Mylyn Trac Connector: accessing web task editor on Linux

Atenção, este blog foi migrado para: http://brunopereira.org

My friend Bairos provides me a Subversion repository and a Trac server, and I use both for personal projects.In my job, our issue tracker is JIRA, and I’m using it with Mylyn for several months. However, just recently i started using Mylyn with Trac, in a project I’m developing at home. The Trac server I’m using doesn’t have the XmlRpc plugin, so I’m not able to use Mylyn’s rich task editor with this server, and I faced some problems using the web task editor inside Eclipse on Linux.

Every time i tried to open the task editor, i was getting the following error message: “Could not create Browser page: XPCOM error -2147221164”. I’m not going to detail my analysis of this error, but I was able to fix it installing the packages xulrunner and xulrunner-gnome-support (I’m not sure if both are needed, though).

From my google searches, I could see that this error happens with a lot of applications on Linux, so probably several people using the Trac Connector with the web task editor on Linux faced the same problem. I hope this tip can help.

Just for the records, my environment here is: MEPIS Linux 7.0, Eclipse 3.3.1 with WTP, JDK 1.6.0_03 32 bits, Mylyn 2.2 and Trac 0.10.4

    Nice to hear that you are using the Trac Connector! It would be great if you could add an entry to the Mylyn FAQ describing the error message and solution:
