Try entering your key in ~/.prey/base/preykey (it's just a plaintext file).

To get this to work, on my current X64 install anyways, cd /opt/prey and mv{,.bak}. Works fine now, though it asks for the cd key everytime I run it, which does kind of suck.

I was able to get it to work by removing (or renaming) /opt/prey/, creating a symlink to /usr/lib32/ in /opt/prey (lib32-sdl needs to be installed), and removing (or commenting out) the part in /opt/prey/prey where it sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH This will cause it to use the system libraries instead of the ones that come with it.

lib32-openal & lib32-libpulse are installed. The symlink was created. But Prey does not work :(

Installing lib32-openal and symlinking /usr/lib32/ to /opt/prey/ fixes the OpenAL issue. Installing lib32-alsa-plugins (and lib32-libpulse if using PulseAudio) fixes the SDL issue. Also, make sure to install 32bit video drivers. In Rikles case, lib32-intel-dri.

@Rikles: I see an OpenAL error- Maybe the lib32-openal package is required?
