Linux workaround for metrics and OSLC linking

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

The IBM Rational Rhapsody RCP Browser requires a compatible XULRunner on Linux.

Symptom

HTML content not displaying correctly.


Cause

RCP Browser requires a compatible XULRunner for proper display of HTML content on Linux.

Environment

Mozilla browser running on Linux operating systems

Resolving the problem

Procedure:

  1. Download and extract file xulrunner-10.0.4esr.en-US.linux-i686.tar.bz2

    Note: The extraction creates a directory called xulrunner.

  2. Create a directory structure called defaults/preferences in the xulrunner folder.

  3. In the preferences folder, create a file called prefs.js and add the following line in the file:

    pref("security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy", false);

    Note: Insert a carriage return after this line.

  4. Make the following flag updates to the Rational Rhapsody .INI file:

    Note: This is the .INI file for Rational Rhapsody, not Rational Rhapsody Design Manager.
    (~/.mw.8.1/rhapsody.exe.ini, where ~ is your home directory.)
    1. General::APPLICATION_ROOT must point to your installation directory.
      For example:

      [General]
      APPLICATION_ROOT=/disk1/users1/userjomy/Desktop/Install_8001


    2. General::XULRunnerPath must point to the path of your XULRunner installation directory
      For example:

      [General]
      XULRunnerPath=/disk1/users1/userjomy/Desktop/xulrunner


      Note:
      You can also use the project property General::WebBrowser::RCPBrowserParams to set the XULRunner path.
