Every desktop environment has its own specific API for this, which is
often Gnome but now is increasingly one of those nice lightweight
environments like OpenBox.  So you must find the functions specific to
the environment, and I bet you they are not GTK+ functions.

The lightest option is FFI if you just need a few functions, like
LuaJIT or the LuaFFI version for regular Lua.
