Hello AWT team,

please review the fix
for the issue

64-bit linux usually does not have a full set of 32-bit gnome and gtk 
libraries installed, so it fails to open URIs like
http:// , mailto: etc. with 32-bit JDK since gtk_show_uri uses gio 
library to handle such URIs.
Normally user should use 64-bit JDK instead of 32-bit.

This fix enables update_supported_actions() check for Linux too. It was 
recently added in JDK-8029263
