    I was able to start PPT on RedHat 5.6...following the instructions on this topic:

    https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=77777777-0000-0000-0000-000014900959

    In addition you have to add in  the PATH variable of the user the path of xulrunner installation.

    So if you run xulrunner from xulrunner installation directory the output must be:

    
    [root@hostname ~]# xulrunner
    Mozilla XULRunner 1.9.2.19
    
    Usage: xulrunner [OPTIONS]
           xulrunner APP-FILE [APP-OPTIONS...]
    
    OPTIONS
          --app                  specify APP-FILE (optional)
      -h, --help                 show this message
      -v, --version              show version
      --gre-version              print the GRE version string on stdout
      --register-global          register this GRE in the machine registry
      --register-user            register this GRE in the user registry
      --unregister-global        unregister this GRE formerly registered with
                                 --register-global
      --unregister-user          unregister this GRE formely registered with
                                 --register-user
      --find-gre <version>       Find a GRE with version <version> and print
                                 the path on stdout
      --install-app <application> [<destination> [<directoryname>]]
                                 Install a XUL application.
    
    APP-FILE
      Application initialization file.
    
    APP-OPTIONS
      Application specific options.
    
    

    If PPT starts, you can see the starting image, but after it the application hungs, could be a conflict problem with the xulrunner installed by default in the RedHat server (comes with Firefox i think) in /usr/lib64.

    Look  this bug:

    https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=174395

    I've find the same error in PPT/workspace/.metadata/.log

    !ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2014-04-22 16:30:01.692
    !MESSAGE Application error
    !STACK 1
    org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: XPCOM error -2147467259
            at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Mozilla.error(Mozilla.java:2414)
            at org.eclipse.swt.browser.Mozilla.initXULRunner(Mozilla.java:2377)

    In my enviroment the only way to solve this problem was to remove the rpm package with rpm -e --nodeps command.
