SWT Error in Eclipse on Firefox 3 RC1 update

June 18, 2008 at 5:34 pm Leave a comment

Apparently, Eclipse has this weird dependency on Firefox through the SWT library.  After upgrading to Firefox 3 RC1 on Ubuntu 8.04 due to Firebug not working, Eclipse started throwing an SWT error with the following log in <workspace>/.metadata/.log file:

org.eclipse.swt.SWTException:
Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError:
No more handles (java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError:
no swt-mozilla-gtk-3349 or swt-mozilla-gtk in 
swt.library.path, java.library.path or the jar file))

Luckily, I’m not alone and bearfruit.org suggests solving the problem by typing:

sudo apt-get install xulrunner

or

sudo apt-get install xulrunner-gnome-support

on console, restart Eclipse, and problem solved.
