You might have noticed the tabs are a bit bigger in Eclipse than what you’re used to when running Eclipse in Windows.
(This is a minor annoyance, but more screen real estate is always welcome..!)
This is what it would look like before:
You can solve this by creating a custom gtkrc-2.0 file, which should be in your home folder.
Start up your terminal and execute the bold text:
joris@dipshit:~$ nano ~/.gtkrc-2.0
You’re in nano right now, insert the following text in .gtkrc-2.0:
Unfortunatly there’s a small snag when you’re using GWT designer on ubuntu with the libwebkit libs. When libwebkitgtk-1.0.so.2 isn’t found, the GWT designer will display a black field when you’re editing gui items, as shown on the example below:
You can easily solve this by symbolic linking to the already existing libwebkit library. Only execute the commands which are shown in bold:
I’ve been busy trying to get my development environment running on Ubuntu 11.04.
The following error pops up while trying to create a presentation for a bpm variable:

It seems that studio can’t find xulrunner, (a runtime environment developed by the Mozilla Foundation to provide a common back-end for XUL user interface language applications)
The most common solution I could find through Google, is to install xulrunner through the ubuntu repos. Unfortunatly xulrunner 1.8 isn’t in the Natty repos so I had to download it myself.
You can find the latest 1.8 xulrunner here: Mozilla.org xulrunner-126.96.36.199.en-US.linux-i686-20080128.tar.gz
Unpack the contents of xulrunner-188.8.131.52.en-US.linux-i686-20080128.tar.gz
Rename the unpacked xulrunner directory to xulrunner-1.8
Move the newly created xulrunner-1.8 directory to /usr/bin
Fix permissions on the new directory: sudo chmod -R root:root /usr/bin/xulrunner-1.8
Final step is to add the following line to eclipse/eclipse.ini: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.8
After this, you can start your studio and create presentations with no problems!
