I have an application that is using the flag to force the use of the WebKit
browser on Linux (org.eclipse.swt.browser.UseWebKitGTK=true). This seems to
work great on my Fedora 12 installation but always fails over to XULRunner
on my Fedora 14 installation.

After further investigation, both Fedora releases include WebKit. Fedora 12
has WebKit 1.2 and Fedora 14 has WebKit 1.3. According to the SWT FAQ,
either should work since they are 1.2+.

Both releases have their WebKit libraries on the library search path:
The 12 release has libwebkit-1.0.so.2 and libwebkit-1.0.so.2.17.1 in
/usr/lib.
The 14 release has libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0.5.2, libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0,
libwebkitgtk-3.0.so.0.0.1, and libwebkitgtk-3.0.so.0 in /usr/lib.

For kicks, I also tried pointing sym links from libwebkit-1.0.so.2 to
libwebkitgtk-3.0.so.0.0.1 and libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.0 without any success in
either case.

Does anyone know what's going on here? Has anyone gotten the SWT Browser to
run with WebKit 1.3 on Linux? I have tried with SWT 3.6.1, 3.6.2, and the
latest stable build of 3.7 with the exact same results in all cases.

Thanks.

James

I think WebKitGTK 1.3 broke ABI compatibility w.r.t. WebKitGTK 1.2, this
will be investigated for the current milestone. The report for this
(contrary to what its title may imply) is
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=343454 , so you can CC
yourself there to receive updates on its progress.
