I added a new feature Friday and would like some help testing it.

This new feature (8087516: Conditional support for GTK 3 on Linux) allows us to use either GTK v2 or 3 with JavaFX.

The default has not changed - we will use gtk 2 by preference.

The help I need is for anyone doing testing on Linux with the current tree - like todays sanity testing. Adding


should output the version detected and used. I would appreciate a paste of that along with the OS version.


toggles the preferred version to GTK 3. Testing using that toggled would also be appreciated, along with a note to me with the OS version.
