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)
Ah that makes sense, I've understood now. -- Kynikos 15:02, 16 May 2011 (EDT)


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)

Javadoc section out of date

The section on javadoc is dated. Openjdk is the default install now, and the wiki references Sun. The default eclipse install points to the Oracle download location for javadoc. Not sure if this works with openjdk yet. Alternative is to install the api docs into /usr/share/doc/, but this would require package change.
