For some reason that I still have not been able to determine, I can no longer open Aptana Studio on my Ubuntu box. The splash screen displays, then nothing. Aptana closes. No error. No nothing. I think it has something to do with the JRE and/or XULRunner versions. Not sure. I used it one day, but couldn’t use it the next.
I checked my shell script that launches Aptana:
#!/bin/sh MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/xulrunner export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME /home/les/Aptana20/AptanaStudio
After some research, I changed the script.
#!/bin/sh MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/lib/xulrunner if [ $LD_LIBRARY_PATH ]; then LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH else LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME fi export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH /home/les/Aptana20/AptanaStudio
After changing the script, Aptana still would not open. I did not know what to do. I finally decided to bypass my shell script, so I opened terminal and navigated to my Aptana folder and typed:
Aptana Studio launched without a problem. While this is not ideal, I spent three hours trying to find a solution. Now I have to do some work.
