I reported the bug below to fix this same issue for Ubuntu:
JavaFX support is in Oracle JDK 9 but missing in Ubuntu OpenJDK 9
You can comment there if you're interested in seeing support for JavaFX
be part of the default installation of OpenJDK 9 or 10 on Ubuntu. I'm
hoping it can get included in time for the next Long Term Support
release of Ubuntu 18.04 in April.
