Yes, I think this should work then.

best regards,

Ok that's good to know so if we can get rid of glass-gtk we could at least run 
on gtk3 - as long as one does not use swing-awt in fx - i think all is better

Hi Tom,

I ran ldd for, and I see that it doesn't link to GTK libraries. 
However, does, so if you play any media files (either directly, 
or on a webpage open in webkit), then the GTK2 libraries will be loaded.

best regards,

Starting with Eclipse Luna (released in end of June) the default mode of
SWT on Linux is to make use of Gtk3.

As far as I understand the situation Glass on Linux is linked against
Gtk2 so JavaFX components that need glass (=fairly everything beside
javafx-properties) will fail to load - in fact i got reports that the
JVM crashes.

IIRC i read that monocole has a port that directly uses X11 would it be
a work-around to run with this port when running in swt-embedding?

Am I right that the webkit binaries are also linked against gtk2 or do I
remember this wrong?
