if I copy the installed app over.
Seems the AppUp wrapper is doing some DRM, and is unhappy that
some AppUp service is not running.

So, how come you didn't run into this? Can you give me more details
about how you installed?

I downloaded the free demo version on the Rovio store and then bought a key to register it:
