                        <question>How can I configure logging in the editor?</question>
                        <answer>
                                <p>To get log4j to read your own configuration when developing the editor or 
                                        (which is mostly the log4j.properties in cdmlib-commons as it will be the 
                                        first one it encounters).</p>
                                <p>Passing the following argument to the Virtual Machine however does the trick:</p>
-                               <source>-Dlog4j.configuration=file:///&lt;path to your personal\&gt;/log4j.properties</source>
+                               <source>-Dlog4j.configuration=file:///&lt;path to your personal&gt;/log4j.properties</source>
                                <p>If you run into trouble , you can debug log4j's startup sequence by passing 
                                        another argument to the VM.</p>

+                               <p>And the errors do look like the cdmlib dependecies can not be resolved, there are two possible solutions for this problem.</p>
+                               <ol>
+                                       <li><em>cdmlib-plugin</em> does not contain the cdmlib dependencies

+                                       </li>
+                                       <li>Your classpath is outdated
+                                               <p>Update your classpath by right-clicking any of the <em>taxeditor-*</em> projects and choose <em>PDE Tools -&gt; Update Classpath...</em>. Click &lt;Select All&gt; in the dialog and confirm.</p>

+                       <answer>
+                               <p>This could be due to many reasons. Please have a look at the <a href="http://dev.e-taxonomy.eu/trac/wiki/TroubleshootingEditorLaunches">Troubleshooting Editor Launches</a> document on the developers wiki.</p>

+                       <answer>
+                               <p>Whenever you change something in the plguin dependency hirarchy, i.e. adding, (re)moving, or renaming a dependant plugin your run configuration does not know about that automatically. To solve this:</p>
+                               <ul>
+                                       <li>In eclipse, open the <em>Run Configurations</em> wizard</li>
+                                       <li>Choose the run configuration in question</li>

+               <faq id="ubuntu_gtk2_eclipse_rcp_crash">
+                       <question>The Taxonomic Editor crashes or freezes in recent Ubuntu versions</question>
+                       <answer>
+                               <p>In recent Ubuntu versions (13.04, 13.10) the Taxomomic Editor crashes frequently (KDE) or freezes for some time (GNOME). The crashes in KDE are due to a bug which affects all Eclipse indigo (3.7) RCP based applications. Even this bug is currently discussed in the affected developer communities: <a href="https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity/+bug/1241101">launchpad bug 1241101</a>, <a href="https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=419729">eclipse bug 419729</a> the cause of this bug is still unclear.
+                           </p>
+                               <p>In KDE the crash occurs when the oxygene_gtk is being used. Therefore switching to another GTK2 theme is known as a  temporary solution. The GTK2 theme Raleigh has been sucessfully used as a replacement to the oxygen_gtk2. You can either configure it globally or set the environmanet variable GTK2_RC_FILES for the application to run.</p>
+                               <p>
+                               <code>GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc "/path/to/EDIT Taxonomic Editor/TaxonomicEditor"</code>
+                       </p>
+                               <p>The font size is usually too big in the default configration of this theme. In order to have a nicer font, you can create a file named .gtkrc-eclipse in your user home folder with the following content:</p>
+<pre>style "eclipse" {
+        font_name = "Ubuntu 9"
+}
+class "GtkWidget" style "eclipse"
+</pre>
+                               <p>Finally, to launch the Editor, use following command line:</p>
+<p>
+                               <code>GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Raleigh/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:~/.gtkrc-eclipse "/path/to/EDIT Taxonomic Editor/TaxonomicEditor"</code>
