Look, this is a quick and nasty, but at the end of this one you will have a cool angry birds quicklauncher in your Unity sidebar and clicking it will launch Angry Birds Beta in a Chromium App window.

What You Need

You need to install Chromium Browser.

sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

THEN STEP BY STEP

LOOK AN ANGRY BIRDS LAUNCHER IN UBUNTU UNITY!!! CAN IT BE!?!?!?You need to create your Unity Launcher.

Get yourself a nice angry birds icon and if you want you can put it in /home/youruser/.local/share/pixmaps/

Then, go to /home/youruser/.local/share/applications/ and create a file called “angrybirds.desktop”

In there enter the text below:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Name=Angry Birds
Exec=chromium-browser --app="http://chrome.angrybirds.com"
Terminal=false
Icon=/home/quintin/.local/share/pixmaps/angrybirds.png
Type=Application
Categories=Network;WebBrowser;

And save that badboy.

Once done, drag the .desktop file to your Unity sidebar.

Click.

AND THEN IT IS ON LIKE DONKEY CONG! Well, like Angry Birds at least.

Conclusion

Angry Birds the browser game still runs a bit lot slow.

But at least now you have a one click browser game in your unity launcher :)

Like I said, quick and nasty, but fun.
