    Hi,

    I got a new computer now running 64 bit ubuntu.
    When I start rsswol I get the following message:
    RSSOwl was unable to create a browser for reading new
    s. Please refer to the FAQ for further help.

    I already tried the FAQ and modified the rssowl.ini which now looks like:

    -vmargs
    -Xms15m
    -Xmx192m
    -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5
    -Djava.util.Arrays.useLegacyMergeSort=true
    -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla
    -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=/usr/lib/rssowl/xulrunner

    I've tried to download xulrunner 1.9.2 and modified the last line above accordingly, with the same result.

    Any ideas?
    P.S.: Sorry, wrong sub forum but I can not move it

    Please can someone add details of the hack mentioned in the previous post to the site (http://www.rssowl.org/help#item_6j). This information is far too valuable to be buried in a forum.
