Aptana Studio 2.0.5 on Ubuntu 10.04

Aptana Studio 2.0.5 used to work well in my Ubuntu 9.04. It started to split out error message related to xulrunner after I updated Ubuntu to 10.04. When I removed the Apatana and its workspace, it even stopped to show the messages and silently crashed. After digging and trying for almost an afternoon, I fixed the problem by adding this line to the AptanaStudio.ini file:
You might change the path to whatever on your system. Note that there is a /usr/lib/xulrunner directory on my system, but that does not contain or link to the real literary files. I did not try if export the $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME to the real xulrunner lib path will also work.
