How to install RTC Eclipse Client on Linux Mint 14

Alejandro Nunez (241811) | asked Dec 22 '12, 11:46 p.m.
Is it possible to install RTC Eclipse Client v3.0.1.5 on Linux Mint 14? 
I downloaded the RTC Client for Linux installation package but when I try to run Eclipse executable it simply does anything.

It is probably related to using a 32 bit version of eclipse on a 64 bit OS
See for some info on fixing that problem.

Are you running the command from a shell? If not doing that might return an error message.

 I have RTC 4.0.1 running on Mint 14. The main issue would be what Karl has posted and the article he linked provides the solution. The article also links to the Eclipse SWT FAQ that goes into more detail about not having XULrunner.

Personally, I have Eclipse 3.8.1 with RTC 4.0.1 installed using p2. I have a XULrunner version that is compatible with Eclipse 3.8.1 (compatible versions are listed in the SWT FAQ). Then I edit my eclipse.ini file to point Eclipse to that version of XULrunner.

If you are using a 64 bit version of Eclipse, you'll need a 64 bit version of XULrunner. From what I've found, mozilla doesn't have the 64 bit version in the stable release section. You have to get it from the archived nightly builds. (

Don't think Linux Mint is supported. Look here:
