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: 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)

Use plugins manager as root
After upgrading to Eclipse 3.7 from 3.6.2 I apparently lost all my user-installed plugins, because they get stored in ~/.eclipse/[version-dependent-folder]. I would recommend to manage plugins as root user with:
This installs them safely in /usr/share/eclipse/plugins/.
Does somebody think this can be dangerous in any way and I shouldn't add it as a warning? I can't think of an alternative except using official/AUR packages.
