See the attached screenshot. When I run Angry Birds in any of my browsers, pieces of the game are missing. This desktop is 32bit Xubuntu with the PAE kernel, if that affects anything. I've tried with Chromium, Chrome, and Firefox to no avail.

I have the 64bit version of Xubuntu on my laptop and the game appears to work just fine.

  • Also doesn't render properly on Kubuntu 11.04 32bit Firefox 4.0.1. – lovinglinux May 13 '11 at 0:57
  • What graphics card and drivers are you using? – elmicha May 13 '11 at 6:07
  • It's an Nvidia GeForce 6200 (256MB), I believe. I've got Nvidia's restricted drivers installed. – cmhobbs May 13 '11 at 19:29

Switching to "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 173)" from the "version current" in the Additional Drivers dialog resolved the issue.

  • This is true, but on my Geforce Go 7400 the performance is so bad it is unplayable. – HDave Nov 11 '11 at 19:02

Do you have flash installed? I saw on twitter the other day that flash is used for some parts of the game though the tweet was in relation to ie9 it may be true for other browsers as well.

  • Think that was only for the sound. – Ward Muylaert May 13 '11 at 8:36
  • I believe flash is only used for sound. It's definitely installed. The odd thing is the near identical setup (as far as Xubuntu is concerned) between the two machines. I think I may try running dpkg --get-selections and compare the two. – cmhobbs May 13 '11 at 19:27

There is an SD and an HD version. By default the high-def version was selected. Pick the SD version and it should Just Work.

Ironically, it is MUCH faster in Firefox 6 than in the Chrome browser.
