xulrunner-stub - Generic binary to run xulrunner applications


xulrunner-stub is not intended to be executed standalone. Doing so will only trigger a "Could not read application.ini" message. xulrunner-stub is intended to be copied or symbolic-linked to a xulrunner application directory, where an application.ini file lies. It is recommended that the symbolic link is named after the application. An application requiring a specific major version of the xulrunner runtime (e.g. 15.0.*) should target the symbolic link at the corresponding specific xulrunner-stub (e.g. /usr/lib/xulrunner-15.0/xulrunner-stub). On the other hand, an application with a broad range of supported version should target the symbolic link at /usr/bin/xulrunner-stub.
