I'm not sure if this is an issue with Oomph, general Eclipse, KDE, or something else:
I am running the eclipse installer on Kubuntu. It has created a *.desktop file to register the "eclipse+installer" protocol handler, which is set to run eclipse-inst %u , where %u stands for the URL.
When I click on the Launch... link on https://www.eclipse.org/setups/installer/?url=https://git.eclipse.org/c/justj/justj.tools.git/plain/releng/org.eclipse.justj.tools.releng/JustJConfiguration.setup&show=true I get a dialog to select the application (Eclipse Installer is pre-selected), and when I confirm nothing happens.
Same when I run
eclipse-inst eclipse+installer:https://git.eclipse.org/c/justj/justj.tools.git/plain/releng/org.eclipse.justj.tools.releng/JustJConfiguration.setup

from the command line.
However, when I add an additional argument (e.g., "-consoleLog", or even just a "-") before the URL the eclipse installer starts and applies the configuration from the URL as expected:
Working command line:
eclipse-inst - eclipse+installer:https://git.eclipse.org/c/justj/justj.tools.git/plain/releng/org.eclipse.justj.tools.releng/JustJConfiguration.setup

Opening "eclipse+installer" links works if I apply this fix to the .desktop file.
Does anybody have an idea what may be going on?

No, that seems strange. I know I got this working on Ubuntu and I don't expect the installer application should process command line arguments differently in your case. The processing is done here:

https://git.eclipse.org/c/oomph/org.eclipse.oomph.git/tree/plugins/org.eclipse.oomph.setup.installer/src/org/eclipse/oomph/setup/internal/installer/InstallerApplication.java#n245

So I would need to try this out again on my virtual box to see which arguments actually arrive at the application after the Eclipse launcher argument processing has stripped the arguments that it recognizes. Please open a Bugzilla, though I can't promise to look at it quickly. Probably I'll need run the Tycho build locally to produce the product and use remote debugging to see how the arguments are arriving...
