Hi,

since upgrading to Ubuntu 13.10, I can't start a Juno IDE anymore. The
4.2 SDK crashes immediately on startup with a libwebgtk error (see
below). Eclipse 4.3 starts normally, it only crashes when an internal
browser is opened, but that's nothing new :(

I've heard that libwebgtk issues might be related to google-talkplugin.
So I tried to remove this package, but the crash on 4.2 startup remains.

Does anybody else has the same problem? Any hints how older Eclipse
version can be run on Ubuntu 13.10?

Thanks, Ralf

This error looks like
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=392967, which was fixed in
the 4.3 release. I don't think you'll be able to get Eclipse/SWT 4.2 to
work in your environment, as the root cause of this crash was in
WebKitGTK and the Browser's fix in 4.3 was to trigger extraneous native
events to work around it.

When 4.3 crashes for you I suspect you're seeing a different problem.
My guess would be https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=400626
since many others are seeing it as well. If you look to the bottom of
this report you'll see that it appears to be fixed in more recent
WebKitGTK releases, though I have not personally confirmed this.

Thanks for these pointers, Grant! I've managed to work around the
problem by adding this property to my eclipse.ini:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla

There are some issues with the internal browser such as missing icons
but at least no crashes.
