Intel® C++ Compiler for Linux* - Install reports that a supported browser was not found


This is applicable if you're using the 9.1 version of the compiler, as in version 10.x, 10.x, and the latest 11.0 releases,  the common Eclipse* base components (the Eclipse* Platform Binary, Eclipse* C/C++ Development Tools* (CDT), and a JRE) are no longer provided in the compiler kit.

When installing Eclipse* component on some Linux* distributions using the 9.1 version of the compiler, you may see the following message:

The Eclipse component is being installed... The installation program was not able to find required versions of the supported Web Browsers, Mozilla* (1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7) or Firefox* (1.0). Install one of the required versions of Web Browser later and make it your default Web Browser.


The installation script doesn't recognize the existing web browsers.


You can safely ignore the above message. It will not affect the functionality of Eclipse* or Intel® C++ Compiler's plug-in to Eclipse; but you may encounter problems when viewing some HTML documentation. Please check† for troubleshooting the problems.
