unfortunately this configuration file doesn't work. I am still to use _JAVA_OPTIONS which is annoying, cause every time I start anything written in Java I face a message "Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS ...".
Fix at least this conf file!

  Native Look and Feel for Swing does not work

Status in openjdk-7 package in Ubuntu:
Status in openjdk-8 package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Openjdk-7 and openjdk-8 do not enable native look and feel by default. But they support it. Apps use ugly blue theme, even if the code contains "UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName());"
  I've tried Xubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu Mate 16.04 - apps look ugly. (for example logisim)

  To get native LAF you need to use these arguments: _JAVA_OPTIONS 
  -Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on -Dswing.aatext=true -Dswing.defaultlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel -Dswing.crossplatformlaf=com.sun.java.swing.plaf.gtk.GTKLookAndFeel
