Eclipse crashes with xulrunner 2.x

Hi, just installed latest eclipse. It crashed all the time, so I did a bit research:

http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browserlinux

Eclipse 3.6.x and newer:
Mozilla 1.4 GTK2 - 1.7.x GTK2
XULRunner 1.8.x - 1.9.2.x
WebKitGTK+ 1.2.0 and newer

Here the solution: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=115543

since gnome3 the webkit library name changed from libwebkit-1.0.so to libwebkitgtk-1.0.so, so I did
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s libwebkitgtk-1.0.so libwebkit-1.0.so.2
and
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true
works again

Can u add this to the wiki? -- Der harm 20:16, 6 May 2011 (EDT)

No; please read FIX/FILE BUGS don't IGNORE. -- pointone 22:54, 6 May 2011 (EDT)
Well this workaround has just been added: what now? I'm not against it, although it could be explained much better and report a link to the forum thread. -- Kynikos 05:43, 14 May 2011 (EDT)
That workaround does not involve symlinking different so versions, which was my main objection. Users should never be told to do that. -- pointone 14:38, 16 May 2011 (EDT)
Ah that makes sense, I've understood now. -- Kynikos 15:02, 16 May 2011 (EDT)

Sun JDK

This section was added in 2009: I would replace it with a link to Java, agree?

Is this trick still needed? If not I'll remove it. (Or move it to Java?)

Removed. From Java: The open-source version is nearly perfect at the time of writing, and there is mostly no need anymore to install Oracle's proprietary version of Java." -- Fengchao (talk) 09:28, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
