GWT Designer for Eclipse Juno on Ubuntu 12.X

Today I’ve tried to install Google Eclipse Plugin to draw some forms for my GWT-based app and caught the exception:

GWT http-server started at 127.0.0.1:45658
#
# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

Searching for at least an hour I’ve finally found the solution:

 

Step 1:

Download and install libhunspell package (xulrunner has a dependency on it):

http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/amd64/libhunspell-1.2-0/download

sudo dpkg -i libhunspell-1.2-0_1.2.14-4_amd64.deb

Step 2:

Download and install xulrunner package:

http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/amd64/xulrunner-1.9.2/download

sudo dpkg -i xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.28+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.1_amd64.deb

Be aware that both libhunspell and xulrunner should be either i386 or amd64 version.

Step 3:

Open eclipse.ini and add path to installed xulrunner:
-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2.28

Step 4:

If editor still not running, try to set the environment variable GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS to false before starting Eclipse. Do it with following command:

export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=false
