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: # # SIGSEGV (0xb) at pc=0x00007fb2229d45a0, pid=8150, tid=140404439688960 # # JRE version: 6.0_37-b06 # Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.12-b01 mixed mode linux-amd64 compressed oops) # Problematic frame: # C [libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0+0x14245a0] void WTF::freeOwnedGPtr<_GdkEvent>(_GdkEvent*)+0x15df0 # # An error report file with more information is saved as: # /home/ipcreeper/hs_err_pid8150.log # # If you would like to submit a bug report, please visit: # http://java.sun.com/webapps/bugreport/crash.jsp # The crash happened outside the Java Virtual Machine in native code. # See problematic frame for where to report the bug. #

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

sudo dpkg -i xulrunner-1.9.2_220.127.116.11+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.11.04.1_amd64.deb
Be aware that both libhunspell and xulrunner should be either i386 or amd64 version.
Open eclipse.ini and add path to installed xulrunner:
If editor still not running, try to set the environment variable GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS to false before starting Eclipse. Do it with following command:
