I tried installing XML Copy Editor, and whenever I try to open an XML file in it, it crashes. It seems like it just shuts off, as though I clicked close, because it doesn't generate and error log. How do I get it to work?


It's known issue: link

You'll have to build it from source, or wait for it author.
And I'm not quite sure, but I think you'll need version, and not the latest, which wont build because of dependencies


Got same problem for me below commands works as a fix (on Ubuntu 12.04):

mkdir ~/compilexmlcopyeditor && cd ~/compilexmlcopyeditor
sudo apt-get purge xmlcopyeditor
sudo apt-get build-dep xmlcopyeditor
sudo apt-get source xmlcopyeditor
cd xmlcopyeditor-
sudo dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -us -b
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

  • It works! Now I can open a file without crashing. – Carsten Agger Oct 30 '13 at 12:59
