Jboss tools Visual Editor does not start under Linux

I found this which solves problem. http://www.jboss.org/community/docs/DOC-10862

Q : Visual Editor does not start under Linux


A : Linux users may need to do the following to get the visual editor to work correctly on their machines.


  • The Visual Page Editor requires the library libstdc+.so.5. This library is contained in the compat-libstdc+-33.i386 package.


    • To install this package on Fedora Core or Red Hat Enterprise Linux run the following command:

yum install compat-libstdc++-33.i386


    • On any other rpm based distributions download libstdc++.so.5 and run the following command:

rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-33.i386


    • On Debian and Debian based distributions (e.g. Ubuntu) run the following command:

apt-get install libstdc++5


  • In case you have the library installed and you still have issue with starting the visual page editor then close all browser views/editors and leave one visual page editor open and restart eclipse. This should force a load of the right XULRunner viewer.
