Eclipse crashes with xulrunner 2.x

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

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:

since gnome3 the webkit library name changed from to, so I did
# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s
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)
