           Summary: [GTK] Move towards Xvfb-less testing
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools / Tests
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Gtk should start running tests in a real desktop environment and abandon current usage of Xvfb.

Here's a short and incomplete pros & cons list:
- WebGL tests could be run
- The future Clutter port is currently doing the same, so testing facilities (as in bots) could be shared between the ports
- If possible, the standardized theme (look at first con) could apply mac-style-like appearance to some elements (e.g. list menu items), making tests that are tailored for mac port style passable

- A theme must be standardized and applied when testing to ensure same results across different systems
- There would be windows popping around when testing is performed, but this annoyance could be reduced by minimizing them upon showing
- Lots of rebaselining due to theme change

If you see any other pros/cons, do share.

This shall server as a metabug for these changes.
