This page serves to explain the extra steps that must be taken in order to get the Agile BI plug-in for Pentaho Data Integration (version 4.4.0 or later) to work on Ubuntu 12 (both 32- and 64-bit).

1.  In Ubuntu, go to the Update Manager and select the Settings button.  On the next dialog, select both the Canonical-supported and Community-maintained checkboxes. Click the Close button on each dialog to exit Update Manager.

2.  Open a Terminal and type the following:

sudo apt-get update

3.  Now type the following (and 'Y' when prompted) to install the library:

sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0-0

The necessary files are now installed, you should be able to run Spoon without getting SWT- or library-related errors.

Patching earlier versions

PDI versions before 4.4 need to be patched with both a new swt.jar file (replace libswt/linux/x86/swt.jar or libswt/linux/x86_64/swt.jar) and a new XUL-SWT bridge file in libext/pentaho/pentaho-xul-swt-3.3-SNAPSHOT.jar (remove any other pentaho-xul-swt jar files)

This documentation is maintained by the Pentaho community, and members are encouraged to create new pages in the appropriate spaces, or edit existing pages that need to be corrected or updated.
