      Description

      Whenever a standalone JavaFX 2 application is started it fails due to a missing dependency on one or more DLLs on Windows. Even if the JavaFX 2 runtime is installed the same problem occurs. Below is a typical error message that appears when attempting to start a standalone JavaFX 2 application in the console:

      It would be interesting to see if there is a similar issue with starting a standalone JavaFX 2 application on Ubuntu. Many of the required JavaFX libraries are already available straight out of the box (mainly the Gnome libraries including GStreamer). Unfortunately JavaFX 2 does not support Linux yet therefore there is no way to test this.

      Why does a required library have to be placed in a directory called "bin" when it should be in one called "lib"?
