You mean to remove the dependency on GTK and use the X11 code?

It would make sense to try to avoid loading GTK at all if we don't
need it, so I would prefer this. On the other end, with Wayland
approaching we should move to a platform agnostic toolkit (GTK or find
an alternative).

Eventually, I would like to see (in the long run at least) more
abstraction here, the way everything is mixed up makes things more

So bottom line I'm open to make this change, let me know if you would
like me to port this code to JDK9 and remove the current references to
GTK in Robot.c.
