I had a working installation of 2.1.2 on Linux Mint 13. This is the only Linux
install where RSSOwl has worked for me.
I copied the /usr/bin/rssowl file, the ~/.rssowl and /usr/lib/rssowl
directories from that installation to my CentOS installation. I am still
receiving the missing browser error.
I have added
"-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=./usr/lib/rssowl/xulrunner" to both
the /usr/bin/rssowl script and I've tried adding it to ./rssowl in a terminal.
No go. Same error message.
I remain with no explanation of why RSSOwl will so persistently not run, and
why the release notes and the FAQ contradict each other about xulrunner.
Did you try the .zip files from
http://www.rssowl.org/download ? Seems like
the package you installed is corrupt (wrong dependencies).
And if that does not work, try that from #3 on https://sourceforge.net/projec

The version of lubhunspell installed by CenTOS is 1.2. That's the correct
version. No need to to fake RSSOwl out with a link.
I have installed RSSOwl on several versions of Linux, from repositories and
from rssowl.org. With the exception of the Mint install which came from the
Getdeb site, they have all failed to work, in the same way.
Do you have the correct architecture? (of RSSOwl, your Java Installation and

I have RSSOwl running on Fedora 17 which should be similar to RHEL/CentOS –
the only thing I needed to change was the libhunspell version.
OK, installed RSSOwl from the download link to a new Fedora 17 install. Made
the libhunspell link. Refuses to launch, producing this error:
/RSSOwl: /lib/ld-linux.so.2: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory
Seems like the architecture of RSSOwl, your Java Installation and your Fedora
do not match. They have to be the same all together. If you have multiple
architecture software, make sure that the correct one is used.
