xulrunner issue on Linux - MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME - FIXED

I have run into an issue with xulrunner 1.9 on my Linux box. I am running Ubuntu Lucid (10.04), and I have the same issue everytime I bring up the Eclipse client and try to modify a work item. It keeps causing my Eclipse shell to throw errors with some strange advice about defining MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME. So I went in and changed my startup shell with this:

export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2.12

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME


It didn't help. So today I took an upgrade to the xulrunner package, and took on xulrunner 1.9.2.13 (1.9.2.13+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.10.04.1). My problem has magically disappeared! if you are seeing the same types of issues, I suggest that you get to xulrunner 1.9.2.13, and see if it fixes your issues.

The only way I got this to work on my Lucid installation was to use Synaptic Package Manager and install the "eclipse" package (currently 3.5.2-2ubuntu4.2). Next time I started RTC I no longer got the xulrunner error.

I resolved a problem like this by installing the 32-bit version of xulrunner
