Can't Preview reports on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS [message #1240628] Thu, 06 February 2014 21:44
Eclipse UserFriend
Just installed a fresh /eclipse-reporting-kepler-SR1-linux-gtk-x86_64
from the downloads on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

While the Welcome screen, Help contents, and displaying a html page in
the internal browser works, But if I try to run or preview new (blank)
BIRT report design I get

org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles [Could not detect registered
XULRunner to use]
at org.eclipse.swt.SWT.error(

I have spent over a day fiddling with various combinations of xulrunner
versions and the many Eclipse program properties like:


I can modify the error if I use the


org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: XPCOM error 0x80004005
at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Mozilla.error(
at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Mozilla.initXULRunner(
at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Mozilla.create(
at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Browser.<init>(
at ...

I can also use the Report Design.Preview.Always Use External Browsers
user preference to get around my failure to Run reports with the
internal browser by running on external browsers - but have not found a
way to get the preview to work.

Anyone running eclipse-reporting-kepler-SR1 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bit
that has got this to work?
