This can be seen as a sort of follow-up of my previous post, Eclipse internal Web Browser in Ubuntu Lucid: after installing Kubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04 the internal browser of Eclipse stopped working. In particular, when using Mylyn Gerrit connector (relying on OpenID authentication, which requires the eclipse internal browser) I got this error
org.eclipse.swt.SWTException: Failed to execute runnable (org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles [Unknown Mozilla path (MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME not set)])and indeed, by looking at the preferences corresponding to the Web browser I cannot select the internal browser:
has been dropped since Oneiric!
Fortunately, we can rely on another package:
sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0and you'll enjoy Eclipse internal web browser again! :)
