Agile BI on Ubuntu 12.10

(Adapted from AgileBI on CentOS 6)

AgileBI (as part of PDI 4.4) does not work on Ubuntu 12.10 (Or Linux Mint 14) out-of-the box. AgileBI relies on SWT 3.7 which requires xulrunner-1.9.2

You need to add the following Lucid Lynx repositories to your repositories in synaptic: 

   deb lucid main
   deb lucid-security main

After adding the repositories, close synaptic and run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xulrunner-1.9.2

Now we need to tell Spoon that we want to specify the xulrunner path. Open <data-integration folder>/ in a text editor like gedit.

  $ gedit <data-integration-home>/
#add 2 VM arguments to the OPT var: -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.DefaultType=mozilla -Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME

Launch Spoon:

  cd <data-integration-home>
