OK thanks, I thought given the documentation in xfce that it was
supporting openjdk + icedtea.

BTW, on i686 with ATI card, the stock binary midore with webkitgtk2
shows blurry fonts, that's why I moved to webkitgtk3, and that effect
no longer shows up...  I'll see if I better wait till webkitgtk3 gets
better, or go back to webkitgtk2, :-)

Thanks a lot,
