Troubleshoot: Viewing reports within the ByteBlower GUI does not work on Linux
Posted by Tim De Backer, Last modified by Pieter Vandercammen on 25 October 2019 10:39 AM
This article is intended for 2.10.2 ByteBlower GUI users or even older versions. Since version 2.11 the ByteBlower GUI opens the report always in an external browser. There's thus no need anymore to follow the guidelines below.
Situation in ByteBlower GUI 2.10
After running a scenario in the ByteBlower GUI, a report is always created. Such reports are typically displayed within the ByteBlower GUI application.
On Linux this doesn't work! The following behaviour may occur:
The problem seems to be present in Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04 and Fedora 21.
The reports are presented in the GUI using an internal browser. If no valid HTML rendering engine is present on the system, the reports cannot be shown.
Sometimes, other programs (such as a standalone browser) may have installed these engines and this issue will not occur.
To solve this issue, you need to install the correct WebKit rendering package. This package depends on the Linux distribution you use.
