*Q : Visual Editor does not start under Linux*
*A* : Linux users may need to do the following to get the visual editor to work correctly on their machines.
* The Visual Page Editor (before JBoss Tools 3.1.0.M4) requires the library libstdc++.so.5. This library is contained in the compat-libstdc++-33.i386 package.
** To install this package on Fedora Core or Red Hat Enterprise Linux run the following command:
** On any other rpm based distributions download libstdc++.so.5 and run the following command:
** On Debian and Debian based distributions (e.g. Ubuntu) run the following command:
* In case you have the library installed and you still have issue with starting the visual page editor then close all browser views/editors and leave one visual page editor open and restart eclipse. This should force a load of the right XULRunner viewer.
*Q: Visual Editor doesn't start at any platform and shows message* 'The VPE editor can't be run because your system environment needs to be changed slightly'
* check is you version of studia/tools is compatible with you version of eclipse, see compatible matrix http://community.jboss.org/docs/DOC-14297
*Q : Visual Editor starts OK, but next message dialog appears:*
*A* : Some functionality of Visual Editor may not work if a project doesn't have org.jboss.tools.jsf.jsfnature or org.jboss.tools.jst.web.kb.kbnature in .project configuration. To fix this problem and turn off the message box execute next steps:
* Right mouse button click on a project in Package Explorer.
* Select +Configure -> Add JSF Capabilities+ from the context menu.
* Configure your project using +Add JSF Capabilities+ wizard and press Finish.
*P. S.* If you are shure that your project does not need JSF capabilities, just disable this message box by checking "+Do not show this dialog again!+" checkbox.
*Q :* Visual Part doesn't start and "XPCOM error -2147467259" are showed
*A :* Something bad happened with build in xulrunner. To check it you should:
* Go to Eclipse -> Help -> About -> Installation Details... ->  Configuration 
* find org.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath and open this path in terminal
* try xulrunner.exe -version or ./xulrunner -version and it should show what is need for XR to work
