I strongly recommend against using Chromium if you care about Linux. It's not ready yet and will simply not work on Wayland (default on most modern distros).

To use the Chromium libraries from the Eclipse SDK:

Install the CEF binaries in Eclipse from the p2 repo - CEF p2 repo
from Make technology
Add the required jars to classpath of project:

SWT-Chromium fragment (org.eclipse.swt.browser.chromium.<ws>.<os>.<arch>.jar)
SWT fragment (org.eclipse.swt.<ws>.<os>.<arch>.jar)
CEF binary (com.make.chromium.cef.<ws>.<os>.<arch>.jar)

I thought the chromium support has been added to SWT? Do we also have
Eclipse update sites for the binaries?

Best regards, Lars
