I'm using Fedora, and when I want to fill (or modify) the "Main
Description" or any field using "rich text editor", this does not work.
Any changes are not saw by EPF.
How can I do it ?

We don't support Fedora as such but may be this will help..

-----------------------------------
By default, Firefox 1.x on RedHat and SuSE Linux disables updates to the
browser's status bar. This default setting needs to be changed in order
for the rich text editors to function properly on these platforms. To
change the default setting do the following:
1. Log on with administrative (root) privileges.
2. Locate the firefox.js file by executing the following command: find /
-name firefox.js.
3. Navigate to the directory containing the firefox.js file.
4. Make the firefox.js file writable.
5. Edit the firefox.js file with a text editor and change the security
preference "dom.disable_window_status_change preference" from "false" to
"true". For example: pref("dom.disable_windows_status_change", false);
6. Save and exit.
WARNING: this may expose your system to a security risk. Please consult
your local IT support team for guidance with this issue.
--------------------------------------

Thanks

Thanks for responding.
(My firefox.js file already contains the preference to true)


But, there is something I don't understand.
What is the linkage beetween Firefox and the EPF text editor ?

My editor doesn't work on either EPF 1.0.2 and 1.2M2. I am running Linux
fedora 6.

I have modified my firefox.js as you have recommended, but it hasn't
solved the problem.

My system doesn't have a libwidget_gtk.so, but it does have
libwidget_gtk2.so.

Thanks in advance ...

or even better yet, open a bugzilla with that exception stack [And add
enhancement request for support for Fedora], I will see whether I can find
any local person to help you with the issue.

Thanks

Here is the fix for Fedora 7 and epf 1.2.0 M2 ...

Exadel Studio pro (which free and soon to be opensourced) contain their
own MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME libraries. I downloaded the latest Exadel studio
(ExadelStudioPro-4.0.4a). I then started epf with a shell script:

-----
#!/bin/sh

export
MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/home/snowch/opt/ExadelStudioPro-4.0.4a/ec lipse/plugins/com.exadel.vpe.mozilla.gtk_2.0.4/os/linux/x86/

../epf
